Hello. I'm conducting a survey and YOU can be a part of it. This survey covers the topic of the social and societal role of those who might be titled a "geek" or "nerd." Please answer any or all of the following questions, and please feel free to expand and discuss. 1. How old are you? 2. Would you consider yourself a "geek" or "nerd?" Why or why not? 3. What do you think of other "geeks" or "nerds?" 4. Do you think that these social stereotypes are accurate? 5. Do you think certain social stereotypes (geeks, jocks, yuppies, intellectuals, hippies, etc) are better or more veridical than others? Why or why not? 6. If you could change the societal role of the geek or nerd, or you could change people's perception of these stereotypes, what would you change? Thanks a lot! Your time is appreciated.

goldingds 1. How old are you?

22

2. Would you consider yourself a "geek" or "nerd?" Why or why not?

Nope

3. What do you think of other "geeks" or "nerds?"

I think people should let them be what they want to be.

4. Do you think that these social stereotypes are accurate?

They came from somewhere, they are probably partially accurate, but they are also stereotypes which makes them iffy.

5. Do you think certain social stereotypes (geeks, jocks, yuppies, intellectuals, hippies, etc) are better or more veridical than others? Why or why not?

They all have their truths and half-truths, etc.

6. If you could change the societal role of the geek or nerd, or you could change people's perception of these stereotypes, what would you change?

Hmmm, I'd change people's perceptions. No one should be looked down upon.

Please answer any or all of the following questions, and please feel free to expand and discuss. 1. How old are you?15 2. Would you consider yourself a "geek" or "nerd?" Why or why not? No. And No Comment 3. What do you think of other "geeks" or "nerds?" Just because you know more than others doesnt mean you need a label 4. Do you think that these social stereotypes are accurate? AS I said in the topic above 5. Do you think certain social stereotypes (geeks, jocks, yuppies, intellectuals, hippies, etc) are better or more veridical than others? Why or why not?I think the people who use these labels have an insecurity problem about them selves. 6. If you could change the societal role of the geek or nerd, or you could change people's perception of these stereotypes, what would you change? I would get rid of them... Thanks a lot! Your time is appreciated.

As I answered in bold...thats my opinion

Everyone in here is going to say they aren't a nerd, that is obvious.
