"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

yes, i am

i took the nerd/geek/dork test at okcupid.com. for being honest, i got...

Modern, Cool Nerd
78% Nerd, 73% Geek, 34% Dork

For The Record: A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 91% on nerdiness
You scored higher than 96% on geekosity
You scored higher than 55% on dork points

oh well. results show that i'm undeniably nerdy and geeky. mwahahaha. i'm damn proud of that fact. i surely won't mind if someone'll call me "nerd" (or "geek") straight to my face. after all, not everybody gets to be like that.

now, it's your turn to find out what you are... go here. perhaps, you'll enjoy answering the other tests, too.

no, i don't have an account there.


  1. Pure Nerd daw ko!
    56 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 8% Dork


  2. BabyPink, ...and you’re only 8% dork. inggit ako sa 8%!

  3. My result:

    Pure Nerd
    82 % Nerd, 13% Geek, 13% Dork

    My question is, I’m ONLY 82% nerd? I’m disappointed.

  4. Abaniko, i may only be 78% nerd (compared to your disappointing 82%) but i’m also 73% geek. to be nerdy and to be geeky at the same time is something more than i was hoping for. mwehehehe…

    and, oh shit, i’m 34% dork (waaaaaahh… i’m still 34% dork!!! waaaaaahh…) now, that’s what i call disappointing. please, i don’t wanna be a dork!


  5. Outcast Genius
    65 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 56% Dork

  6. i gave up after question 23. guess that would make me lazy dork. :)

  7. ripplemaker, whoa, you're 56% dork. you're an outcast indeed. nevermind, you're still nerdy and geeky, too.

    rudy man, maybe you'll be classified under u.n.d.e.f.i.n.e.d.

  8. Yeah, cripes jud! I better get back to watching Monty Python sketches.

  9. i do have a memory problem… i always forget other people’s name even though they were really close to me..

    “hoy, hoy, ano bang pangalan mo..?” pause…’ erika yun!… ano nga uli yung sinasabi mo?”

    and i am not exaggerating

  10. oh my god!! napost ko dito yung comment ko para dun sa isa… sorry…
