Here's my definition of a dink:

A dink is a person who uses their knowledge of facts to increase social status among their peers. For them, knowledge is social competition, so for them to lose any conflict about that knowledge represents a measurable loss in social status. This myopic focus on facts leads them to lose any sense of context, and at its extreme, leads them to measure everyone by that knowledge.

Not all knowledge experts are dinks.
