Being a lifetime geek, I've decided to try to define geeks for people. I'm still developing these ideas There are four kinds of geeks, two positive kinds (or "intellectuals") and two negative kinds (or "dweebs"). The positive kinds of geeks are genius geeks, or "nerds", and unique geeks, or "freaks". Genius geeks (nerds) are not necessarily all actually geniuses. However, all nerds are interested in how things work. Nerds can be interested in any intellectual pursuit, whether it be technology, literature, biology, or anything else with complexities. Unique geeks (freaks) are people who see the world in a different way. Freaks are generally interested in artistic pursuits, which can include anything from painting, drawing, film, writing, photography, theatre, music, architecture, or any other creative outlet. The negative kinds of geeks are boring geeks, or "losers", and delusional geeks, or "poseurs". Boring geeks (losers) are people who let their lives slip by as they spend all of their time doing things like playing video games, watching anime, reading comic books, etc. While most geeks (and often people in general) of all categories have an interest in these activities, only boring geeks dedicate their lives to entertaining themselves with these activities. Delusional geeks (poseurs) are people who are always trying to pretend that they're something they're not. They are always trying to impress everyone else, while never actually gaining any true substance to their personality. They typically lie often. The main difference between positive geeks (intellectuals) and negative geeks (dweebs) is that intellectuals (nerds and freaks) progress as people more quickly than the average person, while dweebs (losers and poseurs) seem to progress much more slowly than most people.
