I'm sure we all have experienced a point in time where an individual has come across as being arrogant. This may have happened in a casual conversation, social event, networking function, or even a professional meeting. But arrogance is so loud that it can speak a multiple of things. Often times, what is spoken is not that which is being said out of their mouth, but what is being heard from their attitude.
I, along with a few other people, have experienced this behavior this past week. People often mistake arrogance with confidence.
When someone walks into a room with arrogance, "you hear them everywhere in the room". When someone walks into a room with confidence, "you can see them from anyplace in the room".
One definition of arrogance is "an exaggerated and boastful sense of one's own worth or importance". A definition of confidence is "assurance: freedom from doubt; belief in yourself and your abilities".
As I stated in my recent status update Confidence is "displayed" not spoken and Arrogance is simply subtle weakness. Your thoughts and comments are welcome.
Shared over a cup of tea,
