In previous generations, people may have thought arrogantly, but perhaps held back saying what was on their minds.
I've been cursed at by surgeons, and thanked profusely by surgeons. I've had instruments thrown at me, and nasty gloves snapped at me and not the kick bucket. I've also watched a surgeon lift his elderly neighbor and carry him in his arms to the ER.
It's PEOPLE who have the potential for arrogance and who make the willful choice to stain their reputation, and stain the hearts of others with their choices. And if that's what you call being defensive, you are wrong. That's what's called being polite.

My beliveness is related about them education from family, social and cultural peers, interactions on the life path and background. They are like that because they was growup like that!
Less self respect for self, here is another discussion, people loose their old values or interchange them with others, good or bad who knows, looool, but for sure, without some very well conturated values in your life you are only a leaf in the wind!
I don't point now the ethical norms of values, dosen't matter now, if they are good or bad, but you need to have ones and to strong adhere on them. So then, you know who you are, your identity, where you belong and what are your expectancies and you know how to respect your self in the light of your own values.
No values, not self respect.
