Affectation



  • An attempt to assume or exhibit what is not natural or
    real; false display; artificial show.



  • Something you do to make yourself seem [cool]er than you are. A lot of the time you dont really realize youre doing it, but all of the time you look a fool to everyone watching, assuming theyve grown up more than you have.

    Almost everyone has some affectations, but people with a lot of them stick out like sore thumbs and they dont even know it. See [try-hard].

    People in high school and college (especially) tend to have a lot of affectations because they are stupid. Or because they dont have the life experience to know that they are being stupid. Oftentimes both.
