Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

Being called all the above by both guys and girls (mostly the latter), I have always wondered what it meant to be labeled as such (mostly nerd and geek; once or twice dork).

But thanks to Cecilia and according to Ask Yahoo!, I finally have my answers:

  • Nerd - people of above-average intelligence who place little importance on their appearance. Nerds are often aware of their status, but they don't mind. In fact, many take pride in the putdown, as it means they're smart and not wrapped up in superficial worries.
  • Geek - like nerds, geeks are smart, but they tend to focus more on technology. As Urban Dictionary explains, these are the people you make fun of in high school and later work for as an adult.
  • Dork - biggest insult of the three. There's no way you can spin it into something positive. After all, even the dictionary writes that dorks are "stupid" people. And to make matters worse, dorks assume they're cool. Oh, and they smell, too. now I will know when I am being insulted. =)
