I sometimes reflect upon what a nerd is as compared to a geek. I have always referred to myself as a nerd since I used to identify with the “nerd” characters in movies. But on my journey of inner-reflection and self-discovery I recognize both nerdy and geeky characteristics, as defined by other geeks and nerds on the Internet.
So I found this great diagram online that defines various types including nerds, geeks, and even dorks and dweebs.
Turns out, nerds are at the center of it all! Now I used to be more socially inept but I’m a well adjusted grownup now. And I realize that I may jump back and forth across the nerd/geek border from time to time. But my loyalty lies with the Nerd Union!
So tell me, are you a nerd? A geek? Other?
