Intelligence or Arrogance

Freud is well known for his creation of the psycho-analysist theory that has led to him being considered the father of modern psychology. In his writings there is clearly a level of arrogance shown within his work whether it be as he dares others to be more frank than he is, or acting disapprovingly towards those stationed below him such as his household servants. In his writings he acts so self assured in his work but it does not appear that he often is willing to accept criticism to his theory. I wonder if Freud was a modern psychologist if his methods would still be acceptable or if his colleges and others would be as willing to accept his theories.
