Hubris Syndrome : An emergent outcome of the complex social process of everyday interaction ?

  title={Hubris Syndrome : An emergent outcome of the complex social process of everyday interaction ?},
  author={C. Rodgers},
Hubris has been characterized as exaggerated pride, overwhelming self-confidence and contempt for others (Owen, 2006). It is often taken to indicate a loss of contact with „reality‟ (as reflected in the lived experience of others) and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities. It is especially thought to come to the fore when the person exhibiting these characteristics is in a formal position of power.
