    I did this to someone in grade 8, half way through the year he disappeared.

    But he's arrogant and pompous. I know he's an INTJ because he never ever talks about himself and is not bossy or loud or self centered.

    I wouldn't say he's a nerd. He is, to a degree because he kind of has a rep. as being this genius god that everyone worships, but he is popular and he goes to a lot of parties and he has a ton of friends.
    This sounds like what happened to me in my grade 7 year - except for the sports.

    Hang on - why are we excluding girls from this conversation?

    I'm an INTJ, a girl, and probably a nerd/geek (depending on the very flexible definition of those words).

    That may not be helping the cause, but...I'm pretty sure there are non-geeky and non-nerdy INTJs.

    I don't think I have ever been a nerd or a geek. Well, aside from being an IT person and romantic/relationship challenged for most of my life and I'm kind of anal/OCD about some thing. I don't love math. I don't even like math. When I took math classes I use to say...I foresee a lot of raging tears in the near future, (fortunately I have a physics/math major ENFJ and he's an outstanding teacher). I love sports and I care a great deal about how I look.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    It is being self-interested. Why can't there be more than one form of being self-interested? Why must you boil down all self-interest to the lowest common denominator so that anybody who's self-interested in a different way is a NUUUURD HURHURHUR because ALL INTJS MUST BE NERDS?

    You didnt get my point really. I told that there is allso other forms of being self-intrested than studuying. When there is other forms of being self-intrestrested, you cant use that as argument for studuying. The way you are self-intrested reflects your true self, and when you choose university as form of being self-intrested you are intrested about learning nerdy stuff, instead for example living as a hippie in some community in the woods. University and what you get yout of it makes you happy, thats why you choose it as form of self-intrest.

    That last sentence of yours i dont understand.

    Contrary to all the posts, I'm guessing not.

    But that would be like saying some who is intrested in football is an idiot or in a next step: a physics professor cant be religious.

    I dont think its that easy with stereotypes.

    I think I do understand what you are trieing to do here, but let those nerds find out for themselves. Only thing that counts in the end is that they are happy with what they do.

    I played varsity sports, am socially skilled and play the guitar. I build bikes in my spare time and work at a cycle/ski shop. I have learned how to dress myself quite adequately.



    I also was a band geek (just for the tours! we got to go across North America), took third year chemistry for fun, and am hopefully going to live in academia if all goes to plan.
