An individual who has tendencies to become obsessive about their interest and Hobbies. Nerd will usually become obsessed with certain genres, TV shows, films, books, video games, or technology and will involve them/it in as much of their lives as they can, even using obscure references to their interests in conversation.
They will re-watch episodes and movies and re-read books multiple times and follow the series closely. They will buy all the related merchandise, often collecting and keeping it in mint-condition. They will attend conventions, commonly while dress as their favourite characters.
There is a social stigma towards nerds, particularly in schools. Since nerds tend to obsess over particular things, usually things that are unpopular, they will often go unaware of current popular trends and are view by others to be uncool for their alternative interests.
Nerds are commonly viewed as very intelligent due to their hunger for information.
"That Dexter is such a nerd. He's always talking about star wars and other sci-fi stuff."
"I here he also goes to conventions all the time and will dress up as characters from movies"
"What a Nerd"
word of the day: December 10, 2010
One whose IQ exceeds his weight.
An individual persecuted for his superior skills or intellect, most often by people who fear and envy him.
An 'individual', i.e. a person who does not conform to society's beliefs that all people should follow trends and do what their peers do. Often highly intelligent but socially rejected because of their obesssion with a given subject, usually computers. Unfortunately, nerds seem to have problems breeding, to the detriment of mankind as a whole.
"Nerds are clearly superior to us in every way.. Let's worship them as our Gods"
A stereotypical label used to describe a person that is socially inadequate. A four letter word, but a six figure income.
Think Bill Gates, but typically on a smaller scale.
A person who gains pleasure from amassing large quantities of knowledge about subjects often too detailed or complicated for most other people to be bothered with.
Often mistaken for Geeks, who aspire to become nerds, yet lack the intelligence, and end up giving nerds a bad name due to their poor social skills.
Non-nerds are often scared of nerds, due to their detailed knowledge, and therefore seemingly high levels of intelligence - and subsequently denegrate them as much as possible as often as possible.
Nerds exist covertly within the fabric of society, often choosing to 'nerd it up' in private or in the company of fellow nerds. It is for this reason they are feared the most - unlike geeks, who are easily identified, nerds can only be found out when casual conversation reaches a subject that they like nerding.
Geek: "I am a nerd"
Nerd: "Let's bash this nerd"
Nerd: "That'll teach you to go playing with my tesla coil"
That Nerd is my kind of person!
the group of people who will most likely make a life changing invention that will radically change the world. the computer was invented by a nerd. the macintosh/apple and windows were invetned by nerds. jocks and normal people have no claim to civilization except for being the hard labor. nerds actually do the thinking. so jocks, fuck you, and go eat your steroids
Nerds created almost everything that civilzation needs, such as computers, calculators, windows, etc.
