    Hi, your first one says “I am me and you are you,” but what about someone who thinks “I am me and everyone is like me and, therefore, if you don’t respond like me/think like me then you obviously have no common sense or logic?”

    Example: “I’ve just said something to you that hurt your feelings. It wouldn’t have hurt my feelings, therefore, you’re wrong/crazy.”

    This article on arrogance actually describes Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It cannot be treated or changed. It isn’t a mental health issue. It’s a Cluster B personality disorder.

    Your feelings are not valid with an NPD person. They feel no empathy towards others. They don’t believe anyone is more important than them. They don’t believe anyone could ever experience more emotional pain than them, therefore, they can be unbelievably vicious and merciless in their treatment of you. They can reduce you to tears, can even enjoy watching you breakdown while they tear you to shreds, and they will not bat an eye.

    My advice? Run like hell in the opposite direction.

    If you are dealing with someone who is extremely arrogant; who you feel uncertain about; who causes you to feel insecure or on shaky ground; whom you feel you cannot trust…that is your inner voice telling to get away. Those are red flags.

    RUN. Don’t walk. RUN.

    People should just OTOS.
    If it’s not yours, don’t own it.
    Trick is figuring out who owns what- but it’s possible through self-knowledge and self-actualization.
    Makes it harder for the arrogant or the narcissistic to affect you and they hate that.
    The abusive ones will become abusive, but the ones that are mostly OK will eventually get with the program. The rest will go away.
    YMMV
