    Nerds are people who are clever, rather obsessive about Sci Fi & other collectables, but rather introverted and social outcasts.

    Geeks are people who are clever, obsessive about Sci Fi, but not completely introverted. Different but rather social too.

    Dorks are those who are not clever, very introverted, but love Sci Fi. Like nerds they're also social outcasts.

    For me it has nothing to do with looks.
    Basically, it's someone who has good academic skills but feels insecure in social situations. Which is not bad. It's just a disadvantage in many academic/professional fields...

    Nerd is an imaginary concept, and just another personality type.

    Ewan hit the nail almost on the head. Its not necessarily Sci Fi. It can be obsessing about anything ie: you can get english geeks, computer geeks etc... I like to think of myself as a computer geek, rather than nerd. Id say a lot of people here are geeks as well. I have known one nerd though. My Sci Fi is limited to movies/Futurama, so the typical male really.
