Poll: What am I?

Neil/totalxsive just posted in his blog about the GeekTest. Well, according to the site, I’m 30% Geek, 30% Goth, 50% Internet Addict, 26% Emo, 29% Ska, 17% Metal Head and 28% Tortured Artist.

Make of it what you will, but as the site says “These tests ARE NOT SCIENTIFIC MEASUREMENTS”.

I am 30% Geek

You probably work in computers, or a history department at a college. You never really fit in with the “normal” crowd. But you have friends, and this is a good thing.

30% geek sounds probably right – I would have put it a little higher myself (I don’t “do” l33t sp3ak stuff), but oh well…

I am 30% Goth

Goth ny night, normal by day. Deep in my heart I know I am evil, but not on the company’s time. I do need to eat.

What?!? How the hell did it work out I’m 30% Goth? Admittedly, I do know (and have gone out with) a Goth or two in my time (I had a crush on one many years ago), but no way would I describe myself as Gothish. I’ve even been once to a “Goth Club” in Leicester – and, let’s face it, I think I’ve had more fun in a crypt! (that bit I’m not joking about – the club was crap, and I do like crypts quite a bit: I’ve been in 3 or 4 and would like to go into a few more when I get the chance).

I am 50% Internet Addict

I am pretty addicted, but there is hope. I think I’m just well connected to the internet and technology, but it’s really a start of a drug-like addiction. I must act now! Unplug this computer!

No comment. 🙂 There’s a good reason why I’ve got broadband internet access at home (that’s on 24/7), why I work in the IT industry developing intra/inter-net based applications and why I’m an editor on the ODP, a constant reader of Slashdot, get most of my news from the BBC News website instead of a paper – and why I don’t understand “No comment”. 🙂

I am 26% Emo

Hmm.. I should stop listening to Dashboard Confessional…. enough said… Now that I stopped looking at my shoes, I know how the real world looks

Pass comment. I don’t even know who or what “Emo” is!

I am 29% Ska

I know the scene, I’ve heard the bands, and I am burned out. Well, these things happen. I will now go ahead and go through the same thing with Punk and Emo.

Well, I know what ‘Ska’ is (it’s a type of music), but exactly what it sounds like – I dunno. I guess I probably scored high because of the question “Have you been made fun of about your taste in music?” – to say I’ve got strange and varied musical tastes is putting it mildly.

I am 17% Metal Head

I am going to watch some more TRL and stay out of the mosh pit. I’ll only get myself hurt. I’m a lamer. A RUSTY BOLT, in the metal world. A poser. A -real- metal head would kick my ass.

See Ska and Emo above 🙂

I am 28% Tortured Artist

I have some artistic ability, but it is probably a hobby and doesn’t drive my life into a dark abysmal hole were I am alone and against the world.

Well, I would personally doubt the “I have some artistic ability” but it depends on what you call art. Let’s face it Tracey Emin was favourite to win the 1999 Turner Prize with her piece “My Bed” (described by BBC News as “…her mattress surrounded by the detritus created after a week of being bedridden”. Steve McQueen ended up winning the 1999 Turner Prize BTW…
