May 25th is National Geek Pride Day

This Saturday – May 25th is National Geek Pride Day – Survey Shows Geeks are More Popular than Ever – 68% of Americans Would Date a Geek
This Saturday the 25th, is National Geek Pride Day! Geek Pride Day is celebrated annually on the anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope on 25 May 1977.
To help celebrate the holiday, my client Modis IT Staffing conducts an annual Geek Pride Day survey that looks at geeks and tech in modern culture. Some of the top findings from this year’s survey (of 1000 Americans) include:
* Love Connections: Sixty-eight percent (68 percent) of all respondents say they would date a geek! This could be because a majority (67 percent) of Americans associates geeks with being loyal, an important component to any relationship. * Geeks are smart: More than half (58 percent) of Americans define geeks as extremely intelligent. A 13 percentage point increase over our survey in 2011 * Geeks think they are funnier than they actually are: It’s quite possible geeks think they are funnier than they actually are. Seventy-four percent of self-described geeks say they think geeks are funny, compared to only 53 percent of non-geeks. * Even non-geeks are proud of geek interests: 65 percent of respondents (including non-geeks) say that if they were trying to impress someone, they would take pride in their “geek” toys (i.e. Stuffed animals and action figures), 90 percent say they would be proud of their books and comic books, and a surprising 65 percent would be proud of their superhero or cartoon character clothing, including pajamas. * Gainful Employment: Seventy percent of respondents who self-identify as a geek are employed, compared to only 54 percent of non-geeks * Wearable Tech: Half of all Americans (51 percent) would wear either smart glasses or a smart watch.
