This is exactly my problem with people like this, and in this field (STEM) there are assuredly no shortages of them... It is very rare to find someone speaking with good intent in my experience, at least in the younger twenty-something crowd popular with startups - if they have something to say, it is almost always to one-up someone else. Entertaining this is not worth anyone's time, and its pervasiveness is part of why I've all but given up on having a professional presence whatsoever.
