High sidity

other word formation type Adjective
Acting with the belief that one is superior to others; uppity
 
High sidity is supposed to be used as a criticism of someone’s behavior. The word ‘high’ might correspond with ‘high’ in the phrase ‘high society’, given their similar meanings. In this case, ‘high’ is used in a metaphorical sense, as if the person in question thinks ‘highly’ of themselves. In other words, the person views themselves with a lot of value. It is possible that ‘society’ in ‘high society’ was altered in some way to give rise to ‘sidity’ due to similarities in the two words; however, this is only speculation and there is no evidence supporting it.
Etymology : The etymology is unclear; it might have originated from similar phrases such as ‘high society’
