Arrogance undid climate talks, declared the headline for a new article. I was struck by the thought how arrogance really limits communication between people in almost all situations. The arrogant person is certain no one has the answer except for himself. Most of us put up with the uppity attitude simply because we are stuck in a position requiring our forced smile and nodded aggrement.
The unfortunate thing is most arrogant people have no clue that no one really cares about their opinion. In a sense all of us are arrogant, because we know best. The only difference between the truly arrogant and the rest of society is we know more than one answer exists.
How about you, know any arrogant people you want to talk about?
