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.

a social class, however we spread into other social classes as well. In fact, usually the only official geek social class is a small ring of friends.
There are suce a large variety of geeks, its impossible to find how many there are. The most all-including definition is that a geek will demand on being called a geek, not a nerd. A geek can be the most popular person in school or the most outcast one. The only more precise description is that the average geek will be extremely cynical towards any new school policy. If you came here to find out if someone's a geek, you'll never know. I'm only working on personal experiences. I'm a geek, so I know at least a little bit. anyone who is a geek will be able to know if anyone else is a geek.
Joe was walking down the halls, attempting to find friends. He finally found Frank, a nice enough guy who was relatively popular. Joe, however, identified him as a geek. Then he realized that, according to the urban dictionary entry, he was therefore a geek. He also realized that this scenario was the example. Would it follow him forever? He felt horrible. The only way was to kill himself. He found a pen and stabbed it in his eye.
--a very geeky example--
