6. They are deep wells of insight
What makes up a geek is basically a combination of enthusiasm, dedication, and strong hunger for knowledge and mastery of a specific set of topics that might not necessarily interest most people. They’re the kind of people who don’t need school teachers and parents pushing them to study something just to get it over with. They’re gonna study and work on stuff hard until they become wizards and experts.
And this capacity tends to spill over into other parts of life. They tend to approach everything as a sort of project to master. And the result are insights you might not expect from most people, or non-geeks, insights that may sometimes really change your perspective.
