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.

Basically, anyone who's into ANYTHING besides testosterone fueled recreational or professional activities, IE, sports, hiphop music, drinking or street racing. If it's an intellectual interest, one that requires more than a 3rd grade education to understand, you can bet that it has geek followers.

A Geek is some one of a high intelligent who is interested in technology and electronics, not to be confused with a nerd who is simply interested in this of intellect like mathematics, science, or Dungeons and Dragons.

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.

The modern interpretation of geek is someone who has a strong interest and enthusiasm towards a particular generalized subject, or a specific segment of that subject. There is no restriction on the types of subject that would qualify someone as being a geek on that subject. The interest may be strictly observational, but could also be participatory.

A "nerd" is sometimes used interchangeably with "geek". But more accurately, a nerd is a type of geek (commonly, but not entirely, restricted to interests involving academics or fantasy) who has difficulty communicating coherently with others outside the realm of their own interest.
The subject of a geek's interest can be absolutely anything, such as cars, video games, live theater, movies, music, technology, etc. Or the interest could be focused on a specific segment, such as a type of car, a style of theater, a genre of movies, a style of music, an area of technology, etc.

A music geek's participation, for example, may be limited to just watching musical performances, or actively playing an instrument.

The largest, and most vocal, collection of people who have a strong interest and enthusiasm towards a particular subject would be sports geeks.

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.
