Which Nerdy Sidekick Are You?

You got: C-3PO

You're the brains behind the battle. You're not someone to rush into a fight guns blazing; you're a strategic thinker who prefers a behind-the-scenes role. But you're also a loyal friend who's always willing to lend a hand, even if that means giving up your usual role as diplomat. You're big into using your extreme smarts for good — and you can do it in over six million forms of communication. Fluently.

You got: Dr. Egon Spengler

You're the quiet, brilliant member of your small, tight-knit group of friends. People come to you when they need sound advice, a good listener, and any information on spores, molds, and fungus. You're a master of deadpan humor, and your best comebacks are usually what you mutter under your breath when no one is listening. Behind that calm demeanor, you're passionate and tenacious, and once you decide on a goal, you won't stop until you achieve it. Most importantly, you are a firm believer in never crossing the streams.

You got: Beaker

You're the clown of your friend group. Yes, you can easily rattle off most of the periodic table abbreviations, but you're more than just smart — you know how to use your smarts for fun. You're always down for an exciting new adventure, even if it runs the risk of serious injury. You're the funny nerd everyone wants at the party, and you know exactly how to toe the line between intelligent and approachable. You're meepin' awesome.

You got: Wash

You're the moral rock of your social circle. You're usually on the fringes of the crowd, throwing in the wittiest one-liners and dodging group politics. You're the first person to figure out how to solve a sticky situation, but you never use your smarts for attention. You're all about the greater good, keeping the people close to you safe, and keeping things positive. Also, you rock a Hawaiian shirt like no other.

You got: Dwight Schrute

You try to mask your smarts with eccentricities, but you're secretly as loyal and clever as you are weird. You're a hard worker who loves to keep people guessing, and you thrive in competitive settings. You have a strangely magnetic humor, and your genuine quirkiness draws people to you. The people closest to you know you have a heart of gold and you'd never abandon a friend in need.

You got: Neville Longbottom

You're the epitome of sidekick-turned-hero. You're always a brave, trustworthy friend, and you never actively seek the spotlight — you're more comfortable playing second fiddle. But when it comes to stopping injustice, you have no problem taking the lead. You hold yourself to a high moral code, and behind your adorable, dorky demeanor, you're a scrappy fighter who'd sacrifice everything for your loved ones.

You got: Dr. John Watson

You're the most reliable and trustworthy of friends. You have high emotional intelligence and your natural intuition makes you a wiz in social settings. You try to hide your bolder nature for propriety's sake, but you're also highly competitive, and you thrive in high-stress situations. You crave intellectual stimulation, and you're a tried and true adventurer.

You got: Fogell

YOU ARE MCLOVIN. You're the epitome of a cool geek. You talk a big game, but you definitely have the brain to back it up. You're an extrovert who thrives in crowds, shines in the spotlight, and would like to be remembered, above all, as the coolest of cats. You value social power, and people are naturally drawn to your earnestly eccentric personality. When your bravado is turned off, you're a highly intelligent and loyal friend, and you're always down for a crazy night out.

You got: Spock

You are the most beloved of all the nerdy sidekicks. When it comes to solving a problem with concrete logic, you're an unrivaled genius. But you prefer to avoid the stickier emotional problems. While you'd ideally like to hide behind cold and simple common sense, when you're pushed outside your boundaries, you truly thrive. Beneath all those theories about the importance of emotional stoicism, you're a deeply loyal and compassionate friend, who would sacrifice everything — including your own life — for the people you (gulp) love.

You got: Willow Rosenberg

You are the most adorkable of them all. You're as dependable and loyal as they come, and when your friends are in a tough spot, you're the first person they turn to. You're the master of awkward one-liners, and smart as a whip. You avoid the spotlight at all costs and hate conflict, but brewing beneath all that sweet and hilarious charm is some seriously raw power. When provoked, you can be as fearsome an enemy, as you are a trustworthy protector.

You got: Q

You're the coolest of tech gurus. Yes, you've usually got a screen in front of you, and you prefer the company of computers to people, but you're also quick-witted and charismatic. You're a natural introvert who prefers to avoid the limelight, and you usually choose not to get involved in group politics. But you're also an incredibly intuitive person who's a step ahead of the crowd, and that makes you a strong ally and a dangerous enemy.
