Why name-dropping makes you look stupid and insecure

You dropped something. Cringe. Stay until the very end and give this a like to help more people find this and avoid awkward social encounters.

The ever-so-casual dropping of a name into a conversation is usually a crude attempt to gain social kudos from someone else’s reputation. If you really feel that name-dropping is necessary, do it subtly; never mention a name out of context, and only refer to people you really do know.

If you mention the names of people with whom you have only the most fleeting acquaintance you will be seen, rightly, as a delusional and needy celebrity stalker.
