Arrogance and Kindness

July 28, 2011 2 comments

Almost all of us have, at one time or another, met someone who couldn’t communicate honestly because they were arrogant. The Oxford American Dictionary defines an arrogant person as, among other things, presumptuous, (self) assertive, egotistical, overbearing, opinionated, and snobbish. Nobody likes a social snob or someone who values themselves as superior to others.┬áToday, in your communication behaviors, conquer arrogance by showing a spirit of cooperation, mercy and kindness toward others in all that you say and do. Arrogance is self-defeating but mercy and kindness ensure success in interpersonal communication.
