Oh, so THAT'S the problem

From a recent post on Scott Adam's blog (yes, the Dilbert guy) about how to act smarter than you really are, and make others think you're the mensa member you're probably not:
It’s important to agree with people if you want them to think you are a genius. For most people, the definition of smart is “Thinks exactly like me but even more so.”

If you think that disagreeing and offering excellent reasons for your thinking will change anyone’s mind, you might be new on this planet.
Ahh. That explains a lot.

I suppose this goes in the same file as the "traffic definitions:
jerk--anyone driving significantly faster than I am
idiot--anyone driving significantly slower
