“a student who spends much time studying and has little or no social life…”
I prefer the definition at Wordsmith.org:
“An expert who studies a subject or issue thoroughly and excessively.”
See, I wouldn’t mind being that latter kind of wonk, but the former kind with no social life.. Well, that’s just not so in my case.
One of the things I feel particularly wonkish about is bylaws. Yea, I know, it’s odd for sure. But I find them fascinating and I really enjoy the coaching opportunities I get when working with groups to figure out what their bylaws should say.
