Talkative, self-important nerdy men (usually age 30 and up) who, through an inability to properly decode social cues, mistake others' strained tolerance of their blather for evidence of their own charm.
Stop being such a neckbeard.

Any human who regularly wears:
A pinstriped fedora
T-shirts with strange metallic looking mid 2000's middle schooler student's idea of a tattoo designs
In-congruently flashy metal jewelry

Interests include My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, katanas, unrequited affection

Will refer to others as sir/madam/m'lady/sire/miss/overly formal honorifics

Frequently use the word "shall"

Many profile pictures poorly photoshopped to change eye color and background to look more "demonic"

Does not necessarily have to have a beard or any facial hair, though it is typical.
He's definitely nice, but his fedora and pony collection lead me to believe he may be a neckbeard.

Should I be concerned?

Brad: Oh, not really. He's harmless, but he might cry and make you feel guilty when you won't touch him.

Get a Neckbeard mug for your brother Josรฉ.
A socially inept individual. Smug/self-important for no reason, or shy unless with fellow Neckbeards. When spoken to, will quickly reveal extremely limited social experience. To a normal person they will be definitively near-autistic or aspy.

Visual cues:

1. Fedora.
2. Trenchcoat.
3. Overdressed.
3. Greasy hair
4. Ponytail.
5. Acne at any age.
6. Dyed hair.
7. Shitty beard.
8. Pedostache.
9. Wears all black.
10. Wears all red.
11. Odd eye behavior, similar to low self esteem (avoiding, darting, or over-compensational staring).
12. Hand placement. Instead of pockets, usually leave them at sides or cross them.

You can assume:
-live in their parent's basement
-watch anime
-read manga
-inflated, hollow self esteem
-will laugh at things that arent very funny
-are or were obese
-educated slightly better than the average person
-will NOT understand the Neckbeard concept
-card games
-board games
-hasnt bathed in days, and if you get close, you can confirm, but if you do they will think you're making a sexual pass at them and excrete more stench.

Neckbeards are often found in acting, chior, or other socially maladjusted arts.

The majority of Neckbeards come from middle class white America. Lower class learned how to live while young, and upper class doesnt have the time to, or has better things to do than be a pile of shit.
