Here are 7 Ways to deal with arrogant people

1. Have high self-confidence:

One of the best ways to face an arrogant person is by displaying your high confidence. Always enter into conflicts with arrogant people only when you are strong and have a depth of knowledge about a matter.
Only then you’ll know where are they going wrong. It is important to point them out. It will help you get less victimized by them. You will notice how their behavior changes when that can’t relate to you. Instead, they would start saying bad things that are unjustifiable. But have faith in yourself. Confusing them in their own words is your bigger trick.

2. Remember they are insecure:

Try finding sympathy in yourself if you can. Arrogant people bullies and harasses people to take control of them. It’s just a reflection of their fear of being controlled. They would never admit their wrongs and stuck to pretenses. Thus they would never take account of your advice or suggestions, no matter how hard you make him try to believe. As being self-centered and the inability of open-minded, their life experiences are less. It becomes too hard to sympathize with someone of this quality.
Do not put them down. Just let them enjoy the fruits of their insecurities because they are never able to see their shortcomings.

3. Don’t let it get to you:

Once you allow them to rule or control you, they won’t leave a dot to not put you down. They have a very low mentality of finding happiness in other’s troubles. Much like a narcissistic nature. This is much easier said than done. Just imagine, what if the person isn’t trying to be rude towards you and just try hard to figure out the bigger view. There could be other reasons for a person’s conduct. Try spotting them out and blur out these scornful criticisms.
Just laugh it out. Do not stress over it.

4. Be empathetic, but don’t try to fix the person:

One’s demand for superiority is profoundly grounded and ranges from lower appreciation to a deep craving for approval to a lack of compassion for those who seem less successful. Only the domineering person can deal with such a problem and with a continued push. On the other side, it brings peace to your heart and possibly to the circumstances if you have compassion for the grief of others.

5. Be mindful:

Whatever we decide to do, we should do them carefully and with much love as practicable. They make others lose their temper and become the worst version of themselves. You need to be very careful while handling these people. They are rotten from inside and would spread that rot within us too. We should be careful while dealing with them. Try to perform the sport of your life rather than trying to fit into someone else’s. Be faithful to yourself always.

6. Try changing the topic of the conversation:

If nothing works wonders, try to change the topic of conversation. Arrogant people love to dominate over one particular topic, and if the decision to change the topic has been taken, they will bounce back. They will become defenseless. If you try switching to something that is neutral or something you know more about, they will try to find a way to jump back to the previous topic. They play dominating roles in our society. When people like us ask them anything out of the syllabus, they wouldn’t answer them or might speak badly about you. After all, this is what they know.
You should try to be calm in such situations.

7. Avoid interaction at all possible means:

If you are in close proximity with such a person, your days can be tough. Do whatever it takes, to lessen the effect of this soul. Do not get close to them or park cars near their cars, I mean never!
When you meet them just smile and exchange glances. You might say “good morning”, “good day” just in case, or occasional “hmm”.
Do not let them know that you’re avoiding them and don’t want to interfere in any of their matters.
Find more ways to walk out and ignore these people. To maintain your own understanding, it’s best to keep a proper distance between you.
Just dodge them by any means!
