Might makes right, show them that actions hurt much more than words.

Just ask "Why are you being so uppity? If you're so smart, then shouldn't you know that you should use your smarts to sound interesting in fun to other people? Don't sneer and tell me that you probably know something really complicated an boring that I don't know! Sell your smarts to me."
If you're smart, say with wide eyes and excited hand gestures "Hey, I know this cool little thing about this or that, and I want you to know about the thing too!"
If they say they know, and you know more, you can exclaim "Oh wow, you know about this or that too? What do think about the thing that's related to this or that", and then you can talk together about this or that, adding to your pool of knowledgeable friends.

If you know something most people understand, don't talk to them about it like "Hey, you heard about this or that right?" and they say "what are talking about?" You can be like "Oh sorry. Forget I said anything. What's going on with you?"

I won't even listen, I don't give a darn =.="
I guess...an addition to make sure they know nobody likes them, to have the words "This -insertname- person is the most boring boaster in the world, very SMART - not." written on the chalkboard or whiteboard

hehe, I hate people who rub it in your face that thye're better, cos they're not. They are freaking LAME.

Person: "Did you know that when you put the fro-"
Me: "Don't you think the world would be better if everyone was smart and not so stupid?"
Person: "You're not listen-"
Me: "I feel smart right now."
Person: "When the-"
Me: "I wish I had really big headphones that could mute outside noises."

No, I lie. :/ The best way is to ignore them, or just act really annoying.

I usually will just argue with people if I disagree with them. I love a good argument.

Other than that, if I really don't like them (insultingly so), I will usually go make up an excuse to leave and just fume about them for a little while. Maybe listen to some Modest Mouse.

Remember, living well is the best revenge.

Give them the validation they seek then turn it around but giving very little attention to the topic.

For example:
Cool Guy A: "So I think blah blah should be so and so let me tell you teh storiez"
Cool Guy B: "Oh cool story bro [look away and talk to someone else or something of that nature]

Problem solved. The fundamental idea is to NOT give them the attention they are looking for AFTER 'validating' them.

Use large words randomly, but not as they are meant to be used, answering rhetorical questions, and spinning change on the table.

Flirt...at high intensity.




After all,

if said individual is smarter than me
I say, "prove it".

And if they manage to "prove it",
then it's on.

"Boring intellectual" is an oxymoron.

Intellectual people never bore me they do have some kind of knowledge after all and i always was eager to learn.I also never had the problem that any of them would have thought they are better than i am but maybe that was cause they knew that we could have an intellectual exchange rather than a lecture?
Stupid people now that's the real problem they have nothing of value to say but still never shut up lol

Btw i do agree that Book smart isn't everything but it sure as hell is part of the whole picture.
