I Usually Do Not Converse Too Deeply In PersonBut every once in awhile I will tell you something and you will know I have a lot of knowledge on many different things. I just realized i'm my fathers child lol. He is like that but college educated. Mine is just learning from life and reading.
Don't ever think just because someone is sitting back and listening that they are shy or not smart.
I am quiet but not shy. I may be paying attention or analyzing the conversation. Mostly what I see is the soul of the person and why the are talking about something that they are.
Sadly there are many pretentious people out there, only because they are insecure and feel a lack of acceptance.
The ones I admire the most are the ones who are humble in their speech while still maintaining a sense of knowledge
