I should clarify that while I don't think you get any special dialogue responses, you do get extra text that wouldn't be there otherwise, which is certainly worth it on my first playthrough
Not very far in the game yet but so far haven't found a situation where it gives much of an advantage. Unless having the skill shows dialogue options that wouldn't be there other wise ( I doubt it ) the main appeal to me is the RP aspect of my intelligent and knowledge hungry nano absorbing as much info as he can.
