Arrogance is considered to be one of the least attractive personality traits. Those individuals who exhibit such an overbearing attitude can be difficult to be around. Their behavior can cause a great deal of disruption and conflict. Those of us who fall into addiction will often develop an arrogant attitude. This can prevent us from seeking help for our problems. Carrying this arrogant attitude with us into recovery can lead to a bumpy ride in recovery and increase the chances of returning to our addiction.

Arrogance can be defined as an offensive display of superiority or self-importance. It can also be described as an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner. Such behavior is always viewed in a negative light. Arrogance is a subjective description and most of those individuals who have this negative attribute ascribed to them will deny it.
