There are two types of sci-fi/fantasy-loving computer folk in this world: Geeks and Nerds. It may be time to determine which category you fit into.

A geek is defined as, “An unfashionable or socially inept person. A knowledgeable and obsessive enthusiast: a computer geek,” as well as “A carnival performer who performs wild or disgusting acts.”

A nerd, meanwhile, is defined as, “A foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious: one of those nerds who never asked a girl to dance. A single-minded expert in a particular technical field: a computer nerd.”

To help determine which you are, check out the info graphic below:
