Top Ten Signs You're a Nerd

The Top Ten

1 You don't laugh at this list

I don't have a really good sense of humour... - DapperPickle

I laughed my head off when I read this list and I'm a nerd!

Wrong! I laughed at this list BECAUSE I am a nerd!

Didn't know I had to laugh though...
(When nerds become overthinkers)

2 When the people in P.E. go to the workout room; you would rather stay behind and read

That's not just nerds; it's sensible people. - PositronWildhawk

I would rather stay behind at any age, but not read when I was little. I used to hate reading back then. - Jasmine21064

...yeah, I do this all the time. And for your information, I prefer the term "intellectual bad... other word for donkey". Sorry, I'm not allowed to say the actual word.

I hate PE am I a nerd? - Jake09

Depends. Do you like a fictional universe a bit obsessively? Do you lose yourself in books or math? - Ashes

3 You remember your favourite song in binary code or by its run time

When I was six, I remembered a lot of songs by their run time. - PositronWildhawk

I memorized the URL for Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" to avoid being rick rolled. - ethanmeinster


I've Seen Footage - Death Grips - 3 minutes and 22 seconds. - DarkBoi-X

4 You know more people online than in person

Kind of inaccurate. I mean...I have 2000+ followers on Instagram so half yes...? - AlphaQ

Never seen a more obvious number one in my life. Knowing most people online defines the "nerd"!

Yep, this is me, I have more friends online than in real life. I just do not follow trends like many of the other people do.

Well, I know more people in real life, but my amount of friends is pretty much the same: barely any people want to associate themselves with me. - saturatedsunrise

5 You refer to eating and drinking as uploading

Nerds don't do this. Maybe sleeping as charging but that's about it

Charging? That's what I call sleeping. - PositronWildhawk

And downloading? Maybe pooping. - Kiteretsunu

I call it charging

6 Read the dictionary because you want to.

The sad thing is that I actually do this...

Sometimes I do this because I want to learn interesting, new words that might be funny and comical. And I thought no one did this, but apparently, it is a thing. I sometimes do want to read the dictionary.

I love words, what's wrong with this? I should try that sometime, I'll improve my vocabulary skills even more! - Merilille

All my friends thought I was insane for WANTING to a read a dictionary for no reason

7 You try to levitate out of bed using the Force

lol this is freaking hilarious... - Dead_Frozen

I tried that with a cup before, and, I SWEAR, I saw the cup shake a little. - Jasmine21064

You uncultured swines, I use my cerebal cortex to levitate my self. There is no such thing as the Force! - MrGuyDudeMan

Totally, man! My thoughts exactly. I would totally want to levitate all Phoebe Halliwell style out of bed by using the Force but it didn't work out.

8 You own over 1000 video games

My Best Nerd Friend Liam, owns over 9, 000 video games in his house, and he likes to play every video game. He never leaves the house. All he does is play video games and never leave the house. That's why Liam is such a Nerd.

Well I am having only one sign of being a nerd which is this one but it is not necessary I am not a nerd any angle but I am a good gamer that doesn't mean I am a nerd

lol! #1 way to get a girlfriend.

It's not the amount of games you own, it depends how obsessive you are. I love video games, but I'm not a nerd. But again, being a nerd isn't a bad thing, just something I'm not. - Therandom

9 You know more IP addresses than phone numbers

I gosh. I play Minecraft way too much.

Yes rob lox and Minecraft

NaH, I'm the complete opposite. - AlphaQ

Log files... if you get me...

10 You celebrate geeky holidays like pi Day (March 14), Star Wars Day (May 4th), etc.

Yesterday was National star wars day I am a total star wars nerd! By the way I took some college lessons on microbiology when I was in second grade and am in the #1 USA education program known as the "STATE OF Texas GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM" which we know as Expo as in EXpotential POtential. And I am going to be in this year's STEM academies as in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics.

May the fourth be with you! Ohh and don't forget towel day.

I would only celebrate PI day for one reason: Pie. I'm awful at math and I hate, no reason to celebrate it. As for Star Wars, much as I like it I don't celebrate may the 4th - Therandom

There's also an international chocolate day. Give you and your video game characters to celebrate or read a book about chocolate. - FennikenFan9

The Contenders

11 You hack into your friends computers to remind them of how bad their passwords suck

Duh! IT's important that people don't keep their passwords lying around in a piece of paper!

Most of my friends passwords are like kitty36 and password. It's so obvious!

Yes my friend has the weirdest password

I should do this! My friends in real life have easy passwords like basketball123. - saturatedsunrise

12 You never get out of the house

I don't know why but I am the complete opposite, I am always out of my house, when I was younger my mom always complained about me coming home late like at 9pm (that's not that late though) but no shes back in Egypt and my parents are divorced and I stay with friends so yeah I don't know if that counts or no or yes or no or yes or no - AlphaQ

I'm pretty sure at this point you would be more of an introvert than a nerd.

next to me, my computer is my best friend xD - rock2metal

Roses are red (sometimes)
Violets are blue
I love my phone
And it loves me too. - keycha1n

I now MUST learn this, Pythagoras can wait, I MUST! - Merilille

I love the Asap Science element song

14 You watch The Big Bang Theory because it's touching, not because it's funny

Eh, it's mediocre. How is it touching though? Half the time I hear laugh tracks. - AlphaQ

I am a nerd. Most people on this lists aren't real nerds. The Big Bang Theory is deemed unwatchable in every sense by myself and all of my different nerd friends.

No kidding! I can totally relate to Sheldon (he is a theoretical physicist, I am a "theoretical physicist in training" as I enjoy saying.

It's nice to see a popular television show which tackles issues that I face in my day-to-day life. It's refreshing.

15 You can't get by without naming one Pokemon each day

How is Pokemon nerdy?!?!? , - Nateawesomeness

I guess I'm a nerd then... No shock here... - Ninja_Potato123

I like Pokemon and I'm not a nerd. - Soulstealer

But I'm not a nerd, I'm a connoisseur! Actually, I'm both. - RiverClanRocks

16 If someone asks you what the answer to EVERYTHING is, you immediately respond with '42'.

It's the meaning of life! On Vine, when that kid says that 10+9= 21, we all thought that he was stupid. but he wasn't. There was a higher meaning. 21 is half of 42... - ethanmeinster

42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. Thank you for being such a good read Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

You've just reminded me that I'm getting nerdier and nerdier

Yes that's like the number of life

17 When seeing a popular girl; you ask her what elements are in hair shampoo

Lmao nah bro don't do that that's creepy as he L L . I just ask for her number and if shed wanna hang. - AlphaQ

I'd ask Camilla this, and at the end I'd say, because it's making you ugly. - AnonymousChick

When a op ulnar girl sees me she asks about my hair because it reaches my hips, their always telling me to cut it so I usually try to avoid the annoying brats

Miss I like your hair, did you put some Hydrogen and Carbon to it?

18 You are obsessed in other peoples grades

I just like to see other peoples grades because I fail every thing and like to see I'm not the only one that failed

Yeah. I’m top of my class and it just kind of makes me feel better about myself when I see that a quarter of the grade is failing and my lowest grade is a 96.8. I have a problem

I'm not competitive, I just have to know where they're at or I go crazy.

I do that all the time. But not for competition I just NEED to know. - CartoonsGirl

I'm probably the smartest girl in my class, but that isn't good enough for me. - FennikenFan9

19 You watch the History Channel

I am TOTALLY obsessed with the H2 channel! (The regular history channel is TREMENDOUSLY boring-nothing historic REGULARLY comes on! Only a bunch of useless reality shows. )

Yeah I love history

No, I hate history!

I am a translator

20 You know pi to more than 10 places

Am I the only person who had a poster with the first 50 digits of pi in his 4th grade math class and unironically memorized all of them? - MSA33

Most calculators don't even know that! - booklover1

I know pi to 107 decimals - lolingdog9000

I used to know about 1,000 digits...but I forgot.

21 You like Harry Potter

How is this nerdy? My mom is the one that got me into this but she isn't a nerd at all.

How does liking Harry Potter make someone a nerd? - OnlyInDreams

I love Harry Potter and Hermione is me as a witch - geekgirl23

I hate this and what you are doing with this.

22 You know Klingon better than English

What the hell is Klingon

Nope. I know English better than the Language I was born with. - Blight

No actually

23 You read books every day for fun.

Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Maze Runner, The 100, and Harry Potter. - PianoQueen

I love reading. My favorite book series is Percy Jackson, which got me obsessed with mythology( which I did love before I read the books but I got more obsessed) and that lead to astronomy and word orgins and a lot of other things - lbelle0527

Dude I have more books than cells in my body

Books are life!

24 You bring a calculator with you everywhere you go

Calculators are of the most significant tools that a nerd should ALWAYS carry with them! They come most in handy when dealing with large numbers such as the speed of light or Planck time, other than that any nerd could just use their brains.

Damn... I guess I am a nerd. My calculator is my best friend though. I don't think I ever left it all alone. You know your a nerd if you value your calculator more than real people. - Robobrain

I don't use a calculator but my brain!


I use it constantly. For my math homework. (I know how to do it though. It's just too easy which makes it boring.)

25 You love school more than anything

I.LOVE. SCHOOL! Also, I love finding out complex chemical formulas and words via the internet. - geekgirl23

I hate how people think all smart people are school-loving nerds. I'm really smart, but I HATE school.

I love school, but not the much I love my friends, family and teachers so it counts that I am not a nerd

I love school and the uniform!

26 You own a lightsaber and use it on a regular basis

I own one, but I don't use it on a regular basis. That reminds me, I should use it regularly! - Misfire

As a girl, this top is making me pissed, I'm actually a huge nerd

I use my red lightsaber for prank people. - AlphaQ

27 You know where to buy Alienware.

I do know where to by Alienware, whats the big deal guys! Nerds are humans not animals that people treat them like one. I'm not a nerd but I do know how a nerd feels if someone teases him by calling him a nerd. And some people are just so idiotic that they call smart people nerds.

I'm the smartest person in school, but not a nerd.

yes h o n e y area 51

oh no poleece at my house hgelp - AlphaQ

28 You have an imaginary girlfriend.

If I have an imaginary girlfriend in gacha life does it count?

From anime, of course. - ethanmeinster

Oh god, that one's so true...

29 People who know you best call you 'Sheldon'.

Advanced Spelling test, highest grades, Math Olympiads and yet no one has ever bother to call me a name. I am also athletic and SUPER flexible. I'm pretty lucky.

My niece and a colleague affectionately refer to me thusly.

What if that's your first name? - Nateawesomeness

I'm the Sheldon of band. One of my best friends is the Sheldon of science. - PianoQueen

The acronym HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol - the technology used to communicate between web servers and web users.

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, I just read about this earlier... - Fandom_Lover

33 You really hate arrogant people

I can write that but I can't read my own handwriting.

So I'm a nerd, right? - PizzaGuy

36 You hate football

I don't hate football, I just don't watch football games. And other sports games. - Jasmine21064

Football is good, American football is overrated and the weak version of rugby in my opinion. - AlphaQ

Yes... I barely even know who won the Super Bowl last year (the reason I know is because I have a brother who insists on talking about sports in my ear 24/7 and that's the only sports thing I know) and I will only be at my family's Super Bowl party for the food. (I won't watch football; I'll bring out a book about classical music or Shakespeare. )

Hating football doesn't make me a nerd. And I probably hate football more than anyone.

Yep. Sounds like me. - PianoQueen

42 You are freakishly skinny

oh yea I think I am, I'm almost 18 *happy beer noises* and I am 5'4 and I'm around 44 kg so yea, I think that counts as underweight. - AlphaQ

I mean... I am not freakishly skinny, plus I don't think I am skinny though my mom does, shes ALWAYS saying you need to go outside more and I mean, technically this is outside because other wise I would be under a tree reading, man I love my mom! - KazutoKirigaya

I can actually produce dictionary-quality definitions of any word I know in under a second. - Kaboom

I regularly read Wikia and Wikipedia articles

47 After watching Weird Al Yankovic's White and Nerdy music video you try to make out the equation in the background

I do not necessarily watch THOSE specific shows, but I often find myself in a much similar state afterwards.

I did just that

I know I'm not a nerd, cause I don't even need this stupid list to know, so there.

I'm straight, dude. - Jasmine21064

I mean... yeah, but at the same time... yeah - KazutoKirigaya

Hell no! - 3DG20

49 Nikola Tesla is your hero.

Yes... I want to be as smart as Tesla, and I know that Edison stole lots of Tesla's ideas. Tesla invented Alternating Current (the current we use today), but Edison gets ALL the credit. Tesla fans, unite to give Tesla the legacy he deserves.
Plus, I hugged a kid because he is a Tesla fan.

Of course. - Arcxia

My hero is Halsey.
