Modern, Cool Nerd

Kelly at Big A little a was fearful this was a time waster. Not so. An important task awaits.

I am a Modern Cool Nerd!! I am sure this question tipped the balance:
Do you have any themed decoration in your home/office other than color/material coordination? (Disney, frogs, unicorns, Star Wars, etc.)

Have I ever mentioned our Lord of the Rings room?
People who come to the front door jump when I open the door and they see Argorn looming over my shoulder.

After you figure out your Nerd level, click over to Little Willow. She has an assignment for us Nerd Fighters.

Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd

73 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 47% 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)!
