I don't know why, but whenever anyone says this one thing, and I really mean anyone, I just can't help but cringe!

It could be a person I have deep respect for, it could be in a book, it could be a renowned scientists just coining this new phrase, but whenever some explains something and says "I called it [random made up title/phrase[random made up title/phrase]" or "I call myself a [random made up title/phrase]" I just lose it every time (silently, in my mind)

I call that tick "Intrinsic Perceptivable Arrogancy Vigilence", or "iPav" for short.

(That was actually really difficult for me to write, even as I wrote it i was cringing)

Even if the action doesn't stem from arrogance at all, it just feels pompous and self-entitled.

Does anyone else feel this way about that? or have I just gone socially insane?

Also, What random things that people say really bug you for whatever reason?

I think maybe you are focusing a little too much on what others say.

Most people are idiots, even "scientists".

I'm well aware of this fact. However, it's not even about them being wrong, so much as just this underlying arrogant tone to this one particular sentence

Funny thing I just used it

www.abovetopsecret.com...

And I did it because it's something pretty ridiculous and over the top and if it actually happens I could probably sell horoscopes for a living or something.

You've just gone socially insane. What? You asked! LOL Actually, no it doesn't bother me when someone says they called it. I'm sure there are plenty of things that I say that must bother someone or another.

I think you're misinterpreting the saying I was referring to in the OP

I cringe if someone eats with their mouth open or chews gum loudly.

Words? I tend to ignore.

(gulps) Heh heh, I do that A LOT. Then again, I'm an artist so I kinda have to do that for my works. However, I also name a lot of theories and concepts, even when they already have names lol. I don't know about others but I don't do it out of arrogance. Sometimes my name for the concept just makes it easier to explain.

One example is what I call the "Lottery Effect", which I use to describe a bad situation that people won't outlaw because they secretly want to enjoy it. Societies tend to do this with "vices" or virtual scams that are too enjoyable to completely get rid of, even if the vices go against their social or religious norms. It's also a reason many poor people are reluctant to completely crush the wealthy; because deep down, they still think they can become rich & they don't want those laws to affect them.

We're still cool though, right?
