Why do people think being really smart, like having a 4.0 GPA is nerdy?

people think just because your smart makes your a nerd.... that's so stupid to me. but anyways want do people think that? I have 3.7 GPA and people say like oh your a nerdy because your so smart.... how does that make me a nerd?... I don't get it.

Haha. I guess I could have added some other stuff in like, they might be hurting at home, they might feel bad about themeselves, what's wrong with being a nerd? Nerds are awesome, nerds are smart, I wish I was a nerd, they're just jealous etc.

But, I think my first answer suffices lol

Just because you're smart doesn't mean your a nerd...some people just think that. It's like how some people think people with glasses are nerdy. Someone can be a nerd and be not so smart in a different subject. I got a 4.0, but I'm not so good in English.

It's their way of making themselves "feel" better because they know they will be asking..." Would you like fries with that?" for their career.

They are just jealous. Some people find a need to label everything they are not. There is nothing wrong with being a nerd, geek, or simply smart. Just remember those calling you that, with their mediocre grades, will be working for YOU one day.

I don't think that being smart is nerdy, but know it all people can get on the nerves of some, but in general well informed and educated people are cool, as long as they don't make others feel dumb on purpose.

She just loves him & always has!! You should see the two of them together! Honestly she will tell you, she has more fun with him than she does her dad & she sees him(helix) maybe once every couple weeks for maybe 15-20 min. But they do get to text each other!! :)

I'm a little freaked out that she's leaving but maybe I'll feel better after I see the school. She's majoring in marketing with a minor in fashion merchandising.

It's a stereotype. I find smart people much more interesting and fun to be around. Just remember smart and "nerdy" kids in school usually end up being the bosses of the kids who make fun of them.

What's wrong with being a nerd? You're acting as if that's a bad thing. 80% of my graduating class would be considered as a nerd, and judging from their lifestyle a few decades down the road, it's not a bad thing at all. Would you rather be a stupid? And be some low informed brick layer or commercial driver the rest of your life?

They think being dumb as a rock makes them cool. That's why "NERD" is now an insult. Then I whip out my comeback and say, "Atleast I'm not stupid."

I don't know, my GPA is 4.0, and no one calls me nerdy :/
Probably because my whole school is all pretentious and full of overachievers.
