How Geeky Are You?

Amy Stephen mentioned this quiz in her blog and I thought it would be a good one to post here, especially since the statistics at the end say “The average score for the gals is 38, while the guy average is 56.” I think we lady-geeks need to get on the ball and raise our average. I did my part to bump up the score:

My computer geek score is greater than 80% of all people in the world! How do you compare? Click here to find out!

Had my parents not been too cheap to buy us an Atari, I think I could have had a much higher ranking. :-P Feel free to post your results here and let me know if the “average gal” score goes up.

So tell us – How Geeky Are You? :-B

    I am a computer user wannabe. I got a 29. But I just wanna say that I can type most people under the table. LOL!

    I did my best for the girls and scored 84, I’m geekier than I thought :)

    Kel – I said we wanted to RAISE the average for the girls. [-X It is true you can out-type me, however, my goal for this year is to get to 90 WPM, so watch out…

    LornaJane – you rock. Way to go! ^:)^

    I’m a old geek – so, I got an 88. It’s like counting the rings on the trees. Need you younger ladies to step up the pace, though. I’m growing weary! ;)

    I’m a disaster.

  6. Rita on January 29, 2007 at 1:51 pm

    I scored 51.

    I’m a wannabe geeky.

    Hi Ladies! Nice intro! How do you put up with this woman? ;)

    Great quiz.

    I got a 63 though I knew when I answered some of the questions my score was going down. If I cheated I’m sure I could have broke 80.

    0% scored higher (more computer geeky),
    0% scored the same, and
    100% scored lower (less geeky).

    What does this mean? Your computer geekiness is:

    Step aside Bill Gates, Linus Torvalds, and Steve Jobs… You are by far the SUPREME COMPUTER GOD!!!

    Gretchen, can you perhaps edit this posts, and paste this code as actual html please. :-D

  15. gretchen on February 15, 2007 at 3:33 pm

    [-( No can do…
    Crafty, if you scored that high then you should be able to figure out how to paste the code in yourself. /:)
