    oh and I realize that "not imperfect" can be an annoying thing to try to understand..but I don't want to use "perfect" because I don't think that "not imperfect" is the same as "perfect". It can be..but in this case I really don't think it is..

    Overpsychoanalyzing movies is fun when they start to get boring, so I see no problem with that.

    But you see yourself as not imperfect rather than perfect because.... you haven't found any imperfections in yourself?

    If this is the case, I recommend searching within to find the awesome stuff about you and the stuff to improve upon. I'm sure you will find enough to improve upon to fight away any true arrogance.

    Admit what you know.

    Admit what you don't know.

    The latter is the harder to master for most of us, and those that fail miserably at it, often cover it with a mask of arrogance.

    What tends to bother me with arrogant people is their lack of introspection, and thus their lack of noticing things on their own. .. Even worse, is when others have to point it out because they're too arrogant to believe something is wrong in the first place, they get defensive and indignified about it.

    I am stubborn and unless people play nice, I do not back down, and I will find an answer for everything and anything.
    It doesn't even matter if I believe in what I am saying.
    I will find the loophole.

    Some people call this arrogant. Maybe it is.

    Edit..Going on the above post .. I am not arrogant then, because I am well aware I am being stubborn and contrary.

    like how people get mad when you tell them another perspective.
    delicious to watch denial and defensiveness at play. mmm.
    especially if it manifests physically, going red in the face, little
    tantrum-ic gestures, stomping and behaving like a little bitch.

    hahahaha. i love it when they do that. it's so funny to laugh at.

    Arrogance is blinding. You become unable to see your mistakes and flaws.

    That said, if you need to be humbled, PM me. I'll have you reaching for the razor blades within 20 minutes.

    I just add "In my opinion" after I've said something, I think that does the trick.

    Or learn to say "I don't know" to most things. "I don't have an opinion". You know, you do it just to stop your ego reinforcing itself. Even if you do know, and do have an opinion. I think, what should happen, your mind will loosen up and stops finding ways to win the argument and so on. It's really hard to say "I don't know" even if it is most often true. Be knowingly boring. Don't even think when you are alone, just be boring.

    You aren't supposed to. That's the beauty of it.
