What do you think of when you hear “geek” and “nerd”?
But my husband is the exact opposite. So I thought this would be an interesting spin-off from the redneck/hick conversation.

I agree with your husband, nerds are cooler

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.
