Definition #68213 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 is a nerd/geek (demonstrates esoteric intense interests at the cost of social acceptance) according to standard/within culture x2 with nerdy/geeky interests x3
notes Modeled on the definition of mugle. Some degree of (at least budding) expertise might be implied, but it is not truly necessary. There just has to be a degree of social rejection or isolation and an intense interest about (a) narrow and somewhat obscure subject matter(s). A nerd need not always be socially disconnected, but it should happen at least where x3 is involved or the interest becomes relevant/apparent. On the other hand, nerdiness/geekiness is also a personality (or a trait thereof), some sense, it never does not apply if it ever applies; but there are contexts wherein certain traits do not really emerge/reveal themselves readily. The intensity of interest in x3 should be judged to be excessive and abnornal, to the point of social separation, by/relative to x2.
