Is mândre positive or negative or can it be both ? Proud of having learned something. vs. To proud to talk to poor people.


I think it can be both, but for your negative example one would be more likely to use something stronger like "înfumurat" or "cu fumuri/cu aere/simandicos/cu nasul pe sus." :)

"Mândru/mândră" in the olden days could also refer to someone who was handsome/beautiful or could be used to refer to one's beloved. Many poems and folk songs talk about "Mândra mea."
