QUIZ: How Geek Are You?

I think one should get extra points if this is the nth Geek Test one has taken....

73% GeekMingle2.com

So, from the looks of it, I'm only a geek up to my armpits. I'm head and shoulders above geekiness. *NOD*

I got a 'B' (85%). I can't believe I only got a 'B'!!! At least I got better than both of you, but that is a small comfort ;-)

BTW, Don't you have to be extremely anti-social to be a geek? (eat live worms or something)

I'm 38%.
I found it unfair to pose questions re: tv shows and films one might never had the chance to see. Plus, a certain kind of geekiness comes by NOT WATCHING tv or film at all.
I think this test is seriously biased.

SF - I think the word "Geek" at least nowadays in the US includes an inherent component of watching Sci-Fi movies and/or TV. Katja hates Sci-Fi, so her geek quotient was really low :)

oh, thanks for the explanation. I was unaware of that.

I'm not sure if I'm correct on that, SF, but I think at least the makers of the quiz seemed to identify geekdom with sci-fi nerds (which I am - or... 73% of me is ).

oh, yes, it's not what that word really means, but what the makers of the test think it means that counts.
