Definition of: arrogance

(arə·gəns) noun
The quality or state of being arrogant; haughtiness; overbearing pride. Also ar′ro·gan·cy. [<OF <L arrogantia. See ARROGANT.] Synonyms: assumption, assurance, disdain, haughtiness, insolence, presumption, pride, superciliousness, vanity. Arrogance claims much for itself and concedes little to others. Pride is an absorbing sense of one's own greatness. Disdain sees contemptuously the inferiority of others to oneself. Presumption claims place or privilege above one's right. Assumption quietly takes for granted superiority and privilege which others might or might not concede. Vanity intensely craves admiration and applause. Superciliousness silently manifests mingled haughtiness and disdain. Insolence is open and rude expression of contempt and hostility, generally from an inferior to a superior, as from a clerk to a customer. See ASSURANCE, IMPERTINENCE.
