ARE AUDIOPHILES OVERLY SENSITIVE BY NATURE?FEELINGS AND OPINIONS?


I have been an audiophile the last 20 years for the last 5 years I have worked with Infigo Audio as my industry affiliation.  It’s been my experience in business and audio conversations that there are 2 areas that are interesting. When giving opinions many audiophiles try to come off smarter than the people they are talking to. Also in conflict resolution if you have disagreements they are more willing to go to extremes. Has anyone else experienced this.  Some seem like they can tell you what to do? How to post etc. which to me is crazy. Most of us are 30, 40, 50, 60,70 plus.  Thoughts everyone?

If you think of HiFi as a hobby, you'll see the same actors in every hobby pursuit. 

I’ve only been in this hobby for a few years so I am not able to give advice on very many things and I know trying to give advice on something I don’t know about just makes me look like a fool. So I just mostly read and learn from everyone else. Happy listening ! 

@Ronboco, don't be afraid to ask questions to our group.  There is a lot of knowledge and experience here, and you might still scratch your head afterwards.  Opinions vary so much.  And usually, you will find a wise guy in here somewhere.  No finger pointing please.

I avoid my closest dealer because a guy there is pompous and speaks like he knows more than everyone else in the room. Went in a few weeks back after avoiding for years and a nice young guy was there. Be helpful and open and the hobby will flourish. As a younger guy there is nothing worse than an old egomaniac who is out of touch. Be cool everybody.
