Nerd needs

What a nerd really wants is other nerds who wish to dive deep into his subject with him, for that fundamental human need to share with others what is important to us, and also as a means to deepen understanding through collaboration. Generally if he attempts to share his enthusiasm, though, he gets friendly spectators who observe the surface effects of his excitement over something unfathomable (that is, unfathomably complicated and tedious), and the typological fact that this is always going on with him. There’s good will in the form of friendly sentiment — lots of “good”, little “will”.
