Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

I am, apparently, an "Outcast Genius." This quiz courtesy of Suze's blog. Visit Suze for your fabulous Canadian content today!

So, which one are you? Nerd, geek, or dork?

This test tracked 3 variables. Here's how I compared to other people my age and gender:
Outcast Genius
78 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 60% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occasion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Now, here's the weird thing - I took a different "nerd test" today off a link on AJ Gentile's blog, and, oddly enough, I scored a nerd rating of 83. That's means I'm 2 for 2 on the "above 82% nerd" ratings. Scary.

Hmmm....I took the same test a few days ago, and I'm an Outcast Genius, too. I was 69% Nerd, 56% Geek, and 52% Dork. I scored higher than 65% on nerdiness, higher than 73% on geekosity, and higher than 85% on dork points. (That last one scares me a little.)

wow. outcast genious. that puts my 100% pure nerd to shame....

although when i took aj's test, i was only 50% nerd.

so, on average, i'm still 75% nerd. i wear the honour proudly ;)

Am I an outcast here? Here are my results:

Joe Normal
43 % Nerd, 34% Geek, 30% Dork
For The Record:

You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

I'd say there's a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

Clearly, sir, you are a mutant. There is no other possible explanation.

I concur. Mutant he is.
