    Arrogance is a sign of someone having reached a certain point in their knowledge and being comfortable in that state. Willful stagnation. The refusal to learn anything further.

    So no. Arrogance to me is the antithesis of learning.

    It's been proven that the more you think you know, the less you actually know.
    So arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand.

    info can build up in your head like food builds up in your gut -

    when you take up info for the wrong reasons, and then spit it back out, it stinks and you're usually the only one who cannot smell it.

    a knowledgeable person usually wants to show off his knowledge - he becomes wise when he asks questions about what he thinks he knows - he can ask himself, he can ask others, but if he's arrogant and wants to show off what he thinks he knows, he will not ask questions - and he'll throw stones at the ones who question his performance of knowledge -

    now if the ones he is performing for is just as arrogant and also wants to show off what they think they know, you'll get a closed thread/bruised head -
