Given that I just blogged about David Brancaccio, it should not surprise me that I am a...

Pure Nerd
56 % Nerd, 30% Geek, 34% 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, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

Congratulations!

Nobody suspects a 6-and-a-half foot ex-college football player has an action figure collection or went to a sci-fi convention in full Darth Vader suit...

Actually, Oge, I very much believe that of you. After all, remember that I watched Star Wars with you. Plus, I think you actually used the voice on me without the suit.

I suppose this wouldn't preclude my getting pummeled if I called you "Geek!" to your face, though, would it?
