Nerdfighters? dftba? French the llama? Giant squid of anger? in your pants?

For those of you who don't get this I'll share two of their most recent video and a few of their older ones. For those of you who do, hello.

Hi there,

I was introduced to their stuff not long ago, I wouldn't call myself a nerdfighter exactly, but I've been really enjoying their "crash course" youtube channel, satisfies my thirst for general knowledge nicely :p

no edge!

etc...

@DarwinsBastard : I love the crashcourse series! If I had Hank as my Biology teacher I probably would have done much better in that class than I actually did. Almost makes me want to major in biology... (OK, maybe not that far, but he's extremely engaging!)

And John's world history series is also awesome. I'm actually following that one more closely because history is awesome.

--- But to the point, yes, I'm a nerdfighter! DFTBA

Oooh, oooh, I'm crashing the party :)

I'm a nerdfighter by association, as I'm not a huge vlogbrothers fan so much as I am a desparately obsessive admirer and adorer of John's books.

I do love the videos, though! I just liked him as an author first. If I could pick any living person in the world to meet, it would be him.

I got introduced to them because of the Accio Harry Potter video and have been hooked ever since. I like Hank's new SciShow too. And I wish I'd preordered John's new book so I could've been Hanklerfished. :( Anyway, yes I love them.

I preordered it, and mine came with John's signature, BUT NO HANKLERFISH.

Needless to say, I was heartbroken.

I'm pretty much certain that is the first time I've seen his wife.

Also I'd say I like John more of the two brothers, I mentally click more with him then hank and he often say's things that I have either thought of before and felt where rare thoughts to have* or says stuff I've never thought of before but make total sense to me. He also reminds me of one of my idols Anthony Bourdian, who while may seem different on the surface is very similar to JG when you remove the layers. At least to me.

* "... You can never fully feel someone else's pain, and that someone else can never fully feel your pain...."

An INFP, talking about an INFP character, written by an INFP, being posted on an INFP forum, by an INFP. If you believe all these to be correct we officially have INFP-ception and then some.

I found them kind of overwhelming. I couldn't watch an entire video. I felt like someone was shooting at me, but with words...
They both seem quite extroverted. The guy in first video seems like an ENFP maybe.

That is defiantly not the case, theses two are as far form extroverts as you can get. Also Extroverts can be introverts, it's extraverts which can't be introverts.

I think one of the reasons they always speak so quickly and emphatically in their videos is that when the project first started, part of the deal was that their videos couldn't be longer than 4 minutes. So they got used to jamming as much content in as they could, chattering really quickly to fit everything in and I think that style has kind of stuck. They're not so blahblahblahblahblablah during normal conversation.

I've always thought that John was INFx and Hank was xNTP.

I LOOOOVE vlogbrothers! Gosh, they are just amazing and they are my role models. John is one of my most favorite authors and he is my inspiration for writing.

Someone on Tumblr asked what John's type was and he said INFP. And this post was talking about how John was talking about being INFP during a live feed.

I'm sorry that was the sound of me squee'ing myself. Which is not as dirty as it sounds.

Well, just because he says he is a type doesn't mean he is. I saw a Ne-dom, fast talking or not (I speak quickly myself, so that's not only what I'm going by).

You said you didn't even finish the video. How can you judge someones type on less than 4 minutes of seeing them. That's a ludicrous assumption to make, even if your name was Isabel Briggs Myers that would be a bold assumption to make.

Meeee. :]

Though, I agree with a few others. I'm a bit more interested in Hank's SciShow and some of his music than John's books, for example. But, then again, it's not really a competition. Plenty of respect and appreciation of nerdiness/academia to go around!
