We all know the stereotype: brilliant but overly awkward, unpopular, and the butt of many jokes for their super thick glasses, quirky braces, and arms full of books. Stereotypes aside, though, and we realize that what society has come to label ‘nerds’ are, in reality -- a force to be reckoned with.
And no, we’re not talking about “the Force” that gives a Jedi his power --sorry, nerds, didn’t mean to get your panties wet. What we mean is that despite what society has us believing, nerds are strong and powerful individuals with the ability to make a real difference in the world.
Just take a look at some of the bonafide ‘nerd’ tycoons. From Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos to Larry Page and Elon Musk. These nerds reign supreme in their fields, with a combined estimated network of over a cool $250 billion.
Yep, you read that right --billion, with a ‘B.’ The numbers alone prove it, so much so that the richest nerd of them all, Bill Gates, famously cautioned, “Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.”
That said, other than holding quite a bit of power, is there really anything sexier than someone who isn’t afraid to embrace their true dorky self? Back in the day, it used to be that the ladies would overlook the nerds for the obviously gorgeous athletes, but now they know that underneath the bookish, normcore exteriors lurks the much-desired nerd-hottie.
Sure, they might play a little too much Minecraft, get ahadron for science, or dream aboutblack holes and brighter days whenPluto was a planet. But analpha nerd will always work harder than anyone else to make sure you’re happy. Plus, seeing as they are so well-endowed with a big…brain, it’s nice to date a smarty who can get, err,physical. Just sayin’.
