How did you come to this conclusion, professor?
I noted they didn't just think I was a smug, overcompensating douche, they thought about half the human race was. Chances are if you meet assholes everywhere you go, you are the asshole.

Actually no one has ever called me even conceited directly to my face, (well, not since high school) much less smug or overcompensating but people have implied it from time to time by manner. It will shock you to learn in real life people are much more likely to remark on my lack of egoism.
