A synonym of dork, an individual characterized by marked passion in a niche interest area coupled with a quirky demeanor. Dorkwis often connotes increased dork-character compared to that of a non-wis dork. The origins of dorkwis likely stem from the obsolete suffix wis, meaning certainly or firmly (webster's unabridged, obs.).
