I am a nerd. First of all, geeks are NOT nerds. They are people who often like video games or comics ect. but don't possess the intellect to be considered a nerd. Nerds are often given a bad name because of geeks that are mistaken for nerds.

Some things to know about nerds

1. Some nerds have a social life, we are not all social failures.

2. Nerds are not always ugly, we generally look normal, we only look "nerdy" in movies.

3. We are unfortunately generally not athletic, but they does not mean we're fat or weak. We are usually just uncoordinated. (Note: some nerds are athletic.)

4. Not all nerds study, we just retain information when we learn it.

5. We don't necessarily love all subjects (I do, but that's a bad example)

6. Nerd is considered to be a derogatory term, but nerds usually do better in life than jocks.

7. Most nerds love learning simply because its interesting.
The nerds you make fun of for liking school will be the doctors, engineers, and inventors of tomorrow. (For all you dumb jocks out there, those are people with the cushy jobs)

Think: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates

A studious and smart person who gets made fun of by haters. Nerds are not necessarily the 1960's stereo type with bottle cap glasses, suspenders, button shirts with pens in a shirt pocket, ect. Some nerds are good looking, some are smart, and some are both. Nerds are academicly advanced. However, most nerds are still socially challenged. Nerds are loners. :)

A nerd is basically a person who has a higher understanding of things than most regular people.Do not confuse them with dorks or geeks. Nowadays everyone believes that they must be the same as everyone else to be accepted.Nerds are able to oversee this and become successful in life unlike the jocks,skaters, or cool kids. Nerds are the same as everyone else and are not superior to anyone but thanks to the mainstream people believe that nerds are social rejects. A nerd has a 8 out of 10 chance of becoming successful while the jock has a 2 out 10 chance of being successful.
Bill Gates - One of the richest men in the world and biggest nerds
Steve Jobs - One of the founders of Apple or in other words the dude who made the iPod your listening to right now.
Will Wright - Video Game designer of popular games like the sims and spore.

Guys with IQ higher than your weight. You made fun of them when you were at school but you would be lucky if you get employed as janitors in their businesses.
I am nerd and proud of it.

A nerd is someone who does better in school than his/her classmates and wear stylish clothes. Nerds are prosecuted for their superior intellect. 99.9% of nerds are social even though they are not ecpected to. To be a nerd you have to be smart and stylish. If you wear outmoded clothes and you're smart than you're a neek, which grow up to be at least middle class nerds. Nerds are awsome. Do not get phy sical with a nerd from bedstuy or the south side. Nerds are also funny and some are popular. Some nerds look like regular people.
Dummies:Ha ha ha!
Nerd:At least I'm smart and well dressed.
