Arrogant people make for some of the most unpleasant folks to be around. They don't just think they're better than you, they act as if they know they're better than you.
They also share a few traits and characteristics with narcissists, including believing that they are unique and only understood by high-status people, always being expectant of admiration from others, a large degree of entitlement, and a lack of empathy.
Their condescending attitudes and behaviors can make other people angry and put off by them, but you don't have to let these people bring you down.
Those who stand up to arrogance are seen as having integrity, as they're not going to just let someone disrespect them.
Here are six great comebacks when dealing arrogant people:
'What makes you say that?'
This question simply asks the arrogant person to reflect on why they're generalizing, insulting or stereotyping a person.
Hopefully, the arrogant person will recognize that they've said something negative and in poor taste and quit their behavior.
'Ouch' or 'That one hurt'
Arrogant people have a knack for hurting other people's feelings. They may or may not show empathy, but they definitely understand what it means to make someone feel crappy.
Tell them that they're hurting you emotionally, don't be afraid. At least they will become aware of the fact that they're doing damage; they might even try to stop.
