While nerds everywhere are likely to have a few core personality traits in common, the truth is in the details. As a general group, nerds tend to be highly attentive to and focused on details — an obsessive need to know every last fact about their special interest, regardless of what specifically that is. Nerds in general are also likely to be driven more by personal motivations like intellectual curiosity and personal challenge, than material ones like status or money.
For them, the job is an end in itself — an interesting puzzle to solve, a way to combine their hobby with their work. Try getting a nerd to stop talking about their favorite topic once you get them started! Additionally, celebrity geeks such as sci-fi actors who are just as excited about what they do as their fans are prove that geeks and nerds no longer hide in basements — if they ever did.
Rather, geeks are out and proud. For example, Vin Diesel is a Dungeons and Dragons fanatic, while Natalie Portman has a psychology degree from Harvard and frequently gives academic lectures. Neither of these individuals are introverts in the conventional sense! What can we say about the various species of nerd and their natural habitats? The Math Nerd is ideally suited for an environment where s play a central role. As math ability in general tends to associate with highly abstract thinking, a Math Nerd aspiring to be a successful financial analyst would likely need more competitive drive and have more material goals than the average nerd!
Facts and figures are used as evidence for debate instead of as an end in themselves.
Problems are seen as open-ended and subjective. Empathy and intellectual openness are likely to be key traits of Political Wonks. Being lovers of debate, they are also likely to be more extraverted at least among their peers than other types of nerd. Mad Scientists represent yet another variation. While equally intellectually driven and attentive to detail, chemical engineers need a more concrete focus to solve specific, immediate problems.
Helpful for a job involving potentially unconventional working hours and environments, Mad Scientists are often among the more introverted nerd types, and tend to prefer to work independently, in their own way, without excessive supervision. Comic Book Geeks are perhaps the most stereotypical, widely known subspecies of the nerd genius. Like Mad Scientists, Comic Book Geeks are likely to be introverts who prefer working independently and relish unconventional hours.
