My favorite variant of this type of guy is during the end of a meeting they ask a series of questions about the topics discussed in the meeting and you have a 2nd meeting.

Sometimes if I wanna spice things up I join the meeting early, wait 10 seconds, then leave. This makes a bunch of tryhards also join early and then when I join on time I'm not the first one.

for a lot of meetings I've taken to waiting in the lobby until I see three+ other people join to avoid having to make small talk
