Many people today mistake confidence for arrogance, while others see arrogance as being confident in ones self or in what they being in. Truth be told there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. To be arrogant means having pride beyond normal, they could care less about what others think about them or how they operate or react to certain things. They only care about themselves or what they would benifit, these could be shown even without actual communication, how they carry themselves is enough for anyone to see and notice.

An arrogant person would always want to avoid certain people, only looking forward to talk or associate with others they feel would benifit them, most times they say their minds openly not to help others who cant speak but for their own selfish reasons. They are the ones that would arrive very late to an important gathering without even the slightest bit of care about how others would feel, they dont even care to give an explanation or an apology, they tend to look down on others, saying their minds without an inch of care about the feelings and mental health of others. Because of their ability to care about themselves alone, they never actually listern to your ideas or plans so they could easily cut you off at anytime to put in the ideas that best suits them. They are the types that would have the best comebacks for every verbal attacks, always having the last words even when at fault.

An arrogant person does not care what needs to be done to be at the top, they could use others as a steping stone, as long as they get to the top notting else matters, they lack the ability to discern when to speak and when not too, thus speaking bluntly to people when its not required. An arrogant person tends to put the blame on others rather than themselves. Because they feel they are never at fault.

One of the major reasons why many confuse arrogance for confidence, is the ability for both to speak up on how they feel. But the major difference is that a confident person knows when to speak and when its totally not called for. Confident person tend to listern to others and their ideas, they only state their mimds when needed for learning purpose or better clarification.

Confident people tend let others know the hard works done by team members, because they are confident that it would not stop them for also climbing to the top, they are confident in their own abilities so they see no need to put down others.

The truth about arrogant people is that, they use arrogance to mask their fear, insecurities, imperfections and worry. They tend to be that way to distract others from seeing how weak they are. But there is always a way out, the key is to acknowledge it.

  • Pride could also turn confidence into arrogance.

  • What are you?
