As a nerd, I wasn't so much influenced by Mr Spock as my nerdliness was reinforced. However, a few characters helped, and continue to shape my character.
I watched reruns of a very old show, the original Dragnet, hearing Sgt Joe Friday: "Just the facts, ma'am" though I normally remind people that "brevity's the soul of wit." While I learned the latter phrasing in high school, the Dragnet version is what lives in my gut.
Of course, there's the influence of Homer J Simpson, who's a survivor, and has done remarkably well considering his limitations. I'm happy with that, with only the reservation that I'm feeling a bit like Grandpa Simpson these days.
Finally, I don't want to understate the influence of Mr Ed, the talking horse, as we see in the show lyrics:
People yakkity yak a streak and waste your
time of day
But Mister Ed will never speak unless he has something to say.
