Most guys don’t understand how attractive it is when they drop knowledge nuggets, but it is even more attractive when these knowledge nuggets are subtle and unexpected. Pretentiousness is a massive deal-breaker (it’s cool that you read Zizek’s latest essay on whatever-it-was, but it lessens your culture capital when you spend time making sure that the whole world knows you read it). On the other hand, it is swoon-worthy when that dude sitting in the back of your classroom opens his mouth for the first time all semester and goes on an impassioned rant about cognitive dissonance. At one point, you weren’t sure if he was literate, but now you’re, like, pretty much in love with him.
