Are the very intelligent people also inherently arrogant?
I remembered that while watching Githu Muigai’s submissions and you get a feeling that he knows he is intellectually superior to the common advocate. I have also seen this phenomenon in;
Lawyer Maina Wachira
Most arrogant people have certain deeply entrenched insecurities, suffer from inferiority or superiority complexes, or fear rejections, and arrogance is a subconscious attempt to compensate for it. Some intelligent people either fear rejections or have superiority complex, therefore, and they use arrogance to assert their presumed dominance.
Otherwise, there are many super intelligent people who are humble and down to earth because they don’t have to prove anything to anyone.
There may be another way to look at this:

Dunning-Kruger effect, in psychology, a cognitive bias whereby people with limited knowledge or competence in a given intellectual or social domain greatly overestimate their own knowledge or competence in that domain relative to objective criteria or to the performance of their peers or of people in general
Intelligence has little if any significant correlation with personality. It’s like arguing that short people are more angry or tall people more humble. A lazy stereotype. Just like height, intelligence or high IQ is randomly distributed across both gender and race. Any other argument is cheap anecdotal make-believe.
