    Youíre a major music nerd, and most people in your life consider you to be an expert. Youíre very committed, but thereís some lines you donít cross.

    14/100 boys! Let's see someone go LOWER!

    For me music is something I engage to give my constantly "reflecting" and "introspective" self a freaking break. I rarely hear any lyrics unless I make an EFFORT to, because that's too LEFT brain for what I'm looking for. And I could care less about music journalism and band histories...just more DATA to process in an already log-jammed brain.

    I listen to a HUGE variety of things, and my education has sensitized me to accepting most things as long as they are reasonable and not damaging.

    So many different people, so many different ways of hearing: how could anyone be a SNOB? The only points I generated concerned quality of gear. After all, you do want to hear what you're listening to with some "quality". But there weren't that many questions about THAT in this test!

    Of course if you're a Vinyl fanboy then you're going to score higher. But not necessarily three of four times higher. You can be into vinyl and not be snobbish about it.

    Enjoy the music; it's all around you!

    I wanted to be higher but 19 it is. I suck at being an audio snob.

    39 for me

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    Excellent!! Right where I want to be!

    You checked off 4 out of 100 on this list!

    There is no doubt that you’re waaaay into music, but you’re not TOTALLY intense about it. Like, you probably have other interests and a well-rounded life. There’s no shame in that!

    Scored a 5.

    Received the same comment as cfrizz.

    On the good side, I now have proof that I really should go no where near the rabbit hole.

    Like John, I ended up finding it. Not too sure about the results though. Here's what I got...

    You checked off 37 out of 100 on this list! Youíre a major music nerd, and most people in your life consider you to be an expert. Youíre very committed, but thereís some lines you donít cross.

    I don't think I would consider myself a major music nerd. Lightman1 or most DEFINITELY George Daniels perhaps but my music knowledge is dwarfed exponentially by these two guys. In fact, Russ (Lightman1) is my "go-to" guy when I'm listening to a song and I have no clue who it is. 98% of the time he knows who it is and off of what album off the top of his head. To me, that's a major music nerd and I'm still in romper room comparatively speaking to these two cats. I'd be elated to have even 10% of the knowledge these two gentlemen have. I laugh at the expert comment provided. Knowledgeable perhaps, expert? I think not. More like somewhat of an advanced novice IMO.

    I do agree with not crossing certain lines. They nailed that one spot on.
