Why do I come across so many condescending people? And what do they get out of being so patronising?

Tired of life.
I'm going to have & enjoy super powers. The only reason why I haven't touched anyone was because I was aware.

It annoys me even more because most of the time they are not that intelligent as to have anything to be condescending about.
Sometimes I'll let them have their moment because its so obvious the case to me and I think let them have it, they probably know the rest of the time that they are not that smart or have a creeping suspiscion about it, although rest of the time I dont feel like letting anyone have anything who doesnt deserve it.

Oftentimes, condescending people don't realize they're being condescending.
Other times, victims of "condescension" can be projecting, feeling that someone is talking to them as if they're an idiot when the cause of the "condescending" tone is entirely different. E.g., a hostile, combative person can regard a peaceful placating tone as condescending.
An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.
A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
