Self-righteous people are proudly certain that whatever they say or do are totally correct and justifiable or they believe they are morally superior. It’s as if they have never done anything wrong in their lives. Not only their behaviour, their ideas too they feel are morally better than those of other people. Such an inflexible attitude tends to cause intense annoyance to other people.

Self-righteous people are adamant they know everything. They say what they want to say and that’s all it matters. They are unwilling to listen to anyone else’s opinions. What other people say they dismiss as irrelevant. What is relevant is what they say. They are not in the least bothered about how ignorant they are or how little they know. They are very sure they know all.

These people speak in a way that shows they think they are always right. They blame humanity for the current state the world is in, and offer impractical suggestions to solve the global problems. They have no hesitation to proclaim how righteous and morally right they are and bemoan the failure of others to follow their ways of life. As is the case with self-righteous people, they do not typically practise what they preach so that simply, they are not as righteous or decent as they portray themselves to be.
