A pseudo-intellectual is someone who is too stupid to realize they are a pseudo-intellectual. This person is well armed with defense mechanisms, is extremely caustic and passive aggressive in the interest of protecting and preserving their delusions of grandeur.
conscience: Wow... I'm reading all these definitions of pseudo-intellect and my personality completely matches their descriptions... Must boost self-esteem and let the world know how intellectual I am. I know! I'll create a pseudonym called kookoodumdum and exploit my shattered ego! There. I'm a pseudo-pseudo-intellectual. I rule.
