    What I find intolerable is dishonesty, in particular dishonesty with oneself in the form of denial or rationalization.:steam:
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    Arrogance is an interesting one. People who think they know everything and believe they cannot acquire any more information from anyone = bad arrogance.

    but saying "heh its just cause I'm so skilled " after someone was amazed at your sheer awesomeness, thats just humorous.

    genetic influence for unagreeableness + abuse = abusive person

    The genetic influence probably involves low serotonin levels and high testosterone and low estrogen/progesterone.

    What are the other dimensions? Empathy/sympathy, as you've said, is only one. To call a whole spectrum of people abusive seems... well. Uncalled for.

    Lack of Self-discipline.
    People who can't keep a cool-head and start panicking when something happens.
    People that have the "can't change anything" attitude. I prefer being around people who want to overthrough the gods, than the ones who just simply exist.
    Lack of ambitions in general, I simply despise people who do not fight for anything.


    As for the arrogance comment, if it has a base, I can live with whatever amount is it that you have. If it's baseless, I'm going to punch you in the face.

    If you minus our the Abusines, I'd consider all of the other ones to be positive points of a personality.

    Insincerity; I'm sorry to say this but I distrust Fe a lot of the time and Dom-Fes sort of have to 'prove' their sincerity over time before I accept them as more than superficial acquaintances. What happens micro-expressions trip you up and I'm hyper-perceptive to them. For instance, I'd much rather interact with a visibly annoyed person than someone with a wide grin on whom the 'annoyed expression' flits in almost imperceptibly.... etc

    Eh, Fis can be just as nauseating in that arena. ExFP for example.

What exactly is bothersome about arrogance? Is it that you feel that an arrogant person has little to back it up with? Or do you feel that they are difficult to work or cooperate with?
    Accurately perceiving a personal skill as superior to others is not arrogance from what I understand. Arrogance is about assuming one's core intrinsic value as an individual as superior. That is a position of ignorance. When that core assumption is applied to other areas of the person, it caps off their ability to learn.

    I have seen a strangely persistent relationship between ignorance and arrogance. The more intellectually blind a person is, the more dismissive they are of actual accomplishment in others. People are more likely to feel they are the master of their domain so to speak when their perception of that domain is small and easy to comprehend. The more one comprehends about just how big everything is, how many people have gone before and already thought our thoughts and performed our skills, how can a person think they are so unique and above others? It is blindness especially when some knack of thought or skill is all it takes to catapult someone into thinking they are superior to the unwashed masses in any significant way. It can be related to a sense that one is not acceptable unless superior and that typically being a facade makes for a deep hole to have to live inside.
