Excuse me, have you seen my stapler?

There is clearly something very wrong with the HelloQuizzy/OKcupid Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test. It says that I am a Pure Nerd: 91% Nerd, 35% Geek, 39% Dork!

It then goes on to define a Nerd as someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia, a Geek as someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one, and a Dork as someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions. And, I suppose with those definitions, I'm a Nerd. I mean, here I am going back to university "for fun". However, I swear I'm a geek, not a nerd! I feel insulted to be called a nerd!
