I am a Total Geek! (NOT!)

the Geek Test gives me 27.2% geekiness. The Answer is 42... I was on my high school's Dollars for Scholars TV Trivia team... 7 of 9 is not really about percentages but hotness, and Junkyard Wars is awesome for imagining post-apocalyptic survival. Imagine what a geek I'd be if I understood how the inside of a computer works, or knew any computer languages, or how to program, or, really, anything more than how to make these programs go!

Hey HappyCindy's brother -- take this test and let me know how you fare. You understand all the computer stuff which will give you great point scores (although perhaps your successful social skills and incredible good looks will detract from your total score) . Don't you have to be an Extreme Geek or above to be making money from your geekiness?

This is their scale.

+ Geekish Tendencies................................≥09%
++ Geek.............................................≥15%
+++ Total Geek......................................≥25%
++++ Major Geek.....................................≥35%
+++++ Super Geek....................................≥45%
++++++ Extreme Geek.................................≥55%
+++++++ Geek God....................................≥65%
+++++++! Dysfunctional Geek.........................≥75%

THE GEEK TEST UPDATE

My mom clicked on the link I've removed above, and her internet security suite identified an "intrusion attempt" from that website. Mine didn't though, and it's the same companies program, and up to date, and I'm not enough of a geek to understand why hers did and mine did not, so I have removed the link.

If you're geeky enough to understand such things, or if you're just foolhardy, the address is http://www.innergeek.us/geek-test.html. but i'm not embedding the link b/c I don't want to be responsible for anyone else clicking through w/o thinking about it.

HappyCindy's brother may understand and explain????? Or Michelle?

I made it to Major Geek (43%) - I would have been a Super Geek if I hadn't sold/given away all that stuff this summer. :-)

As to the quirkiness of your mom's computers reaction to this site - there is nothing about it that I can tell that is weird - the site didn't even set a cookie, or have a pop-up I could tell. So I'm mystified on that one.

HappyCindy's Brother here -- though growing up, I knew her more often as CrankyCindy, but I digress...

I scored a pathetic 26% allowing me to claim title to just "Total Geek".

Well, that was fun - back to the Brady Bunch episode #72!

I scored a measly 17.357% - Geek. Although I founded the local chapter of JETS (Junior Engineeering Techincal Society) in high school, scored many points for my watching of Food Network, and read sci-fi in 9th grade (only because it was required reading - along with the BIBLE!...public HS in Texas, go figure), I am just a plain 'ole Geek. My score was influenced primarily by: 1. My father, who believed that "math 'word questions' are fun!" and taught me Morse code at the tender age of nine, 2. High school boyfriend, who was really into D&D, playing into the wee hours of the morning in a friend's converted garage - that friend now owns a comic book store; bf tried to get me into it by enticing me with pretty dice . And of course, 3. Dear Hubby (aka Cindy's brother, Dave) who has me trained to despise Bill Gates (although I still use Word and Excel regularly), shows me stuff through his telscope (ok, I gave him that toy), and reminds me to turn off the wireless connection when not in use, so as to thwart possible hacking attempts (which is a good idea anyway). If the quiz had involved more questions regarding participation on debate teams, disdain for popular people, or references to IB/AP/honors coursework and/or high GPAs, then I would have score higher. Not sure if that would have been a good or bad thing.....

So ashamed: Only 14.2%. When I was much younger, I would have scored higher. Those were the days!

HA! I did the worst of all of you... might have something to do with getting toward antique? Score was only 7.49507% (poser). My nerd score on the other hand was a bit better-- 28% (Nerdtests.com) Can you tell I don't know html if it isn't wissiwyg?
