    Default INTPs vs. INTJs: Who are the bigger nerds?

    What do you think?

    I like this definition for the word:

    Nerd - an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits
    - Webster's dictionary

    The 2 INTJs i know are fat, so id say they are, although one of them is shorter then me, but he still outweighs me so he's still bigger.

    definitely INTPs.

    Nerds have a thing about knowing all the BS in the world which is almost always useless.

    and when it comes to being king of all bullshit, INTPs are the best.

    Whereas INTJs know things which are useful. Yes as anyone would they would also learn BS, which is inevitable.

    But out of all the rationals I say, INTJs are the least likely to care about things that does not have any practical values.

    To clarify, these are the definitions I stand by

    Nerd : "a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious " and/or " an intelligent, single-minded expert in a particular technical discipline or profession"


    I see the Nerd as the book worm that just likes to study. He wears glasses and his last name is Gates. He is single-minded.


    Geek : "a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest" and/or "an unfashionable or socially inept person"

    The Geek is the bum. He isn't necessarily doing anything productive with his time. He's just curious and adores Star Wars.




    So Nerd = INTJ.

    I like this definition, from the Random House dictionary:

    Nerd - an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit

    And "bigger" as in "more so".

    If a Nerd is -
    A person who has way too knowledge in subjects which have no real life applications.

    How about now? try again.
