Top definition
The state of being rebellious to knowledge. Intellectual deviance is most apparant today through the general teenagers' habit of mocking intelligence. "Nerd", "geek", "bookworm", etc. are certain slang-terms used by the populace to describe the intelligent. It is a subcontious fear of being surpassed by those more knowledgeable that causes this mass, ego-induced hysteria. If the knowledgable surpass one man, that man will soon become inferior, and therefore, no longer feel needed. (Feeling needed is the very definition of ego)
Those insecure children over there laughed at me because I walked into the library. I despise intellectual deviance.
