Whenever I say something showing I know what I'm or he is talking about, his jaw drops - literally, and all the chemistry seems to evaporate. This happens to me really often. It's not that I want to show off my knowledge, it's really just me taking part in the conversation, just because a good conversation is a real turn-on to me. But guys don't really seem to dig that, so far I only met very few guys that could "take it" if I was not pretending to be constantly surprised by what they were telling me.
Was I just unlucky with that or is it just a turn-off to most of you guys?

I actually enjoy the company of highly intelligent women (meaning no disrespect to average girls). If a girl can engage in deep conversation and make good solid arguments then I respect that. If I'm already attracted to a girl, being smart only makes her more appealing. If I'm not, her intelligence probably won't make me attracted to her but it will increase my respect for her as a person.
I think there are guys out there that feel intimidated when a girl shows superiority to him in some way. That's a sweeping generalization, I know, but I do think that it exists. It might be that you're a woman of above average intelligence talking to men of average or low intelligence. That's just my hypothesis though, take it with a grain of salt.3
