Geek vs. Nerd: Which Are You?

 

The Geeks vs. Nerds head-to-head smack-down comes to us from MastersInIT.org

In the ongoing battle between geek and nerd, one must take sides, but how can this be done without a solid argument for both personas? We here at Masters In IT (a mix of nerds and geeks) decided that it’s time to lay all the cards on the table to determine which is better and answer the question some fear to know: Are you a geek, or a nerd?

A little text-heavy and lighter fare than I normally post, but this one is just fun to read through.  There are a handful of stats included, and the doughnut charts and bar charts are easy to understand.

Like many of the infographics I’ve posted lately, it’s missing a URL at the bottom for readers to find the original post, a copyright statement and listing the designer!

Thanks to Gerri for sending in the link!  Also found on Infographic Journal, Daily Infographic.

Everything is very clearly and widely

This is stupid, if a geek can be confused with a hipster, geek doesn't mean anything anymore

How do you print this? The image gets chopped off.

The Mac vs PC is ridiculous... I don't think this can differentiate geek vs nerds as much as it would identify hipsters. This shows 65% of video game designers identify themselves as geeks, yet I don't think this can be easily accomplished with Macs...

Lighter fare indeed. I agree there's a difference, but I disagree that this graphic points it out.

Looks like they've addressed the hipster criticism: http://www.becomecareer.com/geeks-hipsters/
