Beings who somewhat rely on the fact that not everyone has the knowledge that we possess...?
Far from relying on that fact, I treasure it and wouldn't trade it for the world. I think it would make the playground a bit tougher to manipulate.
On the contrary, people will listen to and respect you even if you only give the appearance
of superiority. They may not like you but they will respect you, making it as easy to manipulate them as would be for John Holmes to get laid in a women's prison.
