Define nerd.
Some say you're a nerd when you're into Starcraft, star wars, video games etc. in that sense I'm not a nerd. But I am a nerd in the academic sense. I love math and science. I enjoy playing and listening classical music and reading classic novels. So yes, I do consider myself a nerd.

I'm an actual nerd and to me nothing is worse than when people slap on a pair of glasses and then post 300 pictures on Facebook that are all captioned "lulz im such a nerd." It's so annoying that being a nerd is popular now.

More of a dork but I think I fit the category fairly well.

I've been called a nerd since it was derogatory. The people who called me a nerd now want to call themselves one as well...they are not nerds.

It's not half the general population, it's half the population of users of a pretty nerdy app. I mean, the main attractions here are stats and charts.

The word has deprecated just like a bunch of other labels. I think it's a mistake to label oneself. Most people probably aren't nerds. No, they are hipsters. They think they are nerds because it is the new novelty.

My family and some of my friends say I am but I've never thought of myself as one. At least not the stereotypical nerd. I graduated top of my class in high school but I spent my weekends partying and not studying that much. I did it last minute.

I think I'm more of a geek. Nerds to me are the book-smart people. Geeks are the techies, anime-lovers, and possibly slight gamers.

No, I identify much more as a geek than as a nerd.

Yes. My favorites by far had been Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Tsuritama.

My husband has over 1000 series of Anime ( well it seems like that many ) and he reads a lot of Manga. Although I'm not into it as much as he is, I like Anime.

It seems like being a nerd doesn't hold the bad rap that it did when I was younger. I'm not sure if its because I'm older or perhaps it's just more trendy... as funny as that seems.

It's kinda amusing. The democrat and republican votes are opposite of what I thought they would be.

If you fail all those, does it mean you *are* a nerd? Because I fail all but hopefully #4. I'd like to think my friends & family look forward to seeing me. Otherwise, I might as well not get on that plane in 11 days but just stay home & play Angry Birds.

JD - what I do from time to time, is go back to the oldest polls and tally up the number of votes. I usually check about 3.

I see most of those as likely symptoms rather than the defining factors. The defining factor would be the person in question places a very high priority on understanding some non-social subject to the point that all (or some of) the social stuff doesn't quite work for them.

I think everyone is a nerd, a little bit. And if you aren't, you are probably very uninteresting and a pain to be around.

What is not a nerd:
1) someone with social skills
2) someone with athletic ability
3) someone with a nice tan
4) someone you look forward to seeing
5) someone who is fashionable

Not any more. Pocket protectors served two functions. First, it guarded your pocket from accidental ink spills. Second, it provided sufficient rigidity to your pocket to support multiple pens. Now nerds just need a belt holster for their smartphone with Evernote.
