    Can't say I do. See I really am ignorant.

    I'm an intelligent sort of person, well more intelligent than the bulk of the people I meet day to day. And I've noted on a number of occasions that I've been told (in no uncertain terms) that I am, or can be arrogant at times.

    So, maybe there is some truth in that huh? I don't go out to be arrogant (honest) but sometimes I can be, and I've noticed that about myself a few times. When I'm aware of my own arrogance, I tend to shut up and keep quiet for a while, so not to get up folks backs.

    Unless of course, I don't really like them much, in which case I get even more arrogant, just to piss them off

    What's so bad about being 'arrogant' anyway?

    I think all of the members familiar with me know that I'm arrogant because of my insurmountable wealth of knowledge and intelligence

    Some arrogance is OK - it is often what attracts us to other people.

    However, as I've said before... no one can make you feel inferior without your consent!!

    (I'm also finding your rants to be enlightening and at times hilarious, M...)

    I know exactly what you're talking about, M. I hate arrogance (though I am, at times, arrogant) almost to the point of hating these people. But instead, I laugh at them, and talk crap about them to my real life friends (who, of course, could give a crap).

    This is so true, it is called specialisation
