Do you think that the fixed signs are prone to be the most arrogant?? Aka: Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, Taurus?
I think so!! Think about it…those signs…as opposed to..
Virgo, Gemini, Sagg, Pisces
Cancer, Aries, Libra, Capricorn
Yeah! I think it’s because being arrogant makes them feel even more like they have no reason to change their mind, makes them feel more confident in their opinion?
“Stubborness does have its helpful features. You always know what you are going to be thinking tomorrow.” — Glen Beaman
Well, I thought someone who is stubborn about changing their opinion is arrogant, because well..they think that their opinion is always right, no? That’s why they won’t change it…
Isn’t that arrogance? Thinking your opinion is always right? I dunno plz expalin to me the difference, even if subtle, please please I really want to know
Also, consider my reasoning for this in the question I just asked about this right here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080102235226AAGhEPQ&pa=FYd1D2bwHTHwLbNlEOw8RTZnrTwWbNckTgEVsaEQbAPzd0CeZoM61y7Ae.lJT4AGfth6l10LkVSd.w–&paid=asked&msgr_status=
Actually, I think this guy who said this, pretty much explains my point… Take a look
Entrepreneurs need to be confident and tenacious.
But not arrogant or stubborn.
There is a fine line dividing both.
It is easy to mistake confidence for arrogance and the same goes for tenacity. Some entrepreneurs think they are tenacious but are simply being stubborn. I think a way to test if someone is being confident or arrogant is too challenge their ideas. A confident human being won’t be easy to convince but he will likely take pleasure in being challenged. An arrogant person will not even allow you to challenge any of his or her ideas.
It is harder to detect whether someone is tenacious or stubborn. I remember being accused of being stubborn and later proving my point. That would mean that I wasn’t stubborn but just tenacious. But how can you test this?
I have been accused of being arrogant in the past (not recently) and stubborn too. I would like to think that these people didn’t see that I wasn’t being arrogant but simply followed my instinct and wouldn’t easily give up.
But I know it IS hard to see the difference so I don’t blame anyone.
Or is that an arrogant thing to say?
According to what he said I would gather that… If someone is arrogant they won’t even allow you to challenge any of their ideas (because they feel superior to you..and don’t even need to hear your point of view as they are sure it will not convince them anyway)
A stubborn person will cling onto a belief, even AFTER having had proven to them that their belief is wrong or even just plain irrational…hah that has happened with TWO aquarius I know, AND they even agreed that they WERE in denial, but that it was ok because argument argument argument, lol. They were open to hearing my opinion, though…I think …lol. Lol, I would have told them anyway. I guess only whether they are open to hearing your point of view or not is the one factor that would make someone ‘arrogant.’ Stubborn is just when they just reeeaaally have a hard time letting go of their point of view for no apparent reason. There we go, I got it =). Thanks, guys! LOL! Haha :)) *giggles….*
Ok, I think the thing here is that fixed signs are not just about stubborn opinions…..They are much more than that. They are named after the Latin root, fixus which means “to latch on” and as you can read on this site http://astrology.about.com/od/thequalities/p/FixedSigns.htm
they are just simply all about perseverance. But they have to “latch onto” something to persevere, right? So, it might come off as arrogance the way that they mightily “latch onto” their opinions so well….BUT this does not mean that their view of the world is arrogant. They don’t see themselves aBOVE anyone…..they just..well, need an idea to latch onto so they can feel secure and like they’re doing something worthwhile. It ain’t about arrogance. What I mean is, they don’t do it OUT of arrogance…like might Aries..hehe or well, actually like might any mode I guess.. 😛
All right. So now that I settled my own question, lol…
P.s. for the libra guy who says he has important points in his chart in cardinal
signs …”darkshadow” Are you sure you just don’t have a lot of signs in fire? or maybe even air, i don’t even know. I have the predispondency to think that extroverts are more likely to be arrogant while introverts are more likely to understand better that their point of view is not infallible and that they are not quite much “better” than too many others, really. I’m not sure at all though…that would be something else worth asking about lol! haha. Actually, I’m not sure I agree with that..I haven’t met an arrogant libra once, and they’re an air sign? (Even though you, Darkshadow, say you are arrogant and I think you might have been a libra)

Taurus the Bull is the villian. Anyone who is modeled in the image of a bull is all braun and no brain. Therefore he says his image anywhere and he starts bellowing about his power.
Answer by BooYow
I am an Aquarius with Scorpio Rising and I can be very stubborn. I don’t like people telling me what to do or what I should be doing. I think there is more to life than just falling in with the everyday “mundane” way of living. There is more to life than routine and being like everyone else.
Answer by Ethereal
well aries are very arrogant and they are cardinals… sags and geminis can be very cocky and arrogant as well and they are mutable (specially if they are competing against someone)… leos are arrogant by nature, taurus also are, but a lot more than any fire sign, they are exagerated in that term, in fact, i believe they are the most arrogant there is, scorpios are a little arrogant, but not too arrogant, they know their limits, same applies to aquarius… both also are a little more open minded than taurus, specially the aquarius… maybe the aqua is the less arrogant out of the 4 fix signs…
Answer by key7
ever seen a taurus and a scorpio argue? if you have then you know its definitely a toss between these two signs, neither will back down, both think they are correct no matter what. arrogance at its finest!
i also think libras are naturally arrogant as well as virgos but just not quite so dedicated haha.
Answer by kindscorp
Haha, cool question 🙂
As far as arrogance, I think Leos can be pretty out there, scorps and taurus are stubborn but that’s not the same as arrogant. I am scorp with taurus moon, you can imagine how I can get. 🙂
The coolest sign is Pisces, they can be elusive, but they are definitely mutable.
But I gotta say, as long as you are aware of yourself and your ways, these tendencies can be transcended.
I love getting humbled by experience!
