FINALLY: The Difference between Nerd, Dork, and Geek Explained by a Venn Diagram

By Great White Snark:

To all of you nerds and geeks who–like me–have been unfairly and inaccurately labeled “dorks,” only to then exhaustively explain the differences among the three to a more-than-skeptical offender, I say:

You’re welcome. This nerd/dork/geek/dweeb Venn diagram should save you a lot of time and frustration in the future.

Nerd Dork Geek Venn Diagram


  1. XKCD sums it up as well:

  2. Very funny – but who gets to decide whether you are intelligent / obsessive or socially inept – your inner nerd/geek or your socially inept character? And BTW if you are worrying about this at all you are probably dork.

    Who me – a dork? No…

  3. Cool! Am curious which bucket does the person who developed thisvenn diagram fall into?
