I am into techy things, I have an iPhone, Kindle fire, Xbox 360, PSP, Gameboy, 2 computers in the house and I would have an ipad if I could afford it. I also help my co-workers fix their computers. Knowing this got me thinking, am I a Nerd or a Geek? So, I turned to Webster’s online Dictionary for some definitions.
: an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits <computer nerds>
1: a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake
2: a person often of an intellectual bent who is disliked
3: an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity <computer geek>
I do not think I qualify for the circus performer, although I can juggle lots of activities. I might be geek #2 but, no one tells me how disliked I am so not going to pick that option . I will pick #3, not an expert but, an enthusiast.
For those that know me what is your choice? How about you? Are you a nerd or a geek? Should I hit up the urban dictionary for better definitions?
