This reminds me of a band I used to be in where I and the other guitarist had music knowledge while the singer had none. We also had more understanding about music production and sound. When we discussed about music, composition and sound I and the other guitarist we'd understand each others points in seconds while the singer would almost always object and have a different opinion based on his proconceived notions about music and what he'd read in forums without having the background to filter any of these. Whatever a guy he never met would write on the internet was correct and we were wrong even after spending hours upon hours discussing, explaining and try to teach him a few things. He is an intelligent guy but his field of knowledge had nothing to due with natural sciences so his thought process was so different that maybe it was one of the reasons of us not communicating well. He did however thought because he was intelligent that he could comprehend subjects a lot easier and faster than he could.
