Must a character be a teenager to qualify as an Extroverted Nerd? Arnold Rimmer, of Red Dwarf, is a mature man, but otherwise fits the trope perfectly; despite his being the one most likely to throw out Even Nerds Have Standards zingers, he himself is the nerdiest member of the ship, with interests that include telephone pole spotting, diesel engine spotting, Morris dancing, Reggae music, Christian Rock, Risk, and too many others to list, as well as being totally oblivious to how much his crewmates look down on him as a nerd for these interests and extremely "in your face" about them - in one episode, even being directly told, to his face, that "your Risk campaign bores us; shut up already", doesn't make him stop and he just continues.

And the new title is misspelled, at that...

First, because that's a completely opaque title, second, what would the correct spelling be?

Both extraverted and extroverted are correct.

'Extroverted' is far more correct though.

"Extraverted" is a very common misspelling. "Extroverted" is correct.

I will withhold fixing it, due guidelines under Creating New Redirects.

What if the character isn't an extrovert, but more of a dandere, who still acts like a (stereo)typical nerd who thinks they're cool?
