Characteristics of the arrogant

An arrogant being is someone with an almost always arrogant and conceited demeanor . Many believe they are experts in all the topics they talk about , with the addition of not being interested in the opinion of others.
The arrogant person is not always a bad person, or disrespectful, but sometimes they can offend others with the intention of reinforcing their arrogance and “showing” that he or she is more valuable as a person.
Arrogance can be part of someone’s personality or an attitude acquired because of some eventuality, such as winning awards, being famous overnight, being successful at work, among others.
