A window into the life of a professional geek, wife and mother (and nonni), stitcher/designer, bibliophile, old-school gamer, and whatever other roles she finds herself in.

Thanks to a friendly weather goddess, I found a The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test. And the verdict is....

Outcast Genius
69 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 69% 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.
How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 64% on nerdiness
You scored higher than 84% on geekosity
You scored higher than 99% on dork points

Um...okay. I'm not particularly happy about the comparison to Bill Gates, but I guess the rest of it fits, somehow. And I've already determined that the Web seems to feel I have missed my calling as an evil genius.

Outcast genius...evil genius.... I'm not sure I really *want* to achieve world domination, though. You know how much work that would be??
