I hate these kinds of questions because why do we need to be put in classes? Why cant people accept that fact that human beings are multidimensional?

Hmm i guess i am in some ways;
I wear glasses, I dont have a girlfriend, i watch anime, i play video games(both single player and multi player), i am in a gaming clan, i have played games competitively, i used to go to LAN's a fair bit, i occasionally go to arcade and pinball lock ins, i have anime wall scrolls up around the house (and an anime callander, clock and i have a collection of anime figurines and mugs, a collection of hentai, etc), i go to anime and video game conventions, i have friends i met on line that i have known for years and only met once or twice or never, etc

But, i was not a geek or a nerd in school and growing up, i love hip hop and have a massive hip hop collection, go to hip hop concerts,i used to play sport, used to be popular with girls, always had lots of friends, i love sport (cricket and football), i love playing pool and used to play competitively, i like time alone but i also socialize quite a lot, used to go out alot and to parties alot, etc

But i think that alot of these are only considered geeky/nerdy or non geeky nerdy to some and not as much these days and its a matter of opinion?

Same. I don't really know enough about most things to be considered a nerd or a geek.

Not really. Everything I do, I do in moderation. Every of my activities could be replaced by a new one.

B-I-N-G-O

I'm a jock-nerd-geek-gamer-collector-car/beer/women-enthusiast.

I also like animals, traveling and walks along the beach.

I like many different facets of life.

Classification of humans is what gets us into trouble.

I know this thread is for fun, but it's true. These things just don't end/go well.

A geek could tell you everything that happened on the last three seasons of Game of Thrones; a nerd is the guy who DOES tell you everything that happened on the last three seasons of Thrones, whether you asked or not, just because you happened to be sitting next to him on the bus.

One is social inexperience, the other is acquired technical experience...Geek and proud.


He just contradicted himself, too, by giving out definitions no one asked for while self identifying with his definition of a "geek".

What a nerd.


The point is that one of the two achieves utter social failure by trying to pursue it in dreams of popularity:
Steve Wozniak, for example, may be a "geek", but Bill Gates defines "nerd".

(Or, in political terms, Al Gore is a "geek", but Mitt Romney is a "nerd".)

If you're a fan of anything, if you find anything enjoyable you're a geek? Well then we all are. I don't go by any of those labels, nor do people refer to me with those labels. I am me.

Nerd/Geek, I'm a gamer who can only make really good conversation when the convo is about games, or anime, but also I get out and do stuff a lot.

(Or to put it in its absolutely simplest terms, in Ghostbusters, Dr. Spengler was a "geek", and Louis Tully was a "nerd".
If anyone can't figure that one out, they got problems.)

I definitely used to be a geek. Good with computers, played video games, watched anime, read fantasy novels (really bad ones).

As an adult I'm much less geeky though. I still watch anime; but my computer skills are dated, I rarely play games and I prefer to read historical nonfiction.
