I've never actually met an Aspie adult other than my Dad, but coincidentally I just made a thread about an Aspie that I simply can't stand, and feel bad for that purpose.

I'm not going to repeat everything I said so you can go check the thread if you want to.

Arrogance to an NT, is normal and fine for most aspies....

Is this thread trying to make us NT????


Nonsense.

EDIT: Wait. I think I jumped a bit there and didn't read enough between the lines. I think you're talking about perceptions? like NT's can sometime interpret certain normal Aspie behavior as arrogance? If that's what you meant I do agree with that.

yes i think i am quite arrogant in areas that i have researched or that i have strong ethical ideas about. i am perceived as arrogant because i don't second-guess my knowledge or defer to people in any way. if someone proves me wrong then i integrate that new knowledge into my mental file cabinet and move on.

I am ashamed of how arrogant I have been in the past. It was more an internal attitude than anything I said to anybody. I did not bully people, but I was good at discerning how pathetic most people are.
Another trait to work on.

I was cynical and arrogant for two years of my life. I was saying things about NTs being sheep and other nasty things about society. I'm glad that I've finally gotten over it just in time for my 35th Birthday.

In myself it is a response to the incompetent manner of those around me. A very helpful chap suggested to me that I should try caring a little less. I am a little more apathetic towards work these days, which helps :|

I can be pretty arrogant at times. I like to be right and rub it into peoples faces. Its a character flaw of mine, but I don't think its necessarily related to autism.

Arrogance shines when you disagree with someone over an important point, so go dear comrade to the politics and religion section of this site and witness the unbelievable arrogance of autistics.

There seems to be a lot of arrogance on the WrongPlanet Facebook groups. They probably act that way there because they know that s**t wouldn't fly on this forum.

I find that this statement is untrue.

I try not to be arrogant... but I have found that if you can back it up, most people take it even worse, because they assume you are just TRYING to show them up.

I've found it's better to just do than say...

Yeah, there was this one guy. A complete megalomaniac who was both oblivious and indifferent to the fact that he was pissing everybody off and making them hate him. Long story.
