Assertiveness confused with arrogance

Has this ever happened to you?

This is something pretty common. Sometimes I over-react (even if I haven't got this feeling) and other people think I'm arrogant and insolent, while I just wanted to keep my position.

Do you relate?

No, I don't think this has really happened. At least, not with assertiveness. I once made a comment my mum mistook for me looking down on people, but I quickly took it back. I can be assertive, but it's always in a kind of quiet way, which people tend not to judge as arrogance purely because I'm not making a lot of noise.
