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?


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. 

Dunning-Kruger effect

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people with limited competence in a particular domain overestimate their abilities.

Just sayin'.



I'd say many "audiophiles" I've interacted with have been mostly unpleasant and miserable people.  There are many good ones obviously.  The Facebook groups have some of the most miserable ones I've ever seen.  Mostly the "measurements only matter" types.
