Are you a geek? Take the test and find out!



Updated: April 17, 2010

Dr. von Kackensprecher strikes again! Geekiness is not a 1D state. There are many categories of geekiness. You may be a sci-fi geek or you may be a computer geek. Or both. Geekiness is a multi-value physical and emotional condition. But not all is lost. There's no reason to be ashamed. Being geek has become popular recently, with the invent of Internet and whatnot. While in the past, geeks used to be laboratory rats, geeks today look and feel and behave pretty much like the rest of us, ordinary people, except now and then, they have these little giveaways that classify them as geeks.

Would you like to know if you're one? Then, take the test and bask in the infinite wisdom of Dr. von Kackensprecher's ... uh-oh ... wisdom. After taking the test, you will know for sure if you're a geek, and better yet, what kind of a geek.

Test rules

You will need a piece of paper and something to write with. Or you can be a geek and sum it all up in gnumeric. Either way, you will need to sum your points, as you answer the questions. There's no scoring formula. Each answer will have its own unique score. Now, take the test. Don't be afraid.

Geek meter

That's it, the ultimate social test. Time to sum it all up ... Let's see how you fare on the life scale! Oh, by the way, add 100 points to your score for just taking this test. Only geeks would really take it.

0 points

You're not a geek. Seriously.

1-100 points

You have some, minute characteristics of a geek, nothing major. You get along in life just fine. Most of the time, people have no idea you're a secret Star Trek fan.

101-500 points

You are a bit of a social outcast, but you manage to hide the facts most of the time. Your intelligence and sense of humor are often enough to wiggle your way out of embarrassment or stigma. In technical terms, you're a cool geek. You talk the talk and walk the walk, but you also mingle with the plebes and can hold your conversation without talking about geeky stuff.

501-1,000 points

Geekiness becomes you. You're most at home among the hi-techies and you like gadgets. But you're afraid of Trekkies and Richard Stallman frightens you. You played Dungeons and Dragons, cause you thought it was a cool way of getting to know the girls.

1,001-10,000 points

Not being able to talk to common people is hard enough, having a nasty streak and an attitude of an ulcerous badger does not really help you in life. But you thrive on spiteful anger and vent your frustration by writing memos in Fortran. You solve math puzzles for fun and you laugh when other people have accidents. If you could, you would leadpipe your way down the chain of cubicles, but you don't have the guts for that.

10,001+ points

You're a special case. If you were born in the Middle Ages, you would be leading Crusades and suchlike, only you would do that by advising everyone converts to Linux rather than any contemporary religion. You frighten people with your theories, in the rare moments your spiritual aura and the world co-align. You're a geek for the sake of geekiness, and you don't even really enjoy it. You recite entire sci-fi movies, just to frighten people off.

Conclusion

There we go, the fairest, most balanced geek test you've ever seen in your life, a genuine masterpiece of cunning, sociology and technology. You would not trust a mere shrink with this kind of stuff, but Dr. von Kackensprecher is the right man for the right task.
