My week has not gone very well. I want to write something serious, but I'm having a very hard time focusing.
78 % Nerd, 34% Geek, 52% 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 Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material. |
The classic, "80's" nerd, you are what most people think of when they think "nerd," largely due to 80's movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class. You're exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you're realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won't--it's really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you're fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?

The first time I was ever called a dork was when I was in the fifth grade. I don't remember why or what the circumstances were. I just remember that it meant I wasn't desirable as a friend. It hurt, and remembering it still hurts. I don't really even fit in with "smart" people. Hmm... Maybe this will turn into something serious. That psychoeducational assessment that indicated that I was performing below the level expected for someone of my intelligence... The tester thought I was experiencing stress attempting to keep up in a fast-paced environment. I didn't. I just chose not to try to keep up with things I knew I couldn't do. I had known that higher math would be too hard for me, so I dropped out of the honors math program even though I knew that I could have done geometry at a younger age. That wasn't a negative thing. It was common sense.
But the real stress came much later. The real stress is trying to deal with being interested in things academic and thus unable to relate socially to most people but not quite being able to master enough academics to relate to the well-above-average people who most enjoy it and whom I find interesting. My reasoning ability is very good, but my vocabulary is still fairly limited with the exception of medical/theological terms. I often go into a class and feel like I've missed some kind of prerequisite material and if only I could find the "catch up book" I would be able to participate ok.
I DO know these are supposed to be just for fun... But at least it made me think.
