Arrogance can be found in many areas of life and many individuals. Being arrogant and being self-confident are not the same thing, and arrogance is negative and unappealing while self-confidence is to be desired. Arrogance is never born from wisdom but from ignorance, and it is usually combined with a mindset that the individual is better than others. Arrogance is commonly the undoing of someone because it involves the belief that no one else can be as good or as smart as you are. Arrogance can develop because of wealth, beauty, power, or even genetics. The downfall that arrogance brings is that it does not allow you to keep an open mind or think outside the box, and this can be a fatal flaw much of the time.
