The Nerd Test, ver 2.0

Welcome to the upgraded NerdTests.com's Nerd Test!

This nerd test will ask serious and funny questions of you to determine exactly what kind of nerd you are, or if you tend towards geekiness in a particular category. Are you a Computer Geek, a Nerd King, a Mega-Dork, or one of the many other nerd-types that exist?

Just like many of the tests on this site, you will receive an award graphic so that you can show others how much of a nerd you are, with the additional ability to customize the graphic with your own picture!

Have fun and share this test with others!
