What is the connection between inferiority complex and arrogance?

SHAFAQNA – The origin of the condition of arrogance is the shortage and inferiority that the human being feels inside him/her, and in this way wants to compensate for it. In another words, in fact as the human being grows in greatness to any extent and tolerance increases, he/she becomes humble, which is the real greatness. This condition is exactly opposite arrogance. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: No one’s arrogance and superiority complex can be without that inferiority which he/she finds in himself/herself [1].
