Strange Vanity

An unwillingness to welcome feedback or new views makes a person atrophy intellectually and often professionally as well. Arrogance, to me, is therefore a very strange vanity, one having nothing to do with confidence or with professional pride.

The word “arrogance” comes from the verb arrogate, “To take or claim something for oneself without justification.” It is a form of theft, from others … but from oneself, too.
