小编摘要:现在,在美国已经出现了新兴“潮人”——极客。他们是电脑方面的专家,为人们提供准确的建议。他们比运动健将都要受人喜爱。就像Sheldon说的:Smart is the new sexy.

导读:据Modis信息科技公司的最新调查,六分之一的美国人认为自己是“极客”,另有多达57%的受访者认为被称为“极客”是一种赞美。该调查旨在纪念“极客节”。美国人最爱将“极客”和某些优点联系起来,比如45%的受访者认为“极客”非常聪明、能提供正确的技术建议(56%)、是新技术的尝鲜者(45%)。共有一千名美国成年人接受了调查。

Move over, high school quarterback. The geek is the new cool kid in town.

According to a new study presented by information technology company Modis in honor of Geek Pride Day, one in six Americans considers himself or herself a geek, and a whopping 57 percent believe being called a geek is a compliment.

Americans most closely associate the term "geek" with favorable attributes such as being extremely intelligent (45 percent), a reliable source for technology advice (56 percent) and a first adopter of technology (45 percent), according to a phone survey of 1,000 American adults.

However, perhaps one of the most interesting findings that supports this point is that nearly twice as many Americans would prefer to be called a “geek” (41 percent) rather than a "jock" (22 percent).

Of the people surveyed by the Opinion Research Group for Modis` study, 17 percent said they were geeks.

The results pointed to a cultural shift in the way Americans perceive geeks. While two-thirds of "Millennials," the age 18-34 demographic group, think being identified as a geek is a compliment, only 39 percent of respondents who are 65 and older agree.

Eighty-two percent of the respondents feel it is more acceptable to be a geek today than it was 15 years ago.

"It might be Americans` increasing dependence on and comfort with technology, or the prevalent images of former `geeks` who now successfully lead multibillion-dollar technology companies, but being a geek has gone mainstream," said Jack Cullen, president of Modis.

At the same time, the survey showed self-identified geeks are not as fond of the label "nerd."

Eighty-seven percent of them say they were more comfortable being called a geek than a nerd. Survey respondents feel the professional fields best-suited for geeks are video game designer (65 percent), technology engineer (50 percent) and professional blogger (37 percent).
