I'm a Food Geek...and I kind of like the Geek Chic, too.
@Arik I studied Japanese language and anthropology in college. It's funny how much is changed in the translations between language and cultural boundaries. When words and ideas cross cultural boundaries, they are sometimes reinvented so they can be accepted and used by the separate culture.
Disclaimer: Otaku has officially been taken off the Geek chart. Apologies to the anime-geeks. Not to worry, animes....@Tim has your back. Thanks @Tim. Good eye.
haha...it takes a geek to know a geek...nice rebuttal on the Otaku. Where are you getting your data from @Tim?
The otaku is not an 'anime-geek', which this infographic suggests. In fact, in Japan, Otaku is a person with an obsessive personality toward any sub-culture or particular interest. The anime Otaku is just the most popular and dramaticized in pop culture, such as in one of my favorite films Densha Otoko. (minus 2 dexterity - Wired.com)
Thank goodness for that! Therapy is expensive. At least this isn't a reason to go. More like a reason people hire you for work.
Aren't we all a little geeky in one way or another? It's our generation in a nutshell, but we've managed to make Geek...chic. Talk about a 180! haha
Now I know I am one in a few different ways. Thank you for this chart!
