14 signs you’re an ambitious person (who some mistake as arrogant)

By | Jelena Dincic |

Do you think of yourself as ambitious only to have other people think of you as arrogant?

Here’s the thing: people often confuse the two because they have some things in common.

Both ambitious and arrogant people are focused, driven, and determined.

Being ambitious is a positive quality – it means you’re focused on achieving success, whereas arrogance is quite off-putting – it means you feel like you’re better than everyone else.

Let’s take a look at 14 signs that you’re an ambitious (and not arrogant) person:

1) You’re always striving to go above and beyond what is expected

Now, you can see why this might be mistaken for arrogance.

There’s no “doing the bare minimum” with you. You’re a perfectionist and you’re ambitious, so it’s only natural that yo’d want your boss to notice how good a job you’re doing.

But how do you think it looks to your co-workers?

They just wanna get the job done and go home, but then you come along giving it your all and they think you’re just “showing off”.
