Writing Inspiration: Genre writer stereotypes

What genre do you most like to write in? What are some of the stereotypes of writers in those genres (For example, science fiction writers are nerdy, wear thick glasses, and take great umbrage at anyone who misstates a scientific fact.)?

How do you stack up against those stereotypes? Are there deeper traits or qualities of writers in that genre that they share (such as science fiction writers being inquisitive, willing to explore esoteric ideas, and share a deep interest in science)?
