1. one whose kewlness is measured by him or herself alone -- often taking the fashionista-mentality and skewing it 37 degree to the left.

2. one whose insane brainmass is a burden which causes slackerish behavior, the inability to act ala the underground man, and a fiendish desire for sex and booze that serve to deaden the atlasianic load of said brainmass.
yo, that ain't a skid, that's a nerd.

All of the definitions above. Someone who vents their bitterness on Urban Dictionary like a passive-aggressive wimp because they were always chosen last in gym class.

They have a few false beliefs, such as convincing themselves that they are geniuses (watching anime doesn't make you a genius. John Nash was a genius.) and that their social ineptitude is other people's fault. They use the old "I will be more successful" mantras like it isn't an obvious defense mechanism, and is a very broad assertion that isn't true.
Some nerds alleviate their insecurities by refusing to believe that people who have actually had sex before can accomplish something in life, too.

General: A nerd is a person that that is generally defined as a social outcast. Nerds are usually defined as, "one whose IQ is greater than their weight". However, nerds are not always smart. They may vary in different ways. Read below for a detailed definition.

Age range: Could be ages 5-100. most commonly ages 12-24.

Physical Traits of a common nerd: This may vary. They tend to have unatractive qualities or characteristics like, Really skinny build, or really fat, Combed over hair or frizzy hair, acne, thick glasses, big eyebrows, no muscular traits whatsoever, freckles, Buck teeth, braces, carrying science books, pale complextion, (from being seldom outside, high voice, tend to drool often (because their mouth often hangs open), crappy shoes, have overalls -(however rare today), have high striped socks pulled all the way up, a pocket protector, have a Bowtie, or a plaid shirt, and have their hands clamped up like Seals.

Mental traits of a common nerd: Generally, a nerds behaviour often appears odd to others, and nerds rarely notice their odd or eccentric behaviour. For example, most nerds tend to not be interested in any sport(s) whatsoever. They are most commonly REALLY into video games and computers so much, that it becomes an obsession, and they dedicate their lives to it.

Games are the biggest thing amongst nerds, especially online games such as, Counter-Strike, Starcraft, Diablo 2, and dungeons and dragons. Don't get me wrong, nerds are in EVERY online game, just those are they key games that nerds tend to "flow" into.

Movies they are intersted in could be Star wars, Star trek. Lord of the rings,etc. Taste in movies is generally always a sci-fi genre.

Music that a sterotypical nerd would listen to is techno, or a tune with little or no beat or rythum, even though many nerds have better interests in music than that.

Generally bullied physically and verbally by popular kids, and jocks. Nerds tend to have extremely poor social skills, therefore becoming unpopular and disliked by others. Most nerds tend to call normal people "noobs" because they on't excell at computer gaming skill as much as they do, but most of them don't even have a girlfriend, or a social life, which means they are "noobs" in the real world.

Positive attributes of nerds: It may be the sad truth, but the world today is run by nerds! (well, the smart ones who actually do something with their life) They have dramatically changed our world today. Without them, there wouldn't be, satellite, Computers, video games, or internet. That's right this was actually all created and done by nerds. Notice the richest man in the history of the world happens to appear as a nerd? (Bill Gates) It may be fun to critisize nerds today, (even though I sort of am) But some of them may end up being your boss one day!
Urkal, Napolean Dynamite and George Mcfly in back to the future in the past are great examples of nerds.

Stereotypical Conversations ( Well the unrealistic but ,meh)

These conversations are not true, but what a person thinks of a sterotypical nerd.

Nerd to Nerd:
Nerd 1: Salutations and greetings fellow earthling
Nerd 2: And to you, I got a new calculator watch that can fit up to 9 digits now!
Nerd 1: Well I upgraded my harddrive yesterday, so my PC is running 0.7% faster on Counter Strike!
Nerd 2: thats really cool! but i still got more head shots than you!
Nerd 2: I can't take this (Cries)

Nerd to Normal Person:
Nerd: Have you head of the Science fair coming up? Im so exited that I'm gonna drool all over your clothes.
Person: Back off you dweeb
Nerd: I'm gonna get my friends and PWN j00 online
Person: But you have no friends.
Nerd : oh yeah.. that too...
Person : HaHa NERD!!!
Person in background : What a loser!! Go win a starcraft tournament you weirdo!

Confident Nerd to Jock:
Nerd : Hello Jock! What appears to be your boggle today?
Jock : huh? Oh yeah I'm gonna kick your nerdy ass
Nerd : You may be on the football, rugby, wrestling team, and be 6'4" and 230 lbs, but im on the elite Counter- Strike team! So I have this toy lazer Gun! (pull's out a 6 year old child's lazer gun)
Jock : (punches Nerd in the face)
Nerd : (looses 8 and a half teeth, breaks his nose, gets spinal injuries, internal bleeding and ruptures spleen)

Nerds are ugly low-self esteem subterranean human beings that usually spend hours of the day in their parents basement.

someone who is totally geeky

well one problem with the nerd section, is that most ppl who commented called themselves nerds. and of course only said good things about themselves. first of all, nerds dont have to be smart, back in middle school i wanted to be a nerd actually. i am very smart but of course i was kicked out of the advanced classes because i didnt do my homework, and thus i flunked. nerds dont have to be smart, anyone can make straight A's if they study for every test and do all their homework and extra credit assignments. nerds are stupid. why the heck should anyone do a ton of work that wont help them?
they dont know more then the rest of us, they just meorize stuff for tests, and brag about how smart they are. guss what, meorizing isnt learning. "i dont have no candy" thats a double negative. i came up with double negatives before i entered kindergarden, i know ppl knew about double negatives before i was born, but i still came up with the same ideal without anyone telling me, thats called being smart, not having lame parents that ground you for getting B's (wich is what motavates nerds) and they do conform, they try and fit in to the political correct person, some with straight A's that goes to college, so that they will still only have a average joba nd make average money. everyone goes to college now days, so your not succsesffull cuz your a fag lawyer, a sucsess would be writing a novel abourt this crappy country and becoming a millionair overnight.nerds suck.
geeks are not nerds, their just ppl that want to be popular but suck at it, ppl that brag about halo in front of the whole class so that ppl will think their cool, but then everyone just thinks their geeky. their wanna be preps. nerds are ppl that think their smarter then everyone just because they take time to do their homework. nerds do not make invintions that change the world. ppl like bill gates do. and he wasnt a nerd. albert einstien wasnt a nerd, he actually failed a couple of years throughout gradeschool and college, bill gates didnt attend college, galleio was a below average student who was going to drop out, but then his teacher noticed his unique ability at doing math. you see world changing devices and theorys, come from below average ppl, who dont care about being smart, but instead like to ask questions about the universe that everyone else is afriad to. are you afraid to wonder if america is free? are you afriad to ask is saten was so horrible, or if god was afraid of him? i personally dont think saten was good, and i belive, no wait i know god was right, im just saying ask questions that ppl wouldnt dare ask, (not religious ones) and have confidence, if you belive u will be a millionairr, then u can be one! nerds suck.
im going to strain myself with loads of homework so that someday ill make it into college and end up as another average person making a around 100,000 a year, and do the same crap day after day, while another revolutionist writes a book and becomes rich, because his inteligence is high, and im just a nerd that is good at memorizing stuff
