I have to say i often do it, esp. when i meet people for the first time. It's not really about changing myself for people and i don't want to get into that debate. It's more about doing it for me. I do it as a kind of 'disorientating technique' to people when i first meet them. Kind of like coming on too strong and it repels them. I like to have people think they are smarter than me so I am underestimated an therefore s few steps in front of them? its not really a compromise of me, its just like throw in a few blonde moments. i.e. things like how does this can opener work? or I cant get my computer to select this etc. I have friends that are what i call "brain slutty" whom always bring that part of them when they meet people. I know that people not on their psychological level dislike them as they have made comments to me. Sure once i know someone the facade is down, but is it really wrong to do? (after typing this is sounds to *****y and nasty its really not lol) does anyone here do it? btw i am a guy so its not like I'm trying to get a guy by letting him think he is the smart "alpha male."
