A person that practices one-upmanship and name-dropping. This person is compelled to elevate their status by trumping the experiences of others with their own supposedly personal stories that are usually more intense, on a grander scale or connected to a famous person or event. These persons expect others to believe their stories regardless of how far-fetched or improbable.
