now, i've met lots of folks. arrogant and otherwise. the ones that get me are the ones who are arrogant for no reason whatsoever. UNEARNED Arrogance? that irritates me. alot of the earned and unearned arrogant ones I’ve met were also Pagan.
i have friend, former military, arrogant as all get out, and yet? he has the skills,knowledge & strength of will to back that up. mind, he's also kind and friendly. eh, he's also 6'5" & built like a brick shite house but the mind? my god that man is smart!
but then ya get the gits..who appear to think their shit doesn't stink and that their word is the highest of the high..and your a dick if you don't follow what they say/think. and the heavens forbid you *GASP* offer an opposing opinion.
y'all ever met anyone like that? if so, did you ignore them? laugh at them hysterically? beat the snot out of them intellectually? kick their booty? what? enquiring minds want to know!
Its human nature. They are on a power trip, because for whatever reasons they have developed the need to feel superior and validated. Its usually born of deep seeded self esteem issues.
There are some people who are plain pig ignorant, met a few myself...
y'all ever met anyone like that?
if so, did you ignore them?
Of course not, too entertaining to leave be.
laugh at them hysterically?
Yes, but more, maniacal.
beat the snot out of them intellectually?
kick their booty?
Though, they likely have one coming, no, I'd never violate their freedom of speech.
There are persons of both genders that have been praised or built up much of their life as being better than everyone else, or of an economic and social class that is imprinted with idea that they are supposed to abuse those lesser than them as an institutionalized right.
The posting refers to a tall man. I've seen various articles in past on news about the psychology and social preferences to give tall males of different types a leader status or to be intimidated by. Some articles even go about height and success with business, politics and other careers.
Somewhere in life, such arrogant people get kicked down some notches by other stronger or more defiant opponents, I've seen that throughout life. As long as the said problem people keep their hands off one and don't do other harm to home and employment, etc, they are irritating realities of society. Youtube and other video servers are full of videos of problem ego people showing off or being taken down.
Yes indeed You Tube and others are still growing as I think is blogging and vlogging. The thing about it is that a minor success appears to seduce some people into thinking they are important and that they, being in their own eyes famous, are qualified to judge others
Its absolutely no good bloggers and vloggers of the internet droning on 24/7 about the importance of freedom of speech if they are then caught operating a cartel or gang and deciding who is or is not allowed to speak, that such decisions are almost always disguised as preventing trolls is easily disproven such is the fragility of the bubble of arrogance.
As for the relative height of people involved I've no idea what you're talking about I think a quick check would show that most very ambitious people are average to small in height, and, whilst they may need a ladder to look into other peoples eyes, their lack of stature doesn't prevent them being among the most arrogant, pompous fools to be found anywhere, in some cases it may even be the cause of it. You may have met or have heard of one or two tall people who are also arrogant Obama springs to mind...Then of course there's the kind of arrogance that is nothing more than a thin disguise of how insecure and fragile is their confidence.
There have been a number of Taller people type studies and articles last few years, particularly in politics and business, from where the researchers were getting their subjects. Smaller people can be just as insidious or power hungry. Around election cycles such persona articles of what the voters and media are best at selling, the tall and charismatic angle comes in at times.
Sheki, knowing all the angles from long experience and within intelligence profession. The spies and stealth operators one thinks one can trust to surprises most often.
Tall and silent, nice combination for an assassin, but this was on a civilian basis at a Naval base.
"He was a tall man, appeared to have dark skin, looked like he was in some kind of uniform and he had a rifle," Durham told NBC.
I see it here big time!
Either one can "fash" (Stress) themselves out over others or be a better person yourself and set the example.......We are only accountable for ourselves and people will decide on their own our good qualities or not. I just be me.......Have a Great DAY!
thank you everyone for your reply. you've def given me some food for thought. i usually just laugh it off. at the very least while momentarily irritated? the laughter releases the good happy chemicals :D
