2364.As someone who considers themselves and Alpha Geek of longstanding (at least I am in this household) I found this Venn diagram (by way of BoingBoing, who take none of my linky suggestions, but I love them anyway) more than intriguing. From the "Wish I'd Of Thought Of This One" Dept:
Venn diagrams are nifty. You don't have to know what they are but the communicate. For instance, in most of my passions, I consider myself passing intelligent as unequivocally obsessed and in social situations I can be quite the butterfly, so I see myself as a Geek. This is also not considered a pejorative around here.
