Lean to more nerdy than geek
Comment by Jose Bautista on January 8, 2016 at 11:44pm

This is unclear...what is the criteria to define the groups? how do you define a Nerd and how do you define a Geek? what's the criteria based on? is it all based on clustering patterns?

Some Geeks are GERDS, all GERDS are Nerds, not all Nerds are Geeks, and not all Geeks are Nerds.  It is interesting that the center (45-degree) line represents two mutually exclusive categories:  Agnostics (Neither; let's call them "NEEKS" just to be fair) and GERDs (Both [equally]).  This apparently violates some macroscopic variant of the Pauli exclusion principle; while simultaneously reinforcing the validity of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. If we seek refuge in Kiri-kin-tha's First Law of Metaphysics that: Nothing unreal exists, then we must first determine if the (mythical?) GERD is real before we deal with the second issue of said GERD's ability to occupy the same space, time, and quantum state as the aforementioned NEEK. Contemplating these paradoxes can give one a bad case of GERD.

The resolution: GERDs are actually on the line; NEEKS are at (0,0).  The fabric of spacetime remains in tact.

Very interesting.  Naturally, I don't think I belong to either category - at  least not exclusively.  Some attributes I would include in the clustering which may lead to other dimensions are musical abilities such as number of and skill level with musical instruments including voice, other arts including photography, language skills including foreign and possibly dead languages.  I'm sure there are other very important attributes I'm overlooking.
