The upside of being awkward

The nerdy kid or adult is not all bad.

  • Their deep focus gives them a particular perspective that no one else takes the time to notice.
  • Their narrow attention can help awkward people to develop unique expertise. Famous examples would be people like Steve Jobs or Albert Einstein, whose obsessive interests helped fuel innovation.
  • Awkward people may be more likely to excel at systematic problem-solving tasks.

Those who are not socially awkward could practice a greater appreciation and empathy, reaching out toward those who struggle socially.
