What is Deaf?

I am curious... I have been read several blogs and watch several vlogs for past few days. I am so curious.. what does the word "Deaf" really mean? Reason I asked.. look at this.. ... their define for word "Deaf"....–adjective
1.partially or wholly lacking or deprived of the sense of hearing; unable to hear.
2.refusing to listen, heed, or be persuaded; unreasonable or unyielding

I am curious what your define of that word? How would a deaf person like yourself define a word "deaf' in your own word?

Other question about deafness... I am open this question to everyone.. to share their opinion.....there is no wrong or right answer to this question.... How much of deafness or knowledge or experience ... should be classification "deaf enough" to be ASL teacher and Deaf Leader and Role for Deaf community?
