That’s Mr. Miller to you

You know, I really thought I had most people fooled.

I work in corporate America, I drive a decent car and live in a nice house.

I have an amazing wife and kids.

But I do wear glasses and I’ve been know to quote The Simpsons, which is really just a slippery slope to actually becoming Comic Book Guy.

Hell, who am I kidding? If you read this blog, you know that I’m a word nerd and I’m also a tad bit geeky about things Muppet.

Here are the scientific results. I think just taking this quiz adds a point to nerdy.

Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd

65 % Nerd, 69% Geek, 17% 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)!
