My ISTP friend is a nerd. Totally. It's in the mannerisms and speech. His speech is just...awkward. He's actually quite robotic in his movements. He was in the Marines. He's much more cerebral than I am. He thinks about things that I just don't care about. When he's drunk he gets even more nerdy. He just comes out with random stuff like "What if I was a pterodactyl?"
He's enneagram 5w6. I'm 7w8. That might make a difference.
I do crossword puzzles daily and collected comics into my early 20s. That's the extent of my nerditry.
I'm probably one of them. Lots of programming, video games, etc., good at maths/sciences, others see me as smart and I like to look into esoteric stuff every once in a while. I don't play tabletop RPGs or attend sci-fi conventions however, not quite at that level of nerdiness and I'd just get bored.
Though I am pretty good at sports when I'm not busy being lazy. I'd be a better athlete if I would get off of my arse once in a while and train.
Let us not rail about justice as long as we have arms and the freedom to use them.

Because random people I meet on the internet are the best judges of my personality.
Hmmm. I'm working in scientific research, I play a lot of computer games, don't like bars or drinking often, and read a lot of fiction and nonfiction - sometimes even for fun! I like fantasty and sci fi, and I've played mmorpgs and magic the gathering but given up both despite enjoying them. And I like forums better than interacting with real people most of the time.
