Back in school, I treated Science and Social Studies differently from my other subjects. If I didn't know the material, I simply didn't it know. I wouldn't try and front that I know all 4* presidents are or the layers of crust under the Earth.
I keep that same mentality today. If I don't know it, I'm not gonna try and persuade myself into knowing just to speak about it. I'm open towards learning it so that if I do get the opportunity to speak about it I'm well rooted, but if I don't know it initially, then I'm gonna try to avoid those conversations. Probably one of the reasons why I avoid the Social Lounge.
