Superiority complex refers to a subconscious neurotic mechanism of compensation developed by the individual as a result of feelings of inferiority.

The feelings of inferiority in this specific complex are often brought on by social rejection, possibly as a result of the individual's inattentiveness to hygiene, appearance, or lower intelligence as compared to others.

A Superiority Complex is the belief that one holds some value (societal or monetary) over another and acts as if they were born from a golden womb. Superiority Complexes are often seen in low-income neighborhoods when a member of the community gains more capital than their neighbors, and is most commonly associated with upper-middle and 'upper' class members of society.

While often involving tradable goods or currency, Superiority Complexes can also stem from sexism and IS NOT limited to either sex. Anyone can be uppity, snooty, snobbish, or pretentious. It doesn't fucking matter where you come from or what you were born as.
