What's the definition of the word 'Nerd/Geek'?
Posted 1/31/07
Well, i started this topic because my classmates and I are called nerds/geeks and stuff like that, just because we have the highest rank (i don't want to brag) (classes in the netherlands are divided in ranks, and people in the highest rank usually become doctors etc.) and i'm kinda sick of it. Just because you're smart doesn't mean you're a geek. Well, that's what i think, and you?

Sometimes my classmates call me a geek because they see my name in the "A Honour Roll" paper "-.- Yes it annoys me >.<
Anyway, does anyone watch "Beauty and the Geek" on television?

What I think is that you shouldn't care what others label you as. Just know yourself and ignore them. Labels are pointless anyways.

Edit: Got beat.

You don't have control over them, but you have control over how words effect you, so make something positive out of it, or at the least, just ignore it.

Wiki: "It is commonly believed that the word "geek" originates with side-show "circus geeks" — performers at carnivals who swallow various live animals, live insects, and so forth. Sometimes this would extend to biting the heads off of snakes, chickens, or other living animals."

I'm considered a half nerd! lol. Naw, my friends just call me that, cuz whenever im interested in something, I go far, and research and study about that topic.

I do ignore them, but i seriously want to slap them when they laugh at me. It's not like it's serious bullying, it just really irritates me when i see their cocky faces. But well, i guess i can laugh at them over 10 years when they work in the grocery store and i've finished college.

Well... i have never been considered into the geek/nerd category by anybody at school. My sister thinks im a geek cause i like anime >_> lol. But not is school... Normally if your called a geek... its because you are like reeeeeeeally obsesive about stuff all the time, and you like live for it. I loooove video games and anime, and people consider me somebody with strange hobbies lol, but not obsesive... i know people who dont even know how to talk about variouse subjects because they got into one of these things way too much. Now THATS what could be considerd a geek.... probably

Here is how it was explained to me many years ago and I agree with these definitions.

Basically, in my mind, a nerd is someone overly interested in a partiular area (sometimes quite specific, sometimes rather broad - i.e. "technology" for somethign broad to "Gundam 0079" for something specific) and incapable of relating to and interacting with people outside of this interest.

A geek is some overly interested in a particular area but is still capable of relating to and interacting with people outside of this interest.

nerd/geeks are kewl people i wish i was one like seriously i want to get a good grade in school though but yeah don't know what it means

They call you a geek and a nerd because they don't know you. If they did, they'd call you by your real name. Don't be afraid to branch out and try different walks of life. Spend a day with the atheletes, the chemists, the musicians, the writers, the mathematicians. Spend a day with the drop outs, the pot heads, the metal heads, the meat heads, the otaku. The more stories you hear in a lifetime, the better you can appreciate a good one when its finds its way to you. If you don't like how they treat you, let them know you.
