It's Not A Stereotype If It's True
In primary school, I was in the gifted program. Apparently I scored high in some standardized test and that led to further tests and the label "gifted". They may as well have labelled me "underachiever and proud of it".
Being in the gifted program meant going to a different school one day a week for special studies with a collection of nerds. Imagine if you took all the smartest kids out of every school in the city and threw them together. It was a total geekfest with (ahem) a few exceptions.
The game of choice among these brainiacs was Dungeons and Dragons. They took it all very seriously, playing roles and blurring the line between fantasy and reality. I laughed at them then, but I just know they're all driving way better cars and raking in the cash today. Damn nerds.
