A lot of people like to use "big" words just because they think it makes them sound smarter than they actually are. It takes some maturity to learn the lesson you have learned.

Another important lesson is this: When the person you are talking to actually do know what they are talking about, and they actually do want to convey that information to you, they will take the time to explain it in terms you understand. (With the exception of the smart-but-kinda-jerk type that will just tell you to read up about whatever it is they talk about).
