Excellence & Mediocrity

Is mediocrity inherently arrogant? Excellence, it seems to me, tolerates all levels of performance, inviting others to improve whatever they do and go to a next level. Excellence is neither intimidated nor put off by mediocrity. Genuine excellence knows its own worth, but in doing so does not need to tear down others.
Mediocrity however, seems to operate differently. When confronted by a higher level of performance, it goes into attack mode launching blistering criticisms. Mediocrity sustains its own mediocre performance by down-grading anything that would challenge its status quo. Mediocrity is easily threatened while excellence is not.
