I have a mere 7% :-)

Nerds can't dance. You obviously can!
Jan. 2nd, 2005 09:06 pm (UTC)
I had an 11.

Not enough questions about obsessional commitment to particular films such as T***********g or L** *********s. Otherwise you would have done better. (For some values of "better".)

I'm amazed you didn't get a lot more marks for your habit of obsessively compiling lists of things...

Still, I'm amazed I'm as low-ranking as I am. Just as well there were no questions about writing newsletters.

Yes, I was surprised by the comparatively low scores for both you and me. And (in the other direction) by the three women immediately ahead of me in the rankings!
Jan. 2nd, 2005 09:10 pm (UTC)
For the record, I got 47%: Lightly Nerdy, and pretty much bang in the middle of the statistical curve. ;)

Yes, your classical education and lack of experience with manganese probably helped...

56 for me, probably because I was a chemistry major in my former life and I haven't thrown out the graphing calculator from back then yet.

...I'm wondering how one would get a 98 on that thing. O_o

I think you have to have several published sf novels and a failed career as a technical writer!

So THAT'S what I've done wrong. - seawasp - Jan. 3rd, 2005 12:40 pm (UTC) - Expand

I got 24% so am a 'wannabe nerd'...though I'm perfectly content NOT being a nerd :D
Jan. 2nd, 2005 10:53 pm (UTC)
I was 20% - wannabe nerd - and coincidentally, I also have a Mr Flibble icon. It must be a wannabe nerd thing.

Damn Stross anyway!
One Lousy Point??? I get 97 and he has to go get 98!

Join the club. I have a big sack of door knobs with his name on it. You in for a good old lynching?

I wasn't sure if their definition of nerdy was the same as the ones I've experienced, which included hyperfocus on darn near anything, not just the sciences... but then, I'm not really worried, either. I'll be one in my own little way.

Crazy(too nonchalant to be truly nerdy?)Soph
Jan. 2nd, 2005 11:04 pm (UTC)
I scored a paltry 10 - "not a nerd".
Jan. 3rd, 2005 10:37 am (UTC)
yeah, you and me both girl.

FF, with a sad 8.
Jan. 3rd, 2005 01:05 am (UTC)
70, to add another data point, making me the lowliest of the Mid-Rank Nerds :-)
Jan. 3rd, 2005 01:58 am (UTC)
Ack, I only got 97% because I don't kill insects :P.
Jan. 3rd, 2005 10:36 am (UTC)
91 for me, with a bunch of results from other people in the comments.

(slovobooks sent me)

Am friend of davesangel, strange_complex and nyphur and I thought I would add my score to your list as it looked organised.

I am amazed I got so high a score as I assumed I would get a mid-range mark.

I am nerdier than 74% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!
Jan. 3rd, 2005 11:42 am (UTC)
I meant mid-range as 35-55.

Jan. 3rd, 2005 04:26 pm (UTC)
Thought I would add my name to the list for the sake of completeness.

74 - Mid-Rank Nerd

I'll go see if I can find more friends to comment. It'll be a meme in its own right.

Missed this the first time round...
