And the winner is...

There has been a flurry of geek/nerd/dorkness on the blogs in the past few days. But I always knew I had the trump card. Yeah, yeah, my own results are nothing too special. But I married someone I knew would blow the lid off the test. The trick was getting him to take it. I couldn't ask him. As you will see from his profile, asking him would be tantamount to forbidding a normal person. Nope, I had to be sneaky and not. say. anything. (Do you have any idea how hard that was for me?) In case you might think the results were intentional or skewed, let me preface this by saying that my spouse is the only one to ever get a Dungeons and Dragons scholarship *from TSR* to college...

And Dave's results are:

Outcast Genius
65 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 56% 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 occassion (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.

Congratulations!

My guess is that this is how my husband would test, but I'll have to try and get him to take it too!

Profile? Does that mean that he has a blog here, somewhere?
