The Obsessive Nerd
Nerds seem to have become the cool thing over the past few years. Never has a Star Wars fan like myself received so many “nice shirt” comments as when I wore some of my favorite Darth Vader or Han Solo graphic tees. Nerds are obsessive and that can be used to draw negative attention. The nerd obsession over comic books, science fiction and games often gets ridiculed. It’s almost as if they care more about their hobby than what people think about their devotion to their hobby. Great teammates are nerds about their job. They think about it and talk about it a lot. This is why some of the most successful people on the planet were or are still considered nerds. They care more than the “cool kids”.
