    Personally I think calling an individual, much less a group of people "nerdy" or geeky" is a foolish practice.

    I suppose for the sake of fun its alright, but expecting a person to behave according to some arbitrary definition can lead to unfortunate oversight of their actual behavior.

    Neither are Nerds per se (although their are a fair number of INTP/INTJ nerds, mainly because of their minority personality type differences who will get thrown in with the nerds or outside group thereby picking up some nerdy characteristics

    I hate these categories. "Nerds" and "geeks" rule and drive society, and the only consolation prize for the average unsuccesful person is the fact that he/she can label them with pejorative terms.
    Furthermore, people "devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits" can still be dead sexy.

    I don't really care about the results btw, it's only a matter of definition.

    Funny thing is though that Albert Einstein would be nothing if it weren't for Isaac Newton, cause then he would have had nothing to prove in his Theory Of Relativity.

    INTJs never appeared to me as "nerds." To me, they always seemed driven to master their own realm. This realm, of course, may be academia or some related area, but it need not be. In other words, they don't try to be the smartest or get the best grades in school because they want to be a genius. They simply want to be the best. Standard will not satisfy an INTJ.

    Again, my thoughts above are my impressions from studying INTJs and is not necessarily based on typology theory.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    You can't prove anything.

    Matthew_Z "You can't prove anything."
    Einstein's Theory Of Relativity was proving that the faster you moved, time moved at a different pace aswell, he would have had no starting ground if it wasn't for newton because what we he have to proved?

    INTP "Funnier thing is that newton wouldn't be anything without his work group"
    This is true when it came to his mathematics work, what i was trying to prove was about einsteins use of newtons gravitational and mechanics work which was done by himself.

    And besides what beats the 3 Laws of Motion...
