I guess I have a tendency to make other people feel dumb in conversation. I'm pretty sure I would hate someone who acted like I do since I wouldn't know that person's actual intentions. While it doesn't seem to be a big deal to people who I've talked to about it, who knows how many potential friends/girls I'm missing out on? I know my speaking vocabulary is larger than most peoples, but I'm assuming it has more to do with my body language and general attitude. I inform myself about a huge assortment of topics and I feel like with that comes the baggage that I feel more generally informed than other people. Lately, I've been trying to curb this by pretending to be ignorant about some things and trying to coax other people to speak more without interjecting even if I know they're wrong. Social situations with new people I meet have seemed to go smoother this way, but I feel like this change is too superficial to be lasting. Any thoughts/suggestions?
