    I'm sure many clever people are, and that many less clever people are too. There's not really anything more to say than that.

    I often refer to myself as Einstein reincarnated, but I don't think arrogance is my most prominent quality.

    No most clever people are attractive, funny, caring and incredibly modest just like me!

    If anything, I tend to find genuinely intelligent people tend to be modest and aware of their limitations. It's the ones that believe themselves to be more intelligent than they are that tend to be arrogant.

    I would say that I do not look down on people who are less educated than me, However I do look down on people with significantly less common sense.

    I believe cleverness comes with this tendency to believe you are always right. Self-confidence sometimes borders on arrogance.

    Some people are arrogant, some people are not. Doesn't seem to particularly correlate with intelligence in my experience.

    I find people appear to be arrogant in equal measures regardless of intelligence or academic background. I think it is just human to think you know more than you actually know and when you mix that with stubbornness, it isn't hard to see why so many people are arrogant?
