    dork = socially inept nerd = has a nerdy hobby or interest such as sci-fi shows, comic book collecting, etc... Typically knows a lot of useless information. geek = technical/scientific version of the nerd, often one person can be described as both a nerd and a geek. dweeb, all of the above.

  • Well, a nerd is someone who is very clever and is proud to show it, like showing everyone in the class they got 100 % or something and the other people get jealous so they found a word to describe them that sounds bad. Nerds normally have friends, but they probably aren't considerd very popular.

    A dork is basically someone who is usually a wannabe, someone who tries to hard but looks very uncool. Usually they have no friends.

    A dweeb is very similar to a dork but they aren't wannabe's, they are just uncool. Usually they have no friends.

    A geek is someone who dresses very unfashionably (like high shorts or glasses) and doesn't care what everyone else thinks. They normally are considerd losers but they have friends, other geeks.

    I didn't use a dictionary for these, just my own knowledge.

    Conclusion: It appears that all four types are all pretty much the same. So, a geek is all three of the other types of individual as well. There, how is that for an answer?...lol. Now, because I could find the answers, relay them to you and form a conclusion, does that make me a any of those. I sure hope not, because otherwise I am going to shoot myself...lol. Cya later hon.
