"Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.” --JG

Love learning science. Math was my favorite subject in high school. Play video games. Used to play magic the gathering. No tabletop DnD though. Thats where I draw the line. All in all yes.

Nerd = No
Geek = Yes - I like to say that most people are geeky in some way.

I was a nerd in high school. A nerd, turned bully. Now I'm just me. A good friend of mine is a nerd, but he's so sweet. I don't know why nerds get such a bad rep though.

I work in electronics. I read books constantly. I watch documentaries in my spare time. Science channel is my most watched channel. I love music and weird obscure movies. also i played d&d in high school. The only thing I'm not a nerd about is scifi stuff.

I don't there's any such thing. I don't assign any weight to how mainstream your interests are and smart people don't put labels on themselves. So, no, not a nerd.

Nerd and geek and egghead can be seen almost a compliants to some not quite the same with wonk

Geeks are social, and simply obsess on fundamentally interesting things. Am example is a top barista, or the guy who owns the coolest vinyl shop in town.

I am also in pretty good shape. I love jiu jitsu and train on a regular basis. I also love football. I can't watch or play it enough. I help my nephew practice football a few times a week. My two dream jobs would be football coach and jiu jitsu instructor.

Well, lets see.. I am a huge introvert, sometimes I'm a bit socially awkward, I spend a lot of time alone on the computer, listening to music etc., I always get As and Bs in school and I play the cello. I don't know, am I a nerd?
