Having a high opinion of yourself leads to arrogance. You become more pompous and full of yourself once your self esteem becomes dangerously high.
TheRealSpassky101

Con

The title of this debate is "Having a high opinion of yourself leads to arrogance." While this is true by definition in huge amounts, you can still have a relatively high amount of self esteem and still not be arrogant. Having high self esteem is a good thing; you don't want to always look down on yourself. It can lead to arrogance, but in general, having self esteem will not lead to arrogance.
