I've always felt that if I examine myself too much, I'll find out what I know and don't know, and I'll burst the bubble. I've gotten so lucky relying on my animal instincts, I'd rather keep a little bit of the animal alive.

That's exactly what one may need this word for - to showcase one's acquaintance with ersatz lexis.
