|What Be Your Nerd Type? |
Your Result: Drama Nerd
You sure do love the spotlight and probably have a very out-going and loud personality. Or not. That's just a stereotype, of course. Participation in the theatre is something to be very proud of. Whether you have a great voice for musicals, or astounding skills for dramas/comedies; keep up the good work. We need more entertainment these days that isn't television and video games (not that these things are bad, necessarily.)

Heh. I clicked through, and got all the way to question number 2. Given that I refused to answer because it only offered male/female, I think it's safe to say that I achieve the hidden result of "Queer Nerd".

:-) As I said, something is Wrong on the internet ;-)
Well, I suppose mine was quite accurate, with Literature Nerd first and Drama Nerd second, but this sort of quiz should include a "None of the above" (or "I am not an American High School pupil"!) answer for each question. (For instance: I was very good at maths at school, but gave it up as soon as I could, because I didn't enjoy it, so none of the maths/science options would appeal to me, but not because I couldn't do it or because I hate it, just that I am indifferent/it would bore me too much.)
Science/Math first, which doesn't surprise me, but Gamer/Computer down at fourth. I think that's because, although I'm a full-time compsci at work, I hardly ever play games. Kinda rules out the 'gamer' bit, doesn't it?

Mine always comes out to be whatever I chose for the penultimate question. Hooray for silly internet quizzes that don't work.

This is the result I'd expect (although I wouldn't think of you as a computer nerd).
Well, I got Science/Math nerd, but I also got irritated by a bunch of the questions, not least the spelling of "da Vinci" and "van Gogh".
Question 26 worries me: who reads fewer than sixty books in a lifetime? In the UK it's surely impossible even to get through mandatory full-time education without reading sixty books. The options ought to go up to "600+" at the very least, maybe "60,000+" — there must be at least one octogenarian who reads two books a day and still has time to answer stupid polls on the Internet.
And where did CG go on the alignment question, eh? Eh?
I'm with you on the number of books read (and similarly for the number of books read a month).
Question 26 worries me: who reads fewer than sixty books in a lifetime?
Young people? But yes, that was my objection. In my living room, sixty books is about two shelves, and I've got twelve shelves of books I'd recommend no-one die without reading, and maybe a thousand total, and many friends think my library is still a bit wimpy :)
(OTOH, I do often reread books, so despite reading lots of books in a week, the total in my lifetime probably isn't that much higher than the number of books I have.)

Hey, they left out chaotic good! This is a stupid test :)
:) And Lawful -- I think, despite my first impression of wondering if pure lawful people existed (Odo?), I might incline to that more than anything else :)

'Lawful neutral - bureaucrat' has been the description since I started played at any rate (AD&D 2nd).
I've never thought of you as a creator of paperwork before. Hold on while I flip to CE to kill you, it's for the greater good!
Oh, hm. That doesn't sound so good. There aren't many bureaucrat heroes.
I realise the alignment system is a bit ad hoc, but I see it as a altruistic-personal axis, and an instinctive-way-to-achieve-that axis. So lawful could mean a jobsworth, or an average joe who tended to the authoritarian, but was pretty average on the moral axis.
But it could also mean someone with great personal honour, right? A hero who always keeps her word is often LG. A villain who always keeps her word is often LE. A mercenary who always keeps her word would have to be LN. Maybe? :)

LOL. Obviously, I love the ones that do exist :)
Cool. But I got "Social nerd" which is nice, but "Maybe the least nerdish of all", which I don't think is exactly right. I don't think I ever failed to click the maximum on any science/maths question, but apparently so :)
(I might have got some wrong: I don't do much gaming. And I don't spend that long a day on my computer, because I have to go to work (grr) and use theirs for like eight hours a day. And I might have failed to click the top option for "do you want to be a scientist like blah" because I wasn't sure if the sort of scientist I might want to be was "like" the sort of scientists they listed. I was probably too pedantic: someone might write a test without knowing everything about my social group :))
Heh. Whereas I spend so long on my work computer that I (a) have many non-work programs and documents on it, and (b) think of it as "my" computer just as much as my home machine :)
I was doing fine till question 41, where I had a major "I have to choose?!" moment :) I love computer games, and anime, and maths, and books, and drama!
I ended up getting Science Nerd - 79% (which seems to include mathematician as well), but with a 5-way tie for second place of Literature, Gamer/Computer, Social, Anime (all at 70%) and Drama (at 69%) :-)

Unrelatedly - what's the thing you have where fruit makes your throat painful? Ifear I may have a similar thing with yoghurt...

In an undiagnosed 'I spend too much time on the internet' way, it's oral allergy syndrome
. But I think it's traditionally just raw fruit and veg.

Thank you! Yes, it has become apparent as a cold since then :(
