The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

What’s your geek factor?



I firmly fall into the “geek” category (with a hint of “dweeb”) according to this Venn Diagram (spotted on OZ), as I’ve long suspected.  Good to know my instincts were right.

It’s always prudent to see if you can replicate your findings, however.  So I present additional evidence:

The most common google queery that leads people to this blog is “Science Geek”.

How geeky are you would describe me as a “moderate academic geek”.

The Geek Test v 1.0.3 says I’m only 26.7834% geek.  (DIRTY LIES!!!)

The Nerd Test, however, has me among the 63rd percentile of nerds.  Similarly, the Geek Test says I`m 60% geeky, and  this science geek test places me at 69th percentile (and I get the title “Doctor”, hee).  I scored 11/11 on Test your science savy.

I like the “how geeky are you” approach: it recognizes that there are multiple facets of geekdom (pop culture, technology, food, academic, etc.), much in the way educators now acknowledge the existence of multiple intelligences.  I bet, if I could find a “How much of a BUG geek are you” test, I’d score pretty darn high.  (Sadly, a Google search yeilds nothing.  Hm.  A project for a rainy day, perhaps?)
So…
What makes YOU get your geek on?

    Well, as soon as I saw this post I thought "Ooooooh! Venn diagram!" Whoa- that's pretty geeky.

    Bonus points duly awarded for geekerific gut reaction.
