    I'm a low level nerd. 35% are nerdier. I'm a nerd and I'm not even good at it.

    And it turns out only 4% of loser-test takers are bigger losers than I am. Figures.

    I am somewhat nerdy at 58%. If I had taken this test back when I was university I probably would have scored a bit higher - it is definitely geared towards younger nerds. Also, I think that my professional designation and job description should entitle me to some bonus points. ;)

    I don't remember if this test has ever been posted here, but I have a feeling we're all in trouble:

    84% are higher.
    16% are lower.

    Not nerdy, but then again maybe not all that cool either.

    64% are lower- 36% are higher. Low ranking nerd. Actually I figure that to be about right.

    In fact if it wasn't for my love of math and computers plus not liking Authority I would be a normal, average human being.

    33% scored higher; 67% scored lower. "Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds."
    And here I thought I'd get an 80% or higher... Especially from having memorized the periodic table.

    And from that other geek quiz... I rank at 25.83826%, "Total Geek."
    But then, computer programs never think I'm a nerd... Which is good, because if computers could think, there'd be none of us here.

    I got my friend to do it, and he got 94%. Apparently, he is King Nerd, and must apply to MIT immediately. Though the 33% gap between me and him is pretty substantial, I wonder what caused it?

    I got 59% Nerdy, which I considered low.
    28.something% Geek, seems more correct considering the type of questions.
