A sad soul who is being used by others often without even realizing it. Often times people other than the "tool" realize what's going on but choose to laugh at the "tool" instead. It is often very sad as the tool usually finds out after he has been all used up and been made a fool of.

Sometimes a tool is thought of as a jerk, but is usually a nice generous guy who doesn't mind doing favors. Most of the time the tool is just going through depression or thinks that if he does things it will get people off his back.

Tools often are put down as most people don't really like them. Tools are also too stupid to know when they're being used. If you see someone being used you should help them out; most of their "friends" are often lying to them to make them look like an ass in public. Tools can be spotted by causing scenes in public, and people telling them that they're "cool".
Person 1: So that bitch Jessica was just using him like a tool for his homework?
Person 2: Yeah, he was oblivious. She messed with his head just because he would do things for her. He thought he was in love. I tried to help him out, but it just wouldn't work out. After he found out he was so embarrassed and started to cry.
Person 1: How sad. She really is a bitch.
Person 2: And to think that she went out with him knowing how much it would break his heart. I don't think she ever really liked him for who he was.
Person 1: Well at least he can learn from this.
Person 2: Yeah, he's a good guy.

The actual definition for a tool would have to be everyone if you follow the definitions of "poser." Don't kid yourself, you've tried to be someone you're not.
A tool is a gullible fool, which everyone was at one point.
So you wanna know who a tool is? Look in the mirror. Saying you're a tool because you listen to Good Charlotte? Please. You probably got made fun of for listening to them that's why you're saying it.
YOU ARE A TOOL. Thank you.

(n.) - an individual who willingly changes his or her behavior for personal gain or profit. In this context, a tool is similar to a poser, with one important distinction. Because a tool does not consider his actions beyond rudimentary cost/benefit analysis, he or she will often be co-opted by corporations or powerful interest groups to support the lame or corrupt positions held by these organizations. A tool therefore, is quite literally an instrument of the man.
Mitt Romney is a tool.

guy that likes you, but when summer comes around, needs to try and get with every girl possible, ruining the relationship you could've had together. Even tho his reasoning is he "doesnt want to cheat on you" yeah bullshit. a tool then wants you to "forget" about him for the summer and then when school starts up again, you guys can go out, basically saying , let me hook up during summer and we can be together after.. and when he breaks up with you around spring time... you know why :)
omg tyler yocom is such a tool.

a metal ish, cult ish band that kicks ass in many's opinion and plays in complex time signatures. It is criticized by many people and is criticized due to the fact that they never even took the time to try and get int tool and even though they say we jsut argue about stuff that we really dont know about, I wouldn't be talking considering if you don't like tool you probably know little to nothing about it so you should look into it. The singer is Maynard James Keenan, Bass player is Justin Chancellor, guitarist is Adam Jones, and the drummer is Danny Carey.

Someone who thinks he's cool, but he just isn't. He usually looks like a possum and says he's the man.
Pat: Meghan, I love you. I'm the fuckin' man.
Sean: He's such a tool.

1) Some who is used for the benefit of others.
2) Someone who does things so others will accept them.
People who wear aviators are tools.
People who use the word tool in daily conversation, because they think they understand what it means, are tools.
People with the initials J.D. are all tools.

a douche bag usually oblivious to whats actually going on, will act like a complete ass to look good in front of their tool posse. usually rich, steriotypicly good looking, possibly drives a hummer, nobody usually likes these people, and they all really dress alike, try to sag their pants with a hollister shirt and either short spiked or baech boy hair and flip flops.
