Are You a Geek or a Nerd – Infographic [TDIS]

GeekVsNerdIf you are someone who reads a lot of books, follows technology, knows about different operating systems and enjoy watching sci-fi movies or TV series, then chances are you have either been called a ‘geek’ or a ‘nerd’.

I have always found both terms quite similar except that being called a ‘geek’ was cooler than being called a ‘nerd’. 🙂

Here is a nice infographic by Masters in IT, that tries to define the difference between a ‘Geek’ and ‘Nerd’.

It does so by some interesting differences in tastes and professions chosen by people who are called one of the two terms.


Thanks to R@xit for the tip.

So what are you? A geek or a nerd? Do drop in your comments.
