Arrogance is a quality of personality that can form a false sense of its significance in a person due to detachment from any attachment, inaccessibility or coldness in relationships with the environment. In other words, a person, like a “blown soap bubble,” wishing to appear as an important person, withdraws himself from probable, both tactile and emotional collisions, and invites everyone to touch him, both literally and figuratively, his coldness and inaccessibility.
The Bible notes that haughtiness is inherent in individuals who are detached and neglected by God. The word arrogance has Old Slavic roots of origin, and the exact meaning of this concept is “to blow” or “to inflate”, a synonym is arrogance, arrogance or arrogance.
Antonym arrogance stands humility or modesty.
The arrogance of a person with his “icy coldness” pushes away other personalities from himself who wish to go on emotional rapprochement with her earlier. Arrogance does not allow you to share your emotions and feelings, cry, repent. The present quality of a person discourages any desire to communicate with it.
Feelings, affection, love - these are unlawful words in the vocabulary of an arrogant person. He hides them deep in the soul. It is no secret that it is precisely in the manifestation of emotions and feelings that a person’s originality and individuality is revealed, and then sympathy arises, turning into affection. Fearing disappointment, the haughty person moves away from any attachment, does not let anyone into his inner world, so he ceases to behave himself, favorably, naturally and affably.
Arrogance is the “therapy” of shyness, awkwardness and constraint. A person wearing a mask of arrogance, and this means consuming the awkwardness and stiffness, is easier to solve important issues for him.
A haughty person does not teach anyone, does not force and does not strain. Imposing something on another person is not part of his intentions. His rule is to go "their way." He is suspended from another individual not because of neglect, but often because of the "cold inaccessibility", behind which the insecure individual is concealed. Intimacy can "melt" inaccessibility, rejection, and behind this will appear its own imperfection and weakness. The arrogance is very close in its qualities to the pretentiousness, mannerism, stiffness.
A haughty person is not eager to humiliate another person. His coldness and detachment cause harm to everyone, thus provoking people to emotional outrage and indignation. However, a person who possesses this quality does not have targeted humiliation.
The origin of arrogant behavior occurs in childhood.
The development of arrogance is influenced by two reasons:
- a defensive reaction of the human psyche, acting as overcompensation of personal defects;
- the emergence of arrogance as a result of obvious success.
This led psychologists to the fact that the factors contributing to the emergence of arrogance are: a sense of inferiority, selfishness, lack of self-confidence, low self-esteem, when the baby is a pet in the family, egocentrism. Growing up, the child gets used to this role, even if he has real achievements.
If a child grows up in a family of high social status, getting used to the fact that he occupies a predominantly better position in society than other individuals, then this individual will certainly become arrogant, provided that the environment flatter, trying to please him.
