When it comes to which meme is the most popular, nerd memes take one of the top spots, why? Because it’s a lethal combination of wits and humor that not many people resist, the gallery below shows just that, and if you’re not laughing by the end of it, let us know.
Nerds always seem to get a bad rap. As far as stereotypes go, they are intelligent but often incredibly socially awkward. Sometimes it can lead to situations where making friends is difficult or even, in some cases, bullying.
But the nerd has a different reputation these days, thanks to the internet. Over time, nerds have gone from being perceived as losers to being somewhat cool and funny. The fact is that these individuals continue to contribute a unique flavor to society today.
What is the big deal with nerds and how have they come to be so distinct in terms of personalities, pop culture, and — of course — even memes?
What is a nerd?
Everybody seems to be familiar with the nerd stereotype, but few of us actually know what the label means. Nerds are individuals who are very intellectual and studious. They are very achievement-oriented and take part in activities that have to do with acquiring knowledge and skill.
Nerds are often confused with geeks. The main difference between the two is that geeks are usually fans of their subject of interest while nerds show some expertise.
Nerds share some core personality traits, such as being skilled enthusiasts and aficionados. Contrary to what movies and other popular forms of media show, not all nerds are introverted. Just try to get a nerd to shut up about something that he or she feels passionate about. We bet you’ll have a hard time doing so!
