    Are the two labels mutually exclusive? Even though being a "nerd" has some negative connotations attached to it icon_lol.gif I feel that it is hot if you can combine both. Physical and intellectual attraction at the same time. How can one ask for more?

    So do you know anyone who has both qualities? Or are you like that? What do you think?

    I'd have to say yes!

    Seems like a lot of jocks are now also into video games, which was previously the domain of nerds.

    I'm both. In high school, I was hard to pigeonhole due to that (being a "band geek" too made it even tougher!).

    I don't know about nerd, but I am the hugest dork and a jock at the same time! I've been dorky in ,many of my traits since I can remember and especially as a child.

    In high school I would sometimes go to my friend's place to play video games after rugby practice. He would call me either a 'nock' or a 'jerd' so I feel that one can be both.

    I still feel that 'nock' or 'jerd' apply to me... one cannot escape their roots both nerdy and jocklike.

    Yes, you can be a nerd and a jock. I have a bunch of friends who I would say are nerdy jocks. They are intelligent and athletic.
    A nerd does not mean someone awkward. That would be a dork.
    A jock doesn't have to be a mouth-breather.

    Video-game playing does not a nerd make. You are thinking of geek.

    Is that even a question? Anyone can be anything....

    But I did get the highest score on my A&P nursing test last week out of 120 something fellow pre-nursing students. And I named my puppy after a cartoon.

    In the colloquial sense, a nerd is a brainy person and from Ermine's definition a dork is an awkward nerd. Where does this leave a geek, and how does playing video games brand one a geek?

    (In truth, Dictionary.com gives similar definitions for all three terms, hence the question)

    The modern definitions:

    Nerd-- Into learning/trivia

    Dork-- awkward (either socially or physically)

    Geek-- Really into some (usually obscure) interest

    Freak (because it may come up)-- outsider. Doesn't fit into the societal norms



    Yes any of these can also be jocks. In the case of the jock dork, he'd be involved with some sport that doesn't take a lot of coordination.

    Yep, nerd jocks are highly sought after on the dating scene. Or so I've heard.

    Brains and brawn are the perfect comboicon_biggrin.gif

    yes you can. i knew of plenty of athletes at my school who very smart and athletic. i think its funny that you and others think that you can't be. although, you do not get a good showing of that from most of the athletes out here today. but they do exist. hell all you have to do is look at tiger woods

    I like it when people tell me I'm "nerdy chic", but since I'm pretty stupid that means I'm just "geek chic".
    ... at least it rhymes I guess.
