Superbia

Hubris or arrogance often indicates being out of touch with reality and overestimating one’s own competence or capabilities, especially for people in positions of power. A man may have achieved something with his intellect of creativity, but he then forgets or refuse to acknowledge that his own abilities derives from a higher source.

Nikola Tesla was a genius and despite that he was humble enough to admit that the gift of mental power comes from God.

Max Planck said “both religion and natural science require a belief in God for their activities” and therefore we can put him on the list of humble scientists.

There is no need to be arrogant in order to achieve great things. It is indeed well known that arrogance has a protective function for inferiority complexes. Our society will make a quantum jump in his awareness and then we all will recognize the arrogance as what it really is. Imagine what this implies! People with a certain amount of power will loose their majesty because everyone will figure it out that their arrogance and pride is just a facade. But then they will not only figure it out, they will also stop to give them their support.
