It has been proposed by someone using this dictionary that a nerd is simply a lesser geek; for example, one who is very brainy, but without social skills (which a geek, apparently, would possess). I submit for contemplation the definitions of both nerd and geek as I have always understood them--a nerd is a very brainy, generally socially inept person who leans toward bookish pursuits, such as the reading and analysis of, well, 18th century books, while a geek is much the same, but with an affinity for technology/computers. Either may enjoy anime, comic books, the Internet, and/or the company of other nerds/geeks (among many other interesting and engaging pastimes).
Amanda is such a nerd. She's always reading her English literature textbook for fun.

Julie is such a geek. She's always fiddling with her computer.

A stereotypical label a group of intellectually depraved peers often maintain on select examples of promising, brilliant individuals too busy with academic and scholastic endeavors to indulge in the superficial trivialities of seeking social approval or popularity.

As such, the group of good-for-nothing trash provide themselves with a crude rationalization of their position in the social strata.

The richest man in the world is also the biggest nerd. He could have ANY chick he wants, and could have you assasinated in a minute if he wanted to.
20 years down the line, will it truly matter if you were "popular"?

Do you think it will matter 20 years down the line if you were studying computer science/physics/economics 4 hours a day? Yes.

Do you think it will matter 20 years down the line whether you were popular or not? No.

A nerd, in simple definition, is a person with poor social skills who is very intelligent and creative. Although the word "Nerd" has only been recently used, the species has been around for centuries.

They are persecuted because of their "social deficiency" and intelligence. However, true nerds do not care about this, since they have their own sense of what is cool.

They tend to be loners and egotistical people who embed themselves in things such as computer skills, art, music, books, plays etc to make up for their lack of status.

Although a nerd may have a few non-nerd associates, the nerd's only true friends will be other nerds; and additionally, nerds have only been known to mate with their own species.

The natural enemy of the nerd is the goth
A true Nerd does not need friends, for he always his his mind.
