What are the key differences between confidence and arrogance?
Roxanne and other thought leaders provide their take in this recently published article from UpJourney.com.
Roxanne’s perspective is rooted in the Enneagram:
“Arrogance is embedded in the human personality. One of the primary functions of the personality structure is as a coping and protection mechanism.
It served an important role in our early years as we unconsciously developed defenses which seemingly could prevent us from experiencing the inevitable pain that comes with being a sensitive little one who picked up the spoken and unspoken, the seen and unseen elements of our environments.
Going through the stages of development as youth and adults, that protective shield became the basis for our identity—for how we know ourselves.”
