How Nerdy Are You?

I am nerdier than 91% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

I noticed someone posting their nerd score somewhere this morning (but I forget where). The a colleage starts talking to me a bout some of teh questions and tells me his score.

OK, that’s it; I have to take the test.

The sad thing is that he beat me by 1. One measley point.

If anyone is interested in taking it, just click on the score next to my name up in the title bar or in the image in this entry.


Thanks James, it was indeed Kristy Hens

Update 2

A few of my colleages took the test, so far we have

  • 95 – 2 people
  • 92 – 1 person
  • 91 – 1 person (me)
  • 83 – 1 person
  • 82 – 1 person

  3. Mmm, I scored 90 when I took it yesterday, but then I tried again this morning (just to see if it was consistent) and I scored 91. So I’m now trying to work out how I’ve become 1% nerdier over night – what gives !?
    I’m suspect it might have been due to me watching University Challenge last night, but I’m still thinking about it (which probably answers my question, to be honest 🙂

  5. *sigh*…I scored 92…
    I am NOT a nerd! I just picked things in a pseudorandom manner using weighted probabilities that would…
