One of the least attractive things in a person is, in my opinion, arrogance.  Arrogance is not the same as confidence.  While confidence is a positive trait, arrogance is not.  Arrogance gives the impression that one not only thinks they are superior but also that they want you to believe you are inferior.  I pray that I never, ever give off an air of arrogance (although I know I have been guilty of this and it grieves me).  In reality, arrogant people are not superior and they know it on some level.  Therefore, they overcompensate by puffing themselves up at another’s expense.  Other times, maybe, it’s a defensive reaction.  Maybe one feels vulnerable in some way and does not want to appear weak in order to protect themselves.  Either way, arrogance is a trait that is not helpful in the long run in creating or maintaining support and respect from others.  If anything, arrogance leads to being looked down on by others–the exact opposite of the original goal.  webbwisdom.com 2017
