Mostly A’s: You’re an Amy-Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory. You’re a serious brainiac who isn’t afraid to let her geek flag fly! You manage to both an awesome scholar and an awesome friend! Congratulations!
Mostly B’s: You’re a Pam Halpert from The Office. You’re the quiet/shy girl who embraces her geekiness, but also embraces the mainstream. You’re traditional and sweet like Pam, and you can take (and tell) a good joke from time to time.
Mostly C’s: You’re an April Ludgate from Parks and Recreation. You’re definitely the bright, sarcastic girl who does NOT go with the flow. You’re smart and you know it, but you usually like to hang out in the background and not draw too much attention to yourself.
Mostly D’s: You’re an Annie Edison from Community. You believe organization is the key to life, and you have no shame about the rituals you conduct to make your life as efficient as possible. You’re very driven and motivated—others often look to you for help, and because you’re so together, you can usually provide it!
Mostly E’s: You’re a Jess Day from New Girl. Okay, so maybe you don’t wanna be called adorkable, but you’re quirky and open-minded, which is a great combination! Your geekiness comes from these things, as well as the wee bit of whimsy you possess.
