    I am not the nerd type that you could think, I am another type of nerd.

    In the sentences "I am not the nerd type that you could think, I am another type of nerd." is the grammar correct?

    Thanks!

    No, it isn't. You have a comma splice, for one thing.
    "I am not the type of nerd that you think. I'm a completely different type of nerd."

    The full stop after the second "nerd" is incorrect. There should be a comma after the closing quotation marks. I would say "I'm not the type of nerd you think I am. I'm a different type of nerd".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
