    Do any of you know what the qualities are of a self righteous person? I am just trying to figure out some people that I know. Thanks!

    Grammy, do you mean what good qualities self righteous people usually display? If so, here's a list from the Enneagram type 1 (the Reformer, Critic, or Perfectionist) which often comes off as self-righteous:

    - conscientious, intense sense of right and wrong, personal and moral values
    - Highly principled, strive to be fair, objective and ethical
    - Sense of responsibility, personal integrity, and having a higher purpose.

    If you meant what defines the self-righteous, here is my personal opinion:
    - Believes they know what is best for themselves and everyone else. Wish others would just do what they say for their own good
    - Becomes hyper-critical and judgemental in any confrontation
    - Only treats like-minded people with respect

    Does that help?
