What Makes Nerds Winners?

Who run the world? Nerds.
Pop Fiction

What makes nerds winners? People think it's a simple equation of 20 hours of studying + 4.0 GPA – 0 chances of failing x 99% success rate / 1 goal—but it's much more than that. Let's calculate our way to success, shall we?

Multiplying knowledge

The thirst for knowledge—and not settling for anything mediocre—is the key to success. That's why hard work and being a total bookworm actually pay off. Pure luck won't get ya there, fella!

Dividing time

You might think we don't have a social life, but we actually do! We just choose the ones that are worth our time. That way, we get to accomplish more tasks and maximize our time.

Adding experience

Mastered a skill? Then how about you learn a new one. One of the things we love is a great challenge. It makes us better workers—and maybe someday even great bosses, too!

Subtracting negativity

Who cares if people call us nerds? We love what we do and we’re really good at it, so we don’t let other people’s opinions affect us.  We just shrug off negativity.

Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory

He entered college at 11 years old, graduated summa cum laude at 14 years old, was the youngest recipient of the Stevenson Award, is now a senior theoretical physicist, and has an equally smart girlfriend, Amy. Success in career and love = WIN!

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

Fact: If it weren't for Hermione's knowledge and quick thinking, Harry and Ron might not have survived. From retrieving the Philosopher’s Stone to making the Polyjuice Potion to using the Time-Turner... I mean, this girl can do anything!

Bill Gates (co-founded Microsoft and is the richest man in the world)

Perhaps the most successful nerd in the world, not to mention *ehem* the richest man in the world *ehem*, Gates took his knowledge and mustered the courage to start his own company at the young age of 20. Btw, that company’s called Microsoft.

Sarah Littman from the book As Told By Nerdy
