If someone is very intelligent, are they automatically nerds? What do you think makes someone a nerd? Is that the same as "geek" ?

A nerd is someone who values intelligence over social activity. A geek is similar is the sense that they value some sort of activity over being social. Geeks aren't necessarily smart, but nerds are.0

A nerd is a smart person who lacks social skills frequently because they are obsessive about something.
A geek originally was someone with no social skills because he was weird, he wasn't necessarily smart. The two words seem to be used interchangeably now.0
