Geek hierarchy

As a movie translator, I always had problems with finding the Czech equivalent of the word "geek", often having to resort to "obsessed" or "crazy" or other "cheap way out". I was unable to explain to non-English-speaking people what is the exact meaning of this word. Now, at last, I found this handy chart of geek hiearchy which explains lots of things. Also, I am now sure I conform to at least a dozen of geek stereotypes.

Bummer, I thought it is going to be something actually useful... One thing I don't get about this scheme is where is the top... The most recognized are at the top or bottom?

A co třeba pošuk, to je takové pěkné české slovíčko.
