People frequently call me "prideful", and "arrogant." This is problematic. I'm easily the best guy in the world: 1/3 of America is as dumb as a fence post. On any scale I'm ranked on, I'm hot shit.
But, in every other application of pride the tendency towards being offended is connoted. Is that an element of pride and arrogance? For instance, someone acts spiteful to Bob and Bob refused to ever talk to the person again because his sense of pride has been offended. What term would you use to describe someone who was excessively "arrogant", but not capable of being offended by others?
I'd put on a hat that would mark me as the neighborhood dunce if I meant I didn't have to work again, and would win the heart of Ms. Right. If pride means you're always averse to being offended by others, can a true consequentialist also be prideful? Or can someone who is prideful be self-deprecating?
