People who speak slowly just need a little bit of alcohol to get the inhibition of just talking out of the way. You don't want to be a rambling schizo but if you talk faster you can use more simple thoughts to convey meaning than pausing to think of the best way to say something. Once you teach a subject enough though you should be able to do the lecture without thinking and at that point it's just style and if you're speaking slowly for style you're possibly a shit speaker

I never knew sci is full of oversocialized shitbrains. How did you even end up visiting here? A lot of stem thinkers, your average lecturer is not going to talk about some technical field using rich expressions, head bobbing fuckery to catch your attention. Often the presentations are shitty circa 2000 looking but the content matters and your and the lecturer's pasion about a subject, and your deep will to understand the material- coming from your innate interest.
Are you pop sci faggots, undergrads or business school tryhards? Its ok, you can tell me.

Met him a few times and we chatted, basically he acted like he was better than everyone else who wasn't as famous as him. I really can't go into specifics because he'll recognize me, but basically he thought he was a God and wouldn't give common courtesy to anyone who wasn't a phD or a scientist or whatever.
Just as an example of equal magnitude, imagine if you asked him "Hey man what are your hobbies" and he said "Don't ask me that asshole who do you think you are", like if you're a peasant talking to a king. I guess maybe I'd feel that powerful too if I had millions of views and students lining up to meet me whenever I walked around campus, idk

He is just very humble; especially since he has clearly seen and realized the limitations of humanity.

Speculation; Maybe in order to gain less resistance and show the importance of love, his personality has shifted towards what it is now.
He understands that people can be dumb and therefore have dumb/untrue standpoints/opinions. Yet by accepting this and transcending this, you get something like him. Which is why I like him.
