I'm rather curious because I don't consider myself a nerd, I'm more of a dork... However in your opinion what do you consider to be a nerd?

Geek, Dork, and Nerd are all the same to me. In my mind a nerd/dork/geek is someone who knows a lot about a certain subject or is overly smart... But honestly I don't really have my own definition of nerd/dork/geek.

I duno, I'm quite intelligent, however I can't tell you who the 11th Doctor is, I'm not really socially inept, however I do have my moments of "hermitism"

In all honesty I have traits of a bit of everything, it really depends on my state of mind!!!

I am quite socially inept, I am quite intelligent, I also have my fair share of obsessions.

It's kinda funny because I used to be the same. I used to prefer the company of my playstation to that of social interactions with actual people. I used to be obsessed with Shawn Michaels (WWE Wrestler)

Something changed when I went to college thought.... It's as if I've transformed into the complete opposite....
funny.... I became confident, gained some life experiences....

The only thing I've retained over the years is my intelligence, however that's slowly diminishing simply because I smoke too much weed LOL

I've always thought they were synonymous. Then again, that could be because by that venn diagram, I'd be considered a dweeb and I don't really like the word. :P

There is no earthly way this could have been answered better than with a Venn diagram.
Flawless victory.

What about a scale? I always thought of nerdom as more of a scale from 0 - 1 or something. But then there are so many branches it wouldn't work.

From zero to one?
Is that a binary joke? :lol:

I remember that old quote. There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who do not.

Well if I had to break it down

Nerd: 4
Geek: 3
Dork: 8
Obsession: 4
Dweeb: 2
Social Ineptitude: Before Girlfriend: 7 After Girlfriend: 3
Intelligence: 7

According to that chart, I'm just obsessed (but I like to let people think I'm a geek). Apparently.
