WOTW: Autodidact

Autodidact (noun):  a self-taught person
New Oxford American Dictionary

Found in Michael J. Fox's book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future:
"I used to tell people that I was an autodidact, then smile smugly when I could tell, by the look on their face, that I was so autodidactic that I had taught myself a word they didn't even know."

Sounds like something I would have done when I was younger :)
