R122 A truly sophisticated person likes "upscale/classy/sophisticated" things because they genuinely enjoy them. There is no pretention and they will not make others feel less for not liking their interests. For example:

They love opera, not because opera is supposed to be sophisticated, but because they LOVE the music, the story, the productions, etc.

The love Charles Dickens because they get lost in the characters and find him very witty.

The read NYT/WSJ/NPR because they honestly believe it is the most reliable and credible source.

Is there a distinction between pseudo-intellectuals and pseudo-sophisticates? NPR listeners who mistake themselves for retired UN diplomats and have libraries of books that they've never read would be (to me) an example of the former. But they also generally pretend to be above fashion and design.

Pseudo sophisticated people are epitomized by gala patrons at the Columbus Museum of Art who declare it "just as good as any museum in New York," while being unaware of anything art-related outside of those two reference points. They are flashy with their purchased fashion, alcohol, acquaintances, and design, without having any cultivated taste of their own. They also tend to look down on intellectuals as esoteric and dull.

Maybe it's a distinction without a difference.

"Not knocking the thread but curious to know what WOULD make a person truly sophisticated."

Maybe a decent education (formal and/or life); broad exposure to different people, places, ideas, experiences, culture, art; the ability to think critically; some wit and humor, including being able to laugh at oneself; experiencing and coming through difficult experiences (which often adds a layer to a person's views and beliefs), a general open-ended curiosity about the world around you - all without being smug, self-satisfied, patronizing, condescending to people, and dismissive of other people's experiences.

R124 really nails the provincial variant---I've been to the Columbus Museum of Art and it has to be one of the worst US art museums I've visited; not mearly overrated like the Detroit Museum or the High, but just awful. Clearly a reflection of a few donors poorly arranged. The Cleveland Museum of Art, up the road, is a great museum, the Cincinnati Museum, in the other direction is not great but has some nice pieces. Columbus is pathetic in relation to either one.

I think a truly sophisticated person doesn't need to be pretentious because they have the emotional intelligence to understand that making yourself look better doesn't require looking down on others or throwing out signals that they are more enlightened that the unwashed masses.

That said, I'll guess that my relatives who never went to college consider me some pseudo sophisticated person because I've traveled internationally, have a job enabling me to work from home and live a certain suburban lifestyle.

by Anonymousreply 136March 22, 2023 10:43 AM

I think the pseudo part of pseudo-sophisticated comes from having a narrow worldview and an inflated sense of one's own intelligence and worth.

Not understanding the limitations of a college education, taking marketing aimed at the upper middle class at face value instead of holding it in perspective, having disdain for people in other walks of life who are equally intelligent to you... marks of the pseudo-sophisticate.

I'm trying to think about what I still actually listen to on NPR - that's nationally distributed. I was really into NPR in the 90s when I lived in Chicago, but it's faded. I still listen to Fresh Air - but only after seeing who the guest is and what the topic is. I'd estimate I listen to one-fourth of episodes. Before, I would normally just tune in and listen to most episodes. I still listen to those drive-time pieces that recap financial news or the news generally. And occasionally All Things Considered. That's mostly while in the car. Fresh Air is the only thing I really seek out. Dave Davies is much better than Terri Gross now.

I was in a class where we were reading Molière, and our professor emphasized heavily that Molière was a genius- witty and subversive of class conventions. Ok cool.

Soon after, my mom visited and when telling her about my classes I mentioned we'd read a Molière play. She gave this big, heaving wistful sigh and and cooed "Molière, so witty and subversive." The phrasing was so creepily close, she fairly closely matched the tone of voice the professor had been speaking in in that class too.

I pressed her a little without pushing it too far, and I did not get the impression that she's ever seen or read anything by Molière. Where the fuck did that come from?
