Who is a GEEK?


GEEK by definition:

  • A definition common among self-identified geeks is: “one who is primarily motivated by passion,” indicating somebody whose reasoning and decision-making is always first and foremost based on his personal passions rather than things like financial reward or social acceptance. Geeks do not see the typical “geeky” interests as interesting, but as objects of passionate devotion. The idea that the pursuit of personal passions should be the fundamental driving force to all decisions could be considered the most basic shared tenet among geeks of all varieties. Geeks consider such pursuits to be their own defining characteristic

  • A person who is interested in technology, especially computing and new media. Comparable with the classic definition of hacker. The most competent person within a group or enterprise is sometimes called an alpha geek

  • A person who relates academic subjects to the real world outside of academic studies — for example, using multivariate calculus to calculate the volume of a cake at a party. 😀
