"The truest characters of ignorance are vanity and pride and arrogance." - Samuel Butler

You never hear of a winner calling someone else "arrogant". You have to think of yourself in the inferior to do so in the first place.

It's a word that I'm often called, but for good reason: Because I have a habit and gift for seeing things play out like stories in a book before they ever happen. The issue is that no one ever listens to me because they've usually found themselves in a unspoken competition of intellect with me for no reason just to attempt to prove their soft or naive preconceived notions correct. Perhaps it stems from the intimidation of being outdone, as a friend pointed out?
