    Well, superstition generally references to supernatural forces at play, which makes me think it isn't that. Arrogance is just being conceited, which also doesn't apply. Heresy is more involved with contrary beliefs to religion, so the only thing left would be violence. If you are easily convinced, you might be more easy to convince to commit an injustice
