I learned this at a class and find it very profound.
In any paper, anywhere, especially in nyc, anyone who is "rude" "pushy" goes against the grain" is labelled as arrogant.
The truly arrogant person shows a lack of inquisitiveness.
No curiosity then guess what arrogant

Yes, especially the passive aggressive who seek to control others. And the tone is quite pitched

To question is to change and the truly arrogant person does not want change.

my take ignorance is not knowing, ok we all don't get the same access
and ignoring, not ok..that becomes arrogance.
What amazes me is just how casually the word arrogant is thrown around, the real arrogant people are not high and mighty sports owners or coaches or george Bush, they are those that do not question what is going on.

They weaponize the word arrogance, not seek to apply the antidote that is to question everything

I agree. When you dont question things its almost like you accept it. They are comfortable and familiar with there circumstances. So curiosity is not present. Arrogant people are controlled by fear. It all about a confort zone.

 Quoting: cg


Often we use the term "being full of yourself" to describe the condition of arrogance - that reminds me of the zen idea of "overfilling a cup of tea" and the Taoist emphasis on the utility of emptiness.

yes, we are all to varying degrees in conditions of ignorance; how we deal with that understanding is what distinguishes us.

Arrogance is not a marker of rank but condition. "High and Low" alike can be equally arrogant (though we more likely call the "low" ignorant rather than arrogant - due to assumptions regarding education perhaps?).

Arrogance is rather the root of abrasive, condescending, belittling, demeaning behaviour, etc?

 Quoting: Beowulf 1061439

exactly shallow thinking is when one does not question assumptions, ask why are things the way they are, it is not about manners or behavior at ALL.

So why not just call someone rude, obnoxious, why call that person arrogant and misuse the term?

Great points, But why not call out the bad behaviors as rude, obnoxious, pushy. plenty of negativity to go around,
I think that these "high" arrogant people might be twisted but still have truth in their heads and truth, gotten from questioning upends the system.

By the way I NEVER defend bad behavior, rather wonder that the overuse of the word arrogance is used as a club to stifle our right to question authority and prod everyone into "proper" behavior.

 Quoting: cg

If fear is the stumbling block then it has to be removed. Its a process. What does the person fear? We are living in a time now when people are beginning to question everything. Especially the goverment. They are being pushed out of there confort zones and will have to adjust to there new circumstances. This will cause chaos. Not getting off topic but I believe this is why evil powers will emerge and cause an event to regain power over the "sheeple". For the first time the arrogant are questioning the powers of this world. But why now? The confort zone is being shaken my friend. Fear is control. So understanding and knowlegde is the sword and shield against the enemy of fear.

Thats true. I looked at it for the good. Those who do question authority out of their own arrogance are coming out. I question everything. Thats how you learn. Even if im wrong in the end of the disscussion. No one knows it all. Its a process. Alot of people have died because they choose to question authority. In alot of cases doors were open to a better understanding because of there stance. Because there are so many lies being told people are questioning everything. I welcome questions whether i agree with the motive or not. If only one person gains insight and is freed from the bondage of foolishness(arrogance) its worth the questioning. Dont forget we all started out not knowing and had to be schooled so to speak lol. Questioning is the doorway to knowlegde. Knowlegde is only the beginning. It can set you free or keep you in bondage. Your choice.
If the ocean was arrogance, a boat would be knowlegde. But a boat with out a sail, row or motor will get tossed and turned by the wind. The sail, row or motor is our understanding. The wind is fear.
This is my opinion. What do you think.

Here, i started the thread because there was a lot of weight to the word arrogance, a lot of misuse and intent to weaponize the word, that is use the word as a means of control, create the label as a sort of brand of shame to be avoided at all cost.
But when the fact of not allowing questioning into the definition, for me, That is a game changer, It shows that those disguised with the best covers, the best presentation can be filthy arrogant and that dark side will crack through their mask by their inability to question when common sense says they should.
it is a way to discern the arrogant ones. I want to separate the annoying ones from the arrogant ones and not to confuse the two. I feel the wor arrogant has been stretched to encompass behavior and not reflect the true essence the simplest definition of arrogance, the inability to question things that need to be questioned.
BP was arrogant because they did not Question their drilling practices, Obama etc, hollywood exec's who wonder why their movie is a flop.
occum's razor, simplest answer tend to be the best answer.

Ultimately it is understanding the world as it is and figuring out what is not known.
Posters questioning here nonsensically are just trolls, saboteurs. They are gone soon enough but if their actions changes otherwise sound discernment then that is a loss.

 Quoting: cg


I'm with you on the definition of arrogance: Arrogance and ignorance are bastard twins, as my wise aunt used to say.

But you show your ignorance with the "change" comment. CHANGE AGENTS (socialist commies) use that line all the time. YES, by nature people are resistant to change. But NOT ALL CHANGE IS GOOD, many changes are DETRIMENTAL, as we see right now in the U.S. under Ocommie as we are pushed further into the new world order. You had BETTER BELIEVE I will resist that change, until my last breath!!

Arrogance is not a natural state of being. It is a manifestation of pathologic narcississm which IMO is taxonomic.

Religion is truly the opiate of the masses. While yall are quoting your next Bible passage, many of you are not curious enough to venture out of your preset comfort zone to see the much larger frameworks that are operative in the world.

Comparitive religion will teach the individual how organized religions keep their followers in preset boxes.

Organized religion precludes true independent thought among its respective followers as everything is filtered through the relgious beliefs of the followers.

Organized religion is good for one thing and one thing only, the pyramidal systems provide vast monetary resources for those at the top. From there, it is an economic trickle down. Priest or pastor, they feed off their flock's inability to think and analyse for themselves.
