Nerd Stereotypes

I self identify (very positively) as a nerd. I love learning, I wax passionately about science, and I meet many stereotypes.

Yesterday, on my way home from Nerd Nite, I realized that I had at least three separate allergic reactions happening simultaneously. I say at least, because I can only pay attentions to so many symptoms at once. I am lactose intolerant, allergic to fragrances, wear glasses, have a retainer, and had braces as a child. Did this predispose me to being a successful adult nerd? I am so curious!

Has anyone actually tested if there is a correlation between nerdyness (self-identified, externally identified) and of wearing glasses, braces, developing allergies, etc?

I’d like to see some research.
