Your brilliant ideas, your streams of consciousness, the epiphanies that change your life, are important and essential to you. For everyone else, for your girlfriend and for the guys you hang with, you're just rambling. So keep it short or don't let on anything at all. Want to engage in conversation? Want to share ideas? Don't. Nobody cares to talk about anything. They want the quiet intellectual. It's enough for them to just believe you're a smart guy (whether you are or not). So, disappointing as it is, just shut up. Trust me.
