What does "Nerd" mean?

A nerd is someone who does better in school than his/her classmates and wear stylish clothes. Nerds are prosecuted for their superior intellect. 99.9% of nerds are social even though they are not ecpected to. To be a nerd you have to be smart and stylish. If you wear outmoded clothes and you're smart than you're a neek, which grow up to be at least middle class nerds. Nerds are awsome. Do not get phy sical with a nerd from bedstuy or the south side. Nerds are also funny and some are popular. Some nerds look like regular people.

Dummies:Ha ha ha!
Nerd:At least I'm smart and well dressed.

Nerd - meaning

A studious and smart person who gets made fun of by haters. Nerds are not necessarily the 1960's stereo type with bottle cap glasses, suspenders, button shirts with pens in a shirt pocket, ect. Some nerds are good looking, some are smart, and some are both. Nerds are academicly advanced. However, most nerds are still socially challenged. Nerds are loners. :)

Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Galileo Galilei, Little rock 9, Alfred Binet, Carl Linnaeus, Steve Urkil the nerd.

Nerd - definition

I am a nerd. First of all, geeks are NOT nerds. They are people who often like video games or comics ect. but don't possess the intellect to be considered a nerd. Nerds are often given a bad name because of geeks that are mistaken for nerds.

Some things to know about nerds

1. Some nerds have a social life, we are not all social failures.

2. Nerds are not always ugly, we generally look normal, we only look "nerdy" in movies.

3. We are unfortunately generally not athletic, but they does not mean we're fat or weak. We are usually just uncoordinated. (Note: some nerds are athletic.)

4. Not all nerds study, we just retain information when we learn it.

5. We don't necessarily love all subjects (I do, but that's a bad example)

6. Nerd is considered to be a derogatory term, but nerds usually do better in life than jocks.

7. Most nerds love learning simply because its interesting.

The nerds you make fun of for liking school will be the doctors, engineers, and inventors of tomorrow. (For all you dumb jocks out there, those are people with the cushy jobs)

Think: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates

Nerd - slang

Someone who enjoys learning and obtaining new information in general for it's own sake, often without discrimination to different areas of knowledge. The key to recognizing a nerd is if they are completely indifferent to the application of what they learn; they are not inherently inclined to use or not to use the information.

Someone who is a nerd could also be a geek, who is passionate about highly specific interests, or a dork, who is a social outcast, but they do not have to be.

Person 1: Do you intend to do anything with your advanced degree in Russian Literature?
Person 2: I could, but honestly it's just interesting to study it. I could go my entire life without using the information I gain and still feel fulfilled.
Person 1: Wow, what a nerd.

That Nerd is my kind of person!

15223 3195


An individual who:
1. Enjoys learning
2. Does not adhere to social norms

A nerd is *not*:
1. A geek. The circles overlap, but they are not the same.

2. Someone who wears fake "nerdy" glasses
3. Someone who wears suspenders, fake glasses, and bowties on "nerd" day.
4. Someone who thinks of themself as a nerd, yet cannot hold an intelligent debate.
5. If you are reading this article to determine whether you are a nerd or not, you are not. Nerds do not need to look up the definition of "nerd", it is a label with no consequence whatsoever, and nerds have better things to do than play along with societal stereotypes. That being said, if you merely want to see what people think of when they think of the word "nerd", because human thought processes, societal constructs, and philosophy are so interesting, consider yourself a nerd.

Synonyms include booksmart

Nerd is only a label. It doesn't matter whether you are one or are not one. Nobody cares either way, and you should not, either.
