When I hear it:

geek: into off beat things, games, electronics, things that are not trendy and or mainstream

nerd: really into something such as code reading, website designing, etc. something that requires skill because I think nerds possess higher than average academic ability.

redneck: under-educated, unaware of current events, lives off the land, does not require anything materialistic

These aren’t meant to offend

According to my husband (who resides in this relm) there is a heirarchy of Geekdom and it goes like this:

Edit: OP I agree with your image of Geek and Nerd, it aligns with the diagram lol.

I would have agreed with OP’s images before I met my Darling Husband… he is a total science geek and the smartest person I have ever met, but… he looks like a football player and I was completely blown-away by the combo!

While I love FurtureMrsTal‘s diagram, I can’t agree with it.  I am a self-described “nerd” (see the “How would you describe yourself” thread) and I don’t believe anyone would think I lack in social skills.

I support Mrs.ChubbyBunny‘s explanations of geek and nerd.
