How Geeky
Are You?

Do you know your Hubble from your Hubba Bubba? Do you think a transistor is a female Transformer? Find out if you’re a top techie or leading Luddite.

You’ll be shown something, then have to choose the description you first thought of. Answer honestly and pick what really came into your head or you'll never know your true score, right?

Your final geek rating is:

  1. Oh dear, even an automatic door is probably a technical trauma. Keep your fingers crossed for the invention of a time machine so you can leave this terrible world and live in simpler times.
  2. It’s all a little bewildering, isn’t it? Never mind, that nice geeky person down the road won’t mind at all when you ask them to get the viruses off your laptop for the tenth time this year.
  3. You’re just “meh” with technology. One minute smugly downloading a cool new smartphone app to show off, the next staring in despair at the Microsoft Word help system to write a simple letter.
  4. You’re a bit of a plugged-in, music-streaming, cloud-syncing techie. Maybe you even recompiled a kernel once and actually knew what it meant. Or maybe when things get tricky you bluff a little.
  5. Smartypants! Why are you mucking about with stupid personality quizzes instead of solving the world’s energy problems and genetically engineering flies that can find their way around windows?
