the problems in aikido are two... ignorance and arrogance. the solutions are also two... humility and compassion.

In hopes that what I said in the earlier post not be misconstrued, I would like to add this.

I believe those whom express desire and effort to aspire to humility and to be humble are very admirable.

But alas and again, I am not one of those. I am just going to keep going on being just who I am.

arrogance is a human trait

aikidokas are human

The road is long...
The path is steep...
So hire a guide to show you the shortcuts

accepted maresa, but is the purpose of "blending with our partner" or "respect your partner's ki" should at least lower our arrogance level, not increasing it?

Not so far ;-)

I wonder if there's been any sociological research into the phenomenon - relationship between personality & martial art studied.
