You arrogant twat…

Doctors has to be arrogant

Arrogance – it’s all around us.

We see it in others everyday and sometimes we’re humble and self effacing enough to admit it’s in us to.

For as long as I can remember the negative connotation to this word has been immediate and has only been used to describe someone who to me is uncomfortably confident, bloody annoying and not to be listened to.

But it occurred to me that for every shitty thing in life there is generally a silver lining. So is there anything good about arrogance and do we need it?

Should we allow/welcome some arrogance to pervade our society?

Take surgeons, government, leaders for example…

Do they need to be arrogant on some level to perform their roles and responsibilities?

I would argue yes to a degree.

It may seem strange to have a consultant chatting to you before a major heart operation to be confident but not absolutely sure as hell that he can get you through this ordeal.

Or how about the pilot as he comes over the tannoy system… if he wasn’t oozing with arrogance that he will get you safely to your destination then I think it would put the shitters up most of us.

Just a thought anyways…
