Say things which are clearly wrong and push it as fact. That always gives a fun reaction

It's ok if people are better than you, chances are whatever you are good at, there are millions of people in the world better than you at it. Try to learn something from that person, and if the person is actually a fraud or an idiot, move on and do something else.

I start telling them boring facts to prove to them how much better I am than them.

I either ignore them or I am rude to them (I don't care how smart you are. I won't put up with your snobbery). Depends on my mood.

I change the subject to something interesting.

After all, a real intellectual is capable of sustaining conversation on a multitude of topics.

Just walk away. The person's not really an intellectual. Purpose of intelligence is to improve life for yourself and others. Not to make others feel worse.

Pretend that I'm interested in what they're talking about until they stop talking.

I usually give them the benefit of the doubt and try to find something interesting to talk about, because it's difficult to know whether or not they're actually trying to be condescending. If it becomes obvious that they're being an ass, I get snippy, verbally confront them about their attitudes, and/or walk away.

Usually come back at them with some remark which backfires on them making them look like an idiot. One guy started acting clever with me on the internet saying I was stupid and an idiot for something to do with a game to which I replied 'Sorry I'm not as good at a game as you are. Well done with the 'whole arguing with a complete stranger on the internet' deal. Feel better?'.
