The good people over at Flowtown have made a chart after my own heart. This lovely little Geek Flowchart has me all over it, and I was absolutely enamoured when I saw it, despite its lack of lady geeks like myself. So, which geeks do I identify with?
Obviously our good friend the internet geek. As a programmer/web site builder, he and I are two peas in a pod… Or a sweater vest.
As he clings to his iPad, this fellow social media and blogging aficionado could trade quips about sleek Apple design all day on any of our many platforms.
Voyager and TNG forever! My love of Captain Picard takes up a huge place in my heart… This one needs very little explanation.
I love getting a little quality time with StarCraft II, a little Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood or maybe even some Zombie Smash (I still love it!) or anything else that captures my attention. I just love escaping into my own world for a bit… Also, winning.
The food and design geeks embody my love of everything pleasing to the senses and my love of creativity. I’m very particular about my aesthetics, and I do geek over fonts just as much as I love getting in the kitchen with a new recipe or making something up on the fly.
As a film making geek, as well as a lover of horror, zombies and Tarantino, I think it’s fair to say that I fit in as a film geek, even if that isn’t one of my dominant geek trades. Also, I’m a major music geek. I just love getting my hands on an instrument (no, not like that) and finding a way to make it work beautifully. Plus, I love writing my own music, which just fuses it all together and leaves me for many nights working intently on getting everything just right.
So, what kind of a geek are you?
