Of course, the majority of Goths are unique in their style and music preferences. However, within the subculture there are certain "types" of Goth with particular characteristics. And it can be fun to classify them. Naturally, classifications for each "type" vary from person to person, so you may disagree with what I say here!

I myself am a big fan of Star Trek, love science, participate in role play, spend way to much time on the computer and speak Japanese. I am most certainly a Geek.

Was looking through your page to try and find out what I should try and fit into to be taken seriously as a goth. Instead found out my style is already it's own subclass. Thanks for that!

This is my type, mixed with some cabaret, metal, victorian, and casual elements.

Definitely a Geek Goth. I've been a nerd my whole life, and while I haven't been a goth for quite as long, I'm glad I'm a goth. In fact, I dare say that it's my dorky interests that helped me discover what goth is and allowed me to have a "gothic awakening," so to speak.

If I had to pick a type of Goth for myself, I suppose Geek Goth would be it.

You should know nerds and geeks. I'm barely some kind of internet goth and a cartoon fangirl. :) I remember that goths are geeks and nerds, too. I reimagine that fictional characters being all goth. And I reimagine drawing Penny Sanchez making her all gothic geek and making Ghoulia Yelps wearing black clothes and wearing glasses. Goths wear glasses, too. Geek goths are fans of anime, Disney, Nickelodeon shows and many others. And they love School for Vampires.

I'm a combination of a few of these stereotypes, and since people would most likely mistake for just a geek and not a Goth, I think this is one of those stereotypes.

After all, my t-shirts have cartoons on them, and my favorite character on most cartoons is the nerd.

Yay! (It's a good thing nerds are cool now, or else I would be ashamed to admit my nerdiness.)

Hey, I was like this during my middle school days. :D After that I did fall out of goth stuff for a long while, but thankfully I now have interest in it again.

This is so me. I love technology and finding out how it works, love science, am on my computer way to often and if not my computer, then my smartphone. I am also a big fan of TMNT, Star Wars, Star Trek, and the Big Bang Theory (I would be closest to Leonard, just a girl and all in black).

I have that Cthulhu plushie! OK, this may sound weird but I want to be a Geek Goth. I just don't have to be Geeky or Gothic so it's really hard for me. I just wish that I could...

[I can agree with this to some extent.  After all, even though I now prefer to dress dark and developed a somewhat more morbid fascination, I still love cartoons and roleplaying more than most people probably do, not to mention I still wear glasses and remember some stuff I learned in school.]
