Geeky or not?


Enough is enough! This past week, two friends -- one on his blog; another on a comments thread on this blog -- have taken to referring to me as their "geeky friend". And even though I admit to having variously referred to myself as an anthro geek, a beer geek and a movie geek, I got to wondering whether I really am geeky.

So, I went over to blogthings and tried out its How Geeky Are You? quiz with the following results:-

Your Geek Profile:



Academic Geekiness: Highest

Movie Geekiness: High

Internet Geekiness: Moderate

Geekiness in Love: Low

SciFi Geekiness: Low

Fashion Geekiness: None

Gamer Geekiness: None

General Geekiness: None

Music Geekiness: None

Now the question is: how geeky are you?? ;b

Hi Horsoon --

Teehee and thanks for the compliment (I think!). ;b

Hi sbk --

Woah, you're even more geeky than me! Maybe I should start referring to YOU as "my geeky friend"!! ;D

sbk said...

ytsl,

Hehe ....I know... and if I were more savy in regards to all the electronic and computer stuff I'd hate to see my score........

YTSL said...

Hi again sbk --

At the same time, both of our "general geekiness" scores are zero. So... ;b

I'm an IT idiot. blah.

kitliew said...

At least I refer you as my intellectual friend :))))

Hi eastcoastlife --

You're not geeky in *any* way/category?? Wow, if so!!!

Hi Kit --

I know. Seems like you're so much nicer than your significant other! ;D

Okay, this criticism of that poll will reveal my geekiness but the music category is not that geeky.

All the acts listed have geeky traits or personality styles but the band that separates the geek from the non-geek is The Fall.

Having worked in 3 record stores and shopped in dozens more, I can safely say the degree to which a person is into The Fall is a better measure of music geekiness.

Hi Glenn --

Hmm... the music category may not have been all that geeky to you and yet I scored "zero" on the music geek category! And FWIW, I have zero clue as to who The Fall are and what its music sounds like!! ;D
