Someone who thinks he is smart but is actually very stupid. A "know-it-none" as opposed to a "know-it-all". In particular, people who assume their success in one area entitles them to respect in another. (etymology: a portmanteau of the words "asinine" and the name of the bona fide genius "Albert Einstein" - coined by former Jeopardy! writer Ryan Hopak.)
