Nerd is the Word

He is a tough-minded, independent thinker who likes to explore ideas or problems thoroughly. Yet he has a wild side and is not interested in maintaining routine social engagements either.

He gravitates to men and women who are intellectually exciting and like to discuss topics broadly and thoroughly.

He tends to like someone who is spontaneous, even mischievous, as well as a mate who can appreciate his rugged individualism and support of his drive to succeed.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • I like to figure out how things work
  • I am willing to take risks to do what I want to do
  • I tend to be cautious, but not fearful

in his own words...

I use "Nerd is the Word" as my headline not so much because I have oily hair and a pocket-protector (both untrue), but because I am not a jock, sports-fan, Adonis, Lothario, or Casanova. I'm not even the guy next-door, if you interpret that as average or bland. I’m far more cerebral than physical. I’d rather match wits than pass a football. I’d rather watch Book TV than a basketball game (In case you didn’t catch that, I just admitted to watching C-SPAN!) I’d rather play Scrabble than watch NASCAR. Before you decide that I’m a shut-in, you should know I do enjoy physical activity. I’ve raced sailboats for years. I’ve kayaked quite a bit. I’ve dabbled in rowing. Recently I’ve taken up bicycling and love it. I’d love to run again; but my knees won’t allow it. I’d like to hike, but don’t like the local venues. I'm an outlier in search of another outlier or a woman who appreciates outliers. Please feel free to interpret "outlier" as "eccentric"; I don't mind that descriptor and I appreciate your cynical streak. Some more detail: I attended an elite college and was successful in the time that I attended, but did not finish for health reasons. (If I ever write a book it will be about my disappointments with the medical profession—long story; the final outcome is that I’m in good health now. Where was Dr. House when I needed him?) I’m a problem solver and an innovator, and I’ve used these skills with good success in several industries. What am I looking for? A partner, not a competitor. Someone I can respect and who will respect me. Someone with her own interests who can expand my world. Someone who is strong where I am weak**, is forgiving of my flaws** as I will be of yours. Sense of humor is a must. A giving personality is a must—I am a net-giver also (I think), but it’s a bummer being the only one. **Weaknesses and flaws will have to be discussed later—there is a character limit, after all!

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
