I'm proud to be one.

I debated asking "Are you a nerd/geek?" but I didn't want to read 100 comments from both arguing that nerds and geeks aren't the same thing.

We nerds prefer to be called "intellectually advanced." Haha just kidding

I guess that I should add on that I have reasonable social skills, but It's kinda hard to actually make friends. I make a ton of acquaintances (and good ones too), but it's pretty rare for me to find someone deserving to be called a friend. Oh well. Maybe BMT will change that :)

I read at least a few books a month, and love video games especially strategy games like risk. I dress and act the way that pleases me without caring what others think. I am pretty good at math. My favorite show is futurama. I am into politics and economics.

Nerd & Geek hood is based on knowlege and interests. It's a Stereotype that you'd wear Suspenders, glasses, and a bow tie while you studder in front of a girl.

Be proud!

At least as a Comic Book and Sci Fi I find that the internet has made unique interests more acceptable. IE: ComiCon

Not a nerd. Grew up playing any and all sports but as I have gotten older and more knowledgeable I would say I am more of a tech junkie or tech geek.
Nerd=geek? Then yes???

Actually, the terminology has changed a bit. Nerd is great!

Nerd: Enjoys, Collects, Buids and understands things most do not
Geek: Enjoys, and collects things most are not interested in

These things are more in and accepted now.

I get straight A's constantly, read books non-stop and absolutely love Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, etc. And am in jazz band and band and drama club. But I also play sports year round and am not socially awkward. And dont dress nerdy. What does that make me?? Lol.

Nerd is the derogatory term, of course, for a person who enjoys learning. Without this type of person, society would stagnate. Not all nerds are good, military nerds are a glaring exception, but nerdom is what separates us from the monkeys, gw bush, and the jersey shore.

When I was in elementary and middle school, I was in the gifted classes and was a spelling bee champion. I think I was a nerd. But, when I got to junior high and high school, I became involved in football and track. I still made good grades, but became much more of an extrovert.

Do you get straight A's in school? Are you socially awkward around the opposite sex? Wear pocket protectors in your shirt pocket? Wear glasses? Love math or science?

I HATE those things. Lol I identify as a nerd because I soak up knowledge like a sponge and really like electronics. But that doesn't mean that I dress like a stereotypical one unless I'm being silly.

Absolutely! My gifted class and I get upset if we get anything under about a 95, depending on whatever it is. Hey, at least I don't fail just about every class I have like the other kids in my school

A geek is someone who is good with technology or plays video games. A nerd is someone who is smart and dedicated to their studies. I guess you could be both.
