What Kind Of Nerd Are You?


Recommended Posts

It's nice to come across all the things I have in common among people around here, like this:

 

But I'm different from him in that I'm an only child so I'm used to being on my own and learned to enertain myself growing up to point I actually enjoy being by myself more often than being with other people.

 

Tensor - there are no class divides in science!

 

The stories of Sursonica's and Tensor's hair-related ID issues are thoroughly enjoyable. ;)

 

Lissie - you certainly sound like a nerd. I would say even an overwhelming passion for reading can be classified as nerdiness of a kind, even if it's not specifically science or comic-books.

I have a mix of the TBBT character´s characteristics: + I have my spot in the living room and when I have guest in the house and I am forced to give my spot to someone then I become crazy (even I am

I guess a lot of posters have seen that I'm kinda, sorta into numbers and statistics(Nate Silver is one of my heroes).   I also really like, and somewhat understand Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.  

Camouflage, for infiltration. Really, if you are medically retired, you can dress any way you want. Along with letting your hair and beard grow. Having a bike doesn't hurt either. But hell, Dr.

I have a question, guys:

Is a BOOKWORM ( not in math/science/chemistry, but in literature/history/biography/religions/cultures) a NERD too?

 

 

Hey, I'd say that's a bit nerdy. LOL. Nothing wrong with it either. I wish I read more, in fact.

Sounds like a nerd to me. :) My oldest daughter is obsessed with Victoria lit. Her thesis was on the Brontes. And she's a nerd.

Medically Retired DOES have some advantages. After being released from a 5 months of being in the hospital, I started growing a "rat tail".

This was more than 5 years ago. People are surprised when they first see it (I normally keep it tucked inside my shirt), as I am a "clean cut" type of guy.

I am a big nerd. I love science, physics, astrophysics, chemistryand meterology are my favorites. I also love science fiction movies (see my blog below). Huge Star Trek fan and Godzilla fan. I also love Star Wars, Lord of the Rings oh I could go on and on...I have over 700 DVDs in my collection with many of them being science fiction oriented. I also love superhero movies but I don't read the comic books any more.

 

I also love European history and I am really into European Royalty. I have a blog for that also. I am also a musician and artist. My avatar is a picture I drew.

But, is David Underhill a nerd. Riding a cool bike is not as nerdy as riding a scooter like Howard Wolowitz!!

This has been very interesting to read! It's nice to see so many people that I can relate to!

 

Above all I'm very into video games and have especially been a crazy nerd for all things Nintendo for as long as I can remember. Love Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings and have watched a fair amount of Star Trek (though wouldn't call myself nerdy for it.). I also love Superhero movies and comics. As far as science goes, Biology is currently what I'm studying in college and has always massively interested me so it's hopefully the path I'll be going down in the future :D.

 

Appearance wise, yeah, I probably don't pay much more attention to myself than Amy does to herself :p. I only really bother with make-up and dresses when I go out.

I'm a nerd since I've been a kid.

I LOVED Star Trek:TNG. Data was my fav character. He wanted to fit in. I really attached to that.

I am also a big tv, cartoon, music and movie nerd. I know a bunch of facts about them and can remember crap.

When I get into something I'm really into it.

Now it's TBBT.

I tried for years to deny my nerdiness and be cool. For a few years. I was in the bad crowd. Drinking, partying....Too much

TBBT has helped me come back to my roots and calm down.

So happy I did. Now my family tell me I'm nerdy, my co workers think I'm nerdy.

I'm so glad I'm a nerd. :)

Well, for me that's a difficult question. Way back when I was in school, I was a nerd in the sense that I was in the top-2 percent of my class, averaging above a 96 in all classes. I was also in what my school called the accelerated class. When I took the then standard IQ test, I scored 2-points below the genius level (probably because of a few questions where I 2nd guessed myself). That said, the people I hung out with were definitely not the nerds. My crowd was considered the trouble makers, pot-heads & outcasts (at least later on). I was a nerd in that I was the kid who was really into stuff like Star Wars and listening to Kiss & bands like that. Beyond that, I was & still am a video game geek (especially RPGs), and I still have yet to be even remotely challenged at Star Wars trivia. I probably could have easily gone the total nerd route, but as it turns out, I'm just a typical 47-year old who plays video games & knows a lot about Star Wars & Kiss.

When I was teenager sometimes I used to watch those American films from the 80s where the nerds are mistreated and the conclusion is that to be a nerd means to be stupid :( Then I was sad with myself and my lack of friends, parties, etc. Now with TBBT I feel proud of being a nerd :) Thanks TBBT!

I AM THE KING OF NERDS EVERYTHING I DO IS GEEKY (WELL ON THE INSIDE). But yeah man you know the big bang theory show inspired me to pursue my love of science and

learn new things like scientific math and i am only 13. Besides i've been getting a lot of attention from girls lately, if you know what i mean ;)

I would say that I am a video game nerd. I don't really have a passion for other video games other than shooters but it's definitely something. And over the past few weeks I have been getting into comic books. I was never into them and I decided to check them out and needless to say; I am hooked!
