The people I know tend to resent intellectuals and call them "pretentious". I don't really resent them, I think they can be interesting.

Jeff came off as very smart and high IQ but the more I was with him, I realized how dumb he was and deluded in his mind about how our country works. Thinks our gov. hires someone to assassinate you if you know something he doesn't want you to know. He had a lot of other weird thoughts too. He might have been schizophrenic my mom says because you couldn't have a normal conversation with him and his words were incoherent she says, and he had this weird look on his face and in his eyes when he be at their house and it looked like the look Dakota Fanning had in Hide and Seek when she was traumatized by the death of her mother. He also moved his hands around as he spoke. Plus his thinking was really weird and schizos have really weird thoughts that are out there and Jeff's thoughts were really weird.

Oh God, my step-brother thinks he is the next Einstein yet he doesn't know what diagrams have to do with blueprints, he said that himself! 8O

And he is supposed to go into Automotive Engineering! God help those who drive any car he builds.

People think I'm smart but they don't see how dumb I really am. :lol:

That describes a moron in one of my lab classes exactly. We haven't done a single experiment that he hasn't screwed up through his own careless and idiotic mistakes... and all the while he tries to lecture us on how to do the lab!

Often.
However if people were much closer to knowing the extent of their shortcomings, they'd end up much more unhappy.
