    Don't burn me down , but i always thought of geeks as having the sterotypical image and also being very dedicated to education. Probably being more of a recluse and not as outgoing?
    But nowadays , pretty much anyone can be deemed as a nerd , geek etc.

    Nerd = learning by creating things and involving yourself. Geek = reading excessively/memorabilia/trivia?

    I'd classify myself as a "geek" according to stereotypes.
    "Nerds" are usually seen as people who are super smart, have no social life etc (stereotypes, not my opinion). And geeks would be someone who has a huge passion for something.
    There are different types of geeks yo.


    From this I would say I'm a:
    - Computer/Tech geek
    - Book geek
    - Comic book geek
    - Otaku geek
    - Video game geek
    - and Design geek
