I think it definitely depends on the person, but I think there's a stereotype of introverts as more intelligent than extroverts, and when you're constantly told that you're special and more intelligent and sophisticated than other people, that can tend to go to your head. But again, I think an extrovert could easily be just as arrogant as an introvert.

I'm some kinda mix of introverted and shy but I don't think a lot of people view me as arrogant, not that I know of.

I don't think either is more arrogant than the other. I'm an introvert and I'm absolutely not arrogant, but I get the feeling that most people see me as a bit arrogant until they get to know me. I think it's the same with extroverts, it all depends on your point of view

I can see how you can say introverts are seen as rude but not sure why you would say they are arrogant. Most introverts just want to be left alone. That's not arrogance it's just an inability to deal with other people.

Meh, arrogance has nothing to do with how introverted one is. Besides there is a difference between arrogance and simple pride in one's skills and or accomplishments. Humility may be a virtue but taken too far it is a vice after all.

No. How can you be arrogant if you are silent?

Mind readers? I mean it's not hard to figure out if someone is arrogant, just listen to them speak, eye contact, expression. I'm layed back, tolerant and kind, as most Introverts are. Sure we can be explosive every now and then, but that doesn't mean we can come off as arrogant.

Sure maybe in our head we are arrogant, but on the outside we show restraint

I am an introvert and I have had many people think I'm rude because I would be to shy to say anything to them. So they take it as I don't like them or I'm being rude. When in actual fact I usually like the person and it takes me too long to think of just the right thing to say so they don't think I'm a weirdo.. then I miss my chance and they end up thinking I just blanked them and I'm an asshole xD

If anything I feel like it would be the other way around.

Unfortunately for most introverts people view us as aloof or stuck-up because we can prefer to stick to ourselves. Personally I cant carry converstaions well because I'm afraid of saying something that will ruin my relationship with the other person forever and then it just makes things worse.

This is my experience as well. I've been called arrogant before by people who barely know me, and make snap judgments based on my first interaction with them. I think it's mostly because I don't talk much and when I do I can sometimes be a little blunt with people. I also rarely smile and can come off as a little intimidating. The truth is I just get stuck in my own head a lot. I'm constantly trying to think of the perfect thing to say and will play out the whole conversation in my own head even going so far as to guess at what their responses will be to what I say. Then when it actually comes for my time to speak I just blank on what I want to say. I'll end up giving a one word answer to a complicated question and then sink back into my chair and resume staying quiet.

Nope. I'm a bit of an ambivert but I have friends who are introverted. They're mostly just reserved, lazy, or shy people. Not necessarily bad people though haha

I completely agree with your answer, almost wrote basically the same thing lol. But yeah, it's really a case by case deal. I have an intro/extro personality(not sure if there's a word for that lol), partly because i moved around a lot. And I get kinda arrogant sometimes, depends on my mood lol.
