I feel I might be some of both, but more on the geek side judging by this pic. I'm not sure, though. I'm not positive of the differences.

My understanding of nerds, is their intellectual capacity. They have smarts in the areas of science, math, computers and technology, and just about everything else. Nerds can be socially awkward because their level of intelligence sometimes makes it difficult to communicate casually with other people that aren't as intelligent. However, this is not always true, and this doesn't mean that a nerd thinks of himself as greater than others just because of their smarts.
My understanding of geeks, is they are into entertainment that has an intellectual background. They may also have some of the social awkwardness, just because a lot of the entertainment, though it is intellectual, it is also very fantasy inspired. They have active imaginations and some people find it difficult to relate with them because they don't understand them.
Many nerds are geeks, and many geeks are also nerds, but not always.
I personally really like nerds because I love it when a guy is intelligent, and I find that super sexy! I'm a deep thinker myself and a little bit nerd, too. I'm also a dork, but that isn't nerd or geek; totally separate category!! :P2

The different between nerds and geeks in my opinion... is that geeks are nerds who are socially stunted.0
