From the latin arrogantĭa, arrogance is the quality of being arrogant. This adjective (arrogant), meanwhile, refers to someone haughty or arrogant.
Examples: "actor toured the streets of the city with his usual arrogance, without responding to greetings from fans", "You have to put arrogance aside and admit you was wrong", "arrogance will get you nowhere: I recommend you to study to improve.
Arrogance may be considered a character flaw. The arrogant said individual feels an excessive pride in itself and requires an appreciation excessive, convinced he has the right to privileges that he knows and that it should not have either.
It is important to distinguish between arrogance and self-esteem or self-confidence. Have strong self-esteem or entrust on his personal abilities per se is not a defect or a negative connotation; on the contrary, it is healthy and beneficial for the person. Arrogance is an excess of this feeling.
The arrogant attaches excessive importance to its image. Therefore, it is in accordance with this distorted picture of himself and wants to agree rights based on such alleged importance.
Imagine an interview with a writer who has just published a book. The author can mention that it is very pleased with the final result of the work, which reflects his sense of self. However, he adds that he has just presented 'the best book on the history of the national literature' or if he says "there is no writer with my talent", it shows his arrogance.
