isn't being resolute of arrogance another way of acchieving something selfish? Since arrogance puts the person in an urge, even if it is not to obtain something, in a way, it is to selfishly change from this ''state of arrogance'' that the person will act.
Everything we do in some way benefits ourselves. Ex: you give up smoking to make your wife happy which in turn causes you less stress/ makes you feel like you are doing the right thing
An act can have the byproduct of benefiting oneself (I.e. feeling you did the right thing) without that product being the motivating driver. E.g. You help an elderly person up who has fallen while crossing the street because you are worried for their safety. After, you feel good for helping.
