I took the Nerd Test, and here is the result:

I am nerdier than 81% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

That’s actually a higher score than I was expecting. I was particularly amused at the follow-up question about how I knew the chemical symbol for a particular element. The possible answers included “I found a Periodic Table and looked it up” and “I looked at the Periodic Table next to me”. They did not include “I looked at the Periodic Table in the most recent post to my blog,” which was certainly an option in my case. (I didn’t, though. I am the son of a chemist. I don’t need a Periodic Table to know the symbol for manganese.)

One thought on “High-Nerd

  1. Interesting, and certainly no surprise! I took the test, and am so abysmally non-nerdy that you’d be ashamed of me. So the influence obviously came from someplace else. Maybe your chemist dad started you down this path, but I don’t think he’s very nerdy either. It must be a generational thing. We love nerds, though, and know that they are the world’s most valuable people!
