This is something I was thinking about today and have often wondered: Why are people arrogant? I know more arrogant people than I can count and I take great effort to avoid contact with them if at all possible. Most of them are very accomplished in their chosen profession. Having known these people personally and many of them before their widespread acclaim, I knew them to be extremely insecure (many of whom were PR clients). With success and adulation, their heads swell from endless compliments and people fawning all over them. It is truly disgusting to see the 'before and after' personalities. I had always thought people were arrogant because they were 'too good' for other people, but after much thought, I think the most arrogant people are the most deeply insecure. What do you think?
