GEEK QUIZ: The developers of this geek quiz say: “Oh no! Another geek quiz. This one’s a little different, though. Rather than assuming you have to be a computer whiz to be considered a geek, we here at Thudfactor have tried to locate the essence, the quiddity, the spirit (if you will) [Editor’s note: I won’t] of geekiness. Because you know and I know that web developers, JAVA programmers, and network admins aren’t the only geeks in town.”

My results?

You are 30% geek

“You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

“Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

“You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You’ll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

“Geek [to You]: I’m givin’ her all she’s got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

“You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.“

I should add that my wife predicted I would be 75% geek.
