Top 5 Stereotypes Given For Nerds!

May 1, 2017

by — Posted in Entrepreneurs, Introductory, People, Tech



Currently, I am reading a fantastic book called Ready Player One. It’s a nerdy book about a man named Wade Watts who lives in the year 2021 where mass poverty and famine is common. Everyday he constantly uses his VR headset to go to school and go on his famous quest of finding the “egg”. The egg grants the player who finds it “1.8?” billion dollars and control of the whole system OASIS, which is the system used to make the VR world. To find this egg, you have to travel back to the 80’s and solve tons of puzzles and riddle all based around nerdy games.


Just A Thought?

That was a super long introduction, but this book made me think. What stereotypes are commonly given to nerds? Let’s get into the top ten and we’ll find out!

Man giving a thumbs up


#5. Lack of Communication


Many people classify nerds as “hobbits”, the ones who don’t communicate with others. Granted, that’s IRL, excuse me, I mean in real life. Many nerds hide behind a screen and become SUPER vocal towards everyone else in the world. When your behind a screen no one can hurt you, but also people feel more at home when talking through a computer. Many people nowadays text as a replacement for human interaction or communication. I sometimes fall down that hole myself. Not only is there more speech involved behind a screen, there is countless amounts of toxicity as well. That’s no surprise there though, just look at a Youtube video then scroll down.

#4. Nerds Excel In Academics


Here is where a fine line is drawn. There is a distinct difference between Nerds and Geeks. There are similarities, but there are WAY more differences. Geeks excel in things outside of academics while nerds generally do both. Geeks are like an all in one package while nerds are just one feature. Nerds and Geeks do well in school, but typically nerds are that way. Nerds focus more on real world instances than school, but still excel no matter what, a perfect example is Steve Jobs even though he’s a mix of both.

Geeks have more social skills than Nerds and they also have knowledge and technical ability. Nerds generally have little social skills, but can kick butt in technical ability against a geek. Geeks dabble, Nerds are devoted with their life.

#3. Nerds Always Wear Glasses


This is generally just stupid. In 2017 a good bit of people wear glasses and they’re not nerds. This brewed due to nerds always wearing glasses because of constant eye strain from staring at their computer screen. I hate to admit it, but I fit that stereotype perfectly. People who aren’t really that smart talk about how nerds wear glasses.


#2. Nerds Aren’t Cool


Countless amounts of people classify nerds as not being cool, but I can speak for nerds and geeks with this. Nerds and Geeks can be cool. It just depends on the person. Not only that, but nerds don’t have to be cool to be your boss. Many of those same “un-cool” nerds will be your boss and in high positions. Knowledge is power. A nerd that comes to mind for being the coolest is Steve Urkel from “Family Matters”. We all know that it’s a show, but it still doesn’t dismiss the fact that he’s a cool nerd. Just a side note, Family Matters is a good show.


#1. Nerds are Just For Games


To put it plainly, anyone can be a nerd for anything. Jocks can be nerds in football. Beauty Guru is also just another name for “makeup nerd”. Nerds of all types can be anywhere. Deep inside, everyone is a nerd for something. Instead of projecting the word as someone who is deep in technology or academics, project it as someone who is devoted or deep into anything. Nerds aren’t just gamers, nerds represent their own passion and express in large amounts. What kind of Nerd are you?
