A false and offensive display of overbearing superiority or self-importance.
Williamsville IL- full of people who think they're better than everyone else at everything and the have the most arrogance in central IL. When in accuality they lose at quite a few activities. While they might have some good programs, they refuse to see that they are not better at everything. They feel as though they have a right to win and if they lose it couldn't have been a "good game." They proceed to say that they lost because they "were asleep," or they "weren't playing their best," or "the calls weren't fair" or "the other team cheated." They all just need to understand to try to learn from their mistakes and try to get better rather than complain and complain and complain. They also create the illusion that they are the most phenomental school that has ever walked the face of the earth. What they fail to realize is that, while winning regionals a lot is very good, rarly ever getting to State does not mean you're the best school in the entire universe. The bottom line is that the Williamsville Bullets need to get put in their place to get them to pop their HUGE air-filled heads.

The act or habit of making statements based on pride, self-importance, conceit, or the assumption of intellectual superiority and the presumption of knowledge that is not in evidence or supported by any facts or experience.
"The War in Iraq is similar to the War in Vietnam" stated by Howard Dean is based on Dr. Dean's arrogance and self-importance, and not based on any understanding of current events or direct knowledge of the situation in Iraq.

Senator Kennedy repeating "Lie after Lie after Lie..." is evidence of his arrogance that seems to derive from little more than his family name, and not from his knowledge of the subject matter, or his understanding of events.

Contrast this to ignorance -- for example, claiming that Islam is a Peaceful Religion when in fact the religion is only peaceful to others who submit to it (the meaning of "Islam") and even then it is not peaceful to other "believers" who belong to different Islamic sects. This is not an example of arrogance as much as an example of ignorance, but the act of making such claims is similar to arrogance.
