Likened to children, a 'basic' is a term used to describe someone with attributes of idiocy, foolishness and child-like behaviour. A 'basic' commonly has little to no intelligence, and struggles to break social barriers. A 'basic' often reverts to exaggeration and deceit to over come these social barriers and gain a mild sense of acceptance within his/her friendship circles.
