To help u understand "Geek" the hierarchy of geek goes as follows:

GEEK~ has the interest and intelligence to do what he wants, but no particular style- geeks can be anyone. You will someday work for them. Often has bad grades.

NERD~ Has both the interest and intelligence, but is bogged down by his nerdy, outsider style. They will work for your company, and do all the work, but never show up for meetings or get a raise. Strait-A

DORK~ Just the crappy pants up to high, taped glasses, wanna-be style without the intelligence or even interest in things like real video games, manga, or computers. NOTE- often possess "wanna-be" interest in theses subjects.
Remember that guy who tried to tell u about the latestest physics engines for ragdoll style games? You punched him in the face? Nerd.

The geek was the sniper who kicked ur ass at call of duty the other day, probably while writing an zine and burning an effigy of bill gates.

A person of high intelligence who typically does not fit into popular social groups. Geeks tend to make friends with other social outcasts with similar hobbies and/or interests.
That geek is pretty smart, but he always gets teased by the preppies and jocks.

A person who knows almost everything about subjects that interest them (such as video games, anime, movies, etc.), but are socially indistinguishable from everyone else.

Commonly confused with dork and nerd, but is very different.
"I just found out my boyfriend can name all the different Pokemon and what their moves are! He's such a geek!"

Geeks don't have to be smart, unlike nerds, they are usally people who enjoy video games, comic books, the internet, etc. They are sometimes also defined as socially awkward people.

I am geek so i know how do desribe them , geek tend enjoy thing that are consider unpopular (for me its Star Wars , World of warcraft etc.) Geeks do not have to be smart , that would be a nerd, both nerds and geeks have friends but a geeks friends would probably say "Hey Albert i just got PvP Epic Armor on my Gnome warrior!" while a nerds friend would say "Hey Albert i just Got a A+ on my math exam.
Geek - Video games , Sci- Fi stuff

Many people think that a geek is someone who is mainly interested in computers or comics and lacks adequate social skills.

This is wrong.

A geek was originally a member of a circus who at one time or another had homosexual experiences with someone else. Obviously this word and many others have changed.

As previously said, a geek seems to mean someone who invests a large amount of time into either technical subjects or things related to comics, video games and/or science fiction and fantasy subjects. There are many more parts of being a geek though.

A geek is someone who places a large amount of time into anything - as long as it can be said that somebody places an extraordinary amount of time into a certain subject they are geeks. Ergo, someone who is heavily invested into music, movies, or porn is a geek. This definition doesn't especially attack any group. Nay, it puts everybody on the same level as everybody is a geek. History buffs are geeks, as well as Beliebers. One doesn't have to look at themselves in shame when they consider themselves geeks, but as people with a passion that they are proud of and aren't ashamed to admit.
"That person is such a geek; they are interested in (insert subject)" so much."
