You are 50% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

I wonder what our bastard lovechild would be like as a 100% or 0% geek.

Wow, less than half geek. Still gives me the geek liason bit. I wonder how many different categories they made.

i am still another 50% geek...

...I think it's like the purity test; there's a point of
diminishing returns, and you have to be truly deprived
in certain areas of life to fall below a certain point.

e.g., without having a wealth of homoerotic/homosexual/
bisexual experience, it is difficult to fall too far
below 45% or 50% on the purity test; similarly, without
absolutely starving oneself from modern television, music
or lust for attractive women, it is difficult to rise too
far above 50% or 60% on this test.

That's my story, anyway, and I'm sticking to it. ; )

OK. There is such a thing as too much geekness. I suspect you're spending far too much time with the boys or girls of the Internet. The closer your score is to 100%, the closer you are to going right out the other side and being a nerd. Geeks rule. Where geeks are socially-inept, nerds are socially incompetent. Not even geeks can take nerds. So let's be careful, huh? Watch a little TV, maybe listen to some popular radio, read a little Stephen King, anything to ensure you can communicate with the 99.44% of the population that isn't all that concerned with the minutia of whatever it is you happen to be geeky about. It's OK to be a geek, but go much further and you'll be a genuine bore.

You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough. Dating tip: Don't date a geek of the same persuasion as you. You'll constantly try to out-geek the other.
