Does Pretending to Be Socially Awkward Make a Person Cool?

Someone on Quora asked:

Being a recluse or moron has almost been portrayed synonymously on TV/movies (Sherlock, The Social Network, Tony Stark, House) with being smart. Does Pretending to Be Socially Awkward Make a Person Cool?

This was my response:

No. It makes you socially awkward.
