Nerd? Geek? Dork?

    这大概是第二次和Matthias等人说起Nerd这个话题了。上一次是在Regensburg开会的时候,全组在印度餐厅聚餐后,回旅馆的路上Matthias将我划归Nerd。当时我听得一头雾水,为了简便起见,Matthias说Nerd就是Bill Gates(比尔盖茨)那样的人。这类人在智力和理解能力上超出社会的平均水平,他们理解社会大众的种种社交活动,但是习惯于以理性而非感性去看待世界。因此不屑于,或者说没有参与社交活动的动力,往往给人以不善言谈的呆头呆脑印象。早期Nerd是一个贬义词,随着叛逆一代对此推崇而变得流行,现在Nerd往往与Intelligent相连,反倒有了少量的褒义。Matthias说自己也是Nerd,Nerd没什么不好。去酒吧找乐子是欧洲人的普遍生活,Nerd一般都嫌吵不去,也是一种生活方式。他将其称之为“自己和自己玩一样很快乐”。

    今天大家合影过后,都没有了继续工作的心情,找了一大堆理由去阳台喝下午茶。从GEZ.说起电视台的政治倾向->法国政治丑闻->Merkel学物理出身,对她出淤泥而不染有很大影响(我们真是群Nerd啊XD)->然后就转移到物理学家有很多Nerd。Matthias推荐给大家一个网站,说各位都回去测一测自己是Nerd、Geek还是Dork。二十九岁的Phillip居然不知道这些词,听得兴高采烈。不过我肯定他一定不是Nerd,法国人就更不可能了。我的测试结果: 

Outcast Genius

70 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 61% Dork

For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.
Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don’t care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).
Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.
Congratulations!

评语里对Nerd、Geek和Dork之间的区别做了说明,这些区别很多“正常人”都搞不清。因为这三类人在“正常人”眼里都不正常,难以理解,也就谈不上区分了。Nerd是热衷于学习、变得聪明和学术化(理性化)的人。Geek热衷于超越和克服某一领域内的极限挑战,这个词往往用在计算机狂热者身上,后来变得广义化。Dork这类人则是无力与他人进行正常的交流互动。我的评语大意是:对社会世俗标准洞若观火,却不屑一顾;反而醉心于自己理解中对于世界*真正*重要的事物;一般来讲,这类事物不包括运动、汽车和时装(偶尔也会有例外,那么这些例外Nerd对于这些领域的知识之广博和理解之深刻就是他们所有的朋友捆一块儿也难以望其项背);为芸芸大众所不容,同时由于过于聪明而使周围的其他Geek和Dork感到难以立足,因此将会十分孤单;但是这类人往往会最终统治世界!例如比尔盖茨,Outcast Genius这类人的原型……

我觉得前半段还是蛮有意义的^ ^
