The word jerk was a common insult in Federation Standard, often used as a noun by Humans, characterizing those with poor social skills. Such was the case (for a library computer) when the Enterprise-suffering a systems wide malfunction-had ship quartermaster return Captain Kirk's cleaned duty tunics with, "KIRK IS A JERK," written on the backs. (TAS episode: "The Practical Joker")

In Tellarite culture, the mode of behavior of a well-adjusted Tellarite individual could closely be described with this word, leading Tellarites to take it as a compliment when they are referred to as being jerks. (TOS novel: The Rift)
