  1. I used to be around 100% nerd in my younger days; but aging helped me go more towards 75/25 geek/nerd. Geek being the greater.

  3. I think Geek and Nerd should be swapped. I think Geeks have a better 'Social Ineptitude' than Nerds. I'm a geek too btw!

  5. The first thought that came to my head is:

    "How long before someone creates a quiz that classifies people into different sections of this Venn diagram?"

    I guess that puts me somewhere in the Dork/Dweeb/Nerd conjunction point, doesn't it? :P

  7. Geek all the way. Anyone care to put forth theories about the rich and/or famous? Bill Gates = nerd… Wil Wheaton = geek…

  9. I passed from Dweeb (teenager), through Nerd (twenties), to hard core Geek (present). I am happy to say I was never a Dork.

  11. I'm a geek through and through. I've got a reasonable social life if i see to it, but i have an unhealthy obsession with pokémon. :(

  13. I am proud to say I am a Geek! As is my boyfriend. I have met loads of geeks who do have a very good level of social aptitude too, so I think this is about right.

  15. I'm totally a Geek. My husband, however, is a total Nerd (although he wishes he were a geek).

  17. I'd put myself at Geek, with forays into Nerd in certain situations (I am completely lost when it comes to socializing in a sports related situation, which is why I am spending stupid bowl Sunday watching the Evil Dead trilogy with other non-football people).

  18. Geeks are more socially inept than Nerds… find it weird that they got that wrong on this site. :S

  19. Sadly I'm none of the above? How can that be? Intelligence I have, but I'm critically short on both "Obsession" and "Social Ineptitude." Here I thought I'd finally get an answer to my age old question and as it turns out, well I'm none of the above? Now I shall have to wonder off, largely unaffected, and continue on with my day. How very odd. :) I'm old, does that count? Maybe it's a statute of limitations kind of thing? Over a certain age you just can't muster passion in two of the require three categories?

    • Maybe you do hold a bit of 'obsession'. You're are thinking out aloud and writing it on here, questioning and talking to yourself and…. stewing over it. So I would suggest you are leaning toward Intelligent with a splash of obsession. There…. you belong :)

  20. I'm a Geek, though possibly straying into nerd territory because I am occasionally not fantastic in the social department. ^_^''

  21. I am probably a nerd. But I think that I am a pretty cool one…LOL Now of course my kids would take issue with that. But I know I am a nerd, because recently one of my kids was on a trip at Google and texted me to let me know that I would love it there because it's a "Nerd's Paradise"… So there you go…
