Geek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The word geek is a slang term, with different meanings ranging from "a computer expert or enthusiast" to "a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts", with a general pejorative meaning of "a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual".[1] This word comes from English dialect geek, geck: fool, freak; from Low German geck, from Middle Low German.

Nerd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Nerd is a derogatory slang term for an intelligent but socially awkward and obsessive person who spends time on unpopular or obscure pursuits, to the exclusion of more mainstream activities.[1][2][3] Nerds are considered to be awkward, shy, and unattractive.[4] Thus, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by others, or will tend to associate with a small group of like-minded people.
