(Since this post, OkCupid has turned into the kind of internet dating site I don’t like… so sad, I’m gone.)
I’m totally hooked on OkCupid! It’s a crossover community/dating site. They have these tests that range from stupid (which you skip) to the hilarious. Key tests are hooked into their ‘matching’ algorithms and judge your compatibility with everyone else on the site. When you look at someone’s profile, your test results line up with theirs. You get to make up your own tests. It’s awfully frickin’ sweet for being free. Plus, the name has got to be a reference to Radiohead’s OK COMPUTER.
|Modern, Cool Nerd
65 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 39% Dork
|For The Record:A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.
Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
