Does arrogance make the entire soul arrogant and ill?

SHAFAQNA – When the human being is inflicted with superiority complex in comparison with others, it is not like that such a condition is trivial or insignificant. Rather, in this case, the whole soul sees itself superior; it is correct that the soul has become ill in a special case (like knowledge, wealth, power, etc.), but this illness is not like that it only influences a particular case, rather it affects the whole soul, the whole soul becomes self-absorbed. For example, if someone becomes self-absorbed in connection with wealth, the whole soul is self-absorbed, not just when encountering another wealthy one, if such a person visits an ill person, wants his/her words to be preferred; why? Because he/she is wealthy. When enters a spiritual place (like a Mosque) where the criterion is spiritual, wants others to accept his/her words in another way, why? Because he/she has money; wherever this person goes the situation is the same [1].
