Why explain something in five words when ten would do? That's your philosophy on communication, but your tendency to exaggerate and be verbose can actually cost you the respect you're trying to achieve. You've got a good mind, one that is curious, expansive and thirsty for knowledge.
And indeed, you soak up lots of information about a broad variety of subjects, not to mention lots of big words and convoluted theories that you attempt to expound upon to others, even if they're clearly uninterested. You may take on the role of the teacher among your friends and colleagues, and you have a hard time putting it down when you go home at night. In truth, you would make a fine professor, what with your good-natured optimism, breadth of knowledge and ability to increase the curiosity and confidence of your students. Stick to the lesson plan, however, because you have a real tendency to get distracted or sidetracked, winding off into long, involved and often irrelevant stories.
