He behaved towards me like an idiot.
I'd like to ask if 'like an idiot' could in the right context refer to:
1- He behaved towads me like I was an idiot.
2- He behaved towads me like he was an idiot.
I think sentence 2 is the only option but cannot make sure of it.
Simplify the sentence to discover its meaning: He behaved like an idiot.
