    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 a 5w6 I guess I'm a nerd...I tend to shift between two worlds theory and practical. But if I stay in that thinking mode too long I just feel annoyed and irritated. Se starts to show at that point.

    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.

    I have always been a nerd in hiding.

    An MIT nerd is different then a RPG nerd. One lives in sci-fi fantasy and one lives in reality fantasy. They do mix, but they are not the same type of nerdiness.

    Let's face it: In the grand scheme of things, if you polled 10,000 random people, being a "member of a psychology website which classes people based on 16 archetypes" is, well, pretty nerdy.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    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.

    Sounds pretty nerdy to me.
