A lot of things about Luce annoy Holden, but in Chapter 19, Holden says specifically, "that was one of the annoying things about Luce...he'd make you describe the most personal stuff that happened to you, but if you started asking him questions about himself, he got sore...these intellectrual guys don't like to have an intellectual conversation with you unless they're running the whole thing".  It was annoying to Holden that Luce wanted to control the direction of every conversation.
