Straight from the horse’s mouth “You can be UNBELIEVABLY arrogant”. I have no grounds to deny this, and take great comfort from the word “can” which implies that at other times I am NOT insufferable.
One good thing about being arrogant to the point it’s noticed is that you take others, arrogant too or even more so, in your stride. Not one feather ruffled. That’s how you distinguish the true arrogant from its fake cousin. The newcomer, the wannabe – they have a point to prove. A veteran arrogant has nothing to prove. Because he already has. Not least that he has no need to be approved of, liked or anything else that constitutes human coinage.
Before you answer and tell me that, naturally, YOU are not arrogant ever, in the slightest, indeed abhor the notion, try and think first how you actually define “arrogance”. Trust me, what is one person’s arrogance is another’s being self assured.
