    behave like (interpretation)

    Hi,

    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.

    Thanks.

    Simplify the sentence to discover its meaning: ​He behaved like an idiot.
