One of four titles used to classify someone based on their technical and social skills. The other three titles are nerd, dork, and normie. The difference between the four titles can be easily shown in table form:

................ Technical ...... Social
Title ............ Skills ......... Skills
---------- ---------------- ------------
Normie ......... No ............. Yes
Geek ........... Yes ............. Yes
Nerd ............ Yes ............. No
Dork ............ No .............. No

Normie: A normal person. Blah.

Geek: An outwardly normal person who has taken the time to learn technical skills. Geeks have as normal a social life as anyone, and usually the only way to tell if someone is a geek is if they inform you of their skills.

Nerd: A socially awkward person who has learned technical skills due to the spare time they enjoy from being generally neglected. Their technical knowledge then leads normies to neglect them even further, leading to more development of their technical skills, more neglection, etc. This vicious cycle drives them even more into social oblivion.

Dork: A person who, although also socially awkward, doesn't have the intelligence to fill the void with technical pursuits, like a nerd, and is forced to do mindless activities. Almost always alone. Usually with an XBox. Like playing Halo. All day. Every day. Not even understanding how the Xbox is making the pretty pictures on the screen. Very sad.
If you met me at a party, you would have no idea that I enjoy finite element analysis-based inviscid flow modelling using computational fluid dynamics. That's because I'm a geek.

Someone well-versed in a science, especially insofar as computers are concerned. Many have long hair, sleek typing fingers, and slender builds from not getting much exercise. Also frequently interested in RPGs, cyberpunk culture, and obscure programming languages.
Computer geeks are so sexy! Their braininess, their long hair, their cute glasses, their ability to code for hours on end, their geekspeak, their innate sweet shyness, their *ahem* attentiveness... the list goes on... *sigh* Computer geeks - gotta love 'em!

Un popular people who no one likes, and who don't care because they have an IQ higher than most of the school jocks can count and because in 15 years they will be earning more than five times as much money as said jocks. (Note: This definition is not biased at all. What gave you that idea?)
The geek Jake used to make fun of in high school was on the front page, surrounded by money. Jake considered hitting him up for money, then decided to find some other way to support his heroin addiction.

A Geek Should NEVER be Confused With a Nerd. Geeks are different in that they do possess social skills, albeit Bizarre ones. Geeks like Star Trek, etc, but also have friends usually, among the mosher/goth community, if not other geeks. A geek is usually physically weak, but his/her goth/mosher friends will often stand up for him/her, as the geek usually puts his friends first. They have a pathological hatred of Townies, Preps}, and Chavs, and tend to have good taste in music i.e. Punk. They do not get on With Nerds, but will unite with them to pick on dorks, unfortuneately.
Joey Ramone was a geek and was picked on, but he became a Rock Star and a legend.
If the Geeks were to Unite, Millions of Chavs would die. Horribly.

A geek is not a nerd.
A geek is obsessive over anything and everything: television shows (including Star Wars, Harry Potter and Doctor Who) it can be from comics, the internet and often consoles, pc games or related topics.

The geek will know everything about the given subject but despite this will have few problems socially.

However, in brief, a nerd applies to somebody who is a computer genius or enjoys maths,science or ICT to a large extent
Wow, John is such a geek all he ever talks about is Doctor Who!

Jill is not a geek- she's a nerd- she spends all her time on her computer

The top of the food chain in academic society. They often times end up being the boss of those who picked on them in school, get the best jobs, the best women, and the best standard of living.
I should have treated that geek better in school, because now he's raping my ass.
