[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]When looking up what defines being ‘a nerd’, I found it to be people who are smarter than average, obsessive, or socially impaired. They make it sound like some sort of condition or disease, giving characteristics that identify a person as being a nerd. Nerds are characterized as being shy, quirky, and unattractive.[/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]I find this to be stereotypical, because I know many people who are smarter than the average and they would be considered beautiful and tend to be outgoing. I admit I am shy and quirky, which would make me a nerd, but it doesn’t bother me to be considered as such, because words are words. They only give the holder power if you let them.[/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Since being a nerd is described as obsessive, I would say that everyone is a nerd then, because everyone is obsessive about something or someone at some point in their life. People change and so do some of their interests, due to a decrease in the popularity of that thing or person they once obsessed over. Just like everything else in today’s society, many people tend to follow the crowd and whatever the next big thing is.[/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Nerds are also described as immature because they continue to watch television programs movies or have trading cards and comic books, past their childhood. This would then aid in my suggestion earlier about everyone being a nerd, because depending on what you consider to be immature, we all are.[/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Thank you![/font]
