What I see is a one sided story. You dictate the answer you want. There is no mention of truly interacting with anyone (a gift
of knowledge). And you make no effort in common knowledge
, identical to what you are ridiculing others for. (Curiousity:Are you active in the singularity community? AI? Rationalist? Futurist?)
The feeling of isolation I understand, but isolation is the protection we build around ourselves. The differences you judge are small compared to the similarities. You are offended by them rejecting your gift
of knowledge like they are offended by being corrected. When stuck in traffic, you are traffic; when you talk about people, you are people.
An analogy that might help... You know those people who fish for compliments/feedback on facebook? "Oh, can't believe that just happened", "Oh, I feel so fat in this". If you correct someone with an expectation of an answer, you are fishing in the exact same way. You too are seeking validation from them and you aren't getting it. That's what feeds the feeling of a lonely isolated world.
