    Why is arrogance deemed an unattractive trait?

    I know, in my own heart, that I am more learned that most other people I know. My level of English is by far the best amongst my peer group (including the Senior Manager of my department at work, who is years older than I am), and I have ethically more decent than most others in my age group (well, getting ethics from twenty-somethings is like getting blood from a stone.:yep: )

    I am fully proud of my strengths, so does this denote being "arrogant"?

    Is it just that loser people possess envy at me, since they wish they could exude my confidence and self-assuredness?
    your (written) english is a lot worse than you think it is. :nopity: i have a feeling that if you are in fact telling the truth, there is a high likelihood that a considerable proportion of your peer group are victims of mild to moderate mental retardation.

    Ok... From what I can conclude from this post, you do not have superior grammar to most twenty-somethings. Sorry, but a lot of this did not make sense, even if you were to read it without the intent of critiquing your grammar. I think that arrogance is perhaps misplaced confidence in one's self or having excessive pride in one's self. If this is the case, I think you might fit the bill.

    In my opinion there is a major flaw in your argument OP.

    Being smarter in somebody does NOT make you better than them. You might be amazingly clever and have a brilliant grasp of the english language (hmm) but that does not make you better than someone who is not as intellectual as you.

    Having self confidence is one thing, and is a good thing to have, as without self belief achievment is unlikely.
    However, rather than having self confidence, you seem to see yourself as above others. Which, rather than being a positive outlook, is negative.
    Oh dear.
    Negative according to whom? You? Healthy people are self-confident, this is a no-brainer.

    More narcissistic than conventionally 'arrogant'. Although, that being said, I tend not to take myself too seriously.

    I understand how most twenty-somethings are. I am quite confident in my appraisal.

    So do I being as I am one, well, I'm just about to turn twenty this week. I don't see how you can be confident in what you have written as it is clearly a shambles when it comes to grammar, which of course is a core element in the English language, and any other.

    I am telling the truth, that i am deemed to be articulate by most in the firm that I work in. This makes me feel proud. Is pride some kind of inherent wrong?

    I understand twenty-somethings thoroughly, and I know that most couldn't give a hoot about issues like the ones I mentioned earlier.

    If you are aware of it and consciously try to make the attitude worse, who cares how its defined? Its still a bad quality.

    Nope. I have low self-esteem
    Totally the same.

    Use to be arrogant a few years back when I was a over-confident 10 year old jerk.

    Now, i'm under-confident and scared to look a girl in the eye. :o:
