Most bodybuilders I know in person are surprisingly down-to-earth people with extremely mellow attitudes.
There might be an occasional one online who sounds conceited, but first that's just online and goofing around, and second I think there's a psychological effect there where we notice them a lot more.
Naturally bodybuilders have some level of vanity, looking in the mirror and admiring their body. But to them their body is like a subject, somehow detached from themselves, that they sculpt towards some idea of perfection, with a lifetime of discipline. I think because of that, we're tempted to view them as conceited people, and tend to notice the odd time when one of them happen to be and generalize quickly, when we might not think twice about all the down-to-earth and mellow ones out there.2

#generalisation672 the ones who think they're superior are those who have let their hard work get to their heads. not all are like that, and i have met some very down to earth ones, both off and on this site.
but yeah, the ones who are all cocky get no respect from me.0
