Does a good-hearted considerate person have a right to look down on the selfish high maintenance and conceited?
Looking down on someone implies something about the way you are acting toward the person. I think that you can know that you are better than the other person, but don't give them the time of day by reacting to their selfishness or concietedness. Also, no one has the "right" to judge or look down on another person. Everyone is different in their own right. What would the world be if people were all the same? You may not get along with this person, but someone else may regardless of what you think. So the bottom line is, don't look down on someone just knowing that you are better than them should be satisfying enough. No, because that would lower you to their level. If at all possible and you have to deal with some of these people perhaps you could set a good example in hopes they may just clue in.
From the sounds of it, she's just a little selfish and conceited. Talk to her about this (not but calling her selfish or anything, but let her know that it feels like she doesn't care about you). If she won't listen, she might not care for you the way you care about her. Listening and caring is a big part of a relationship, and needs to work with both partners.
"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Loves is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It dose not take offense and is not resentful. Love take no pleasure in others people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes."

To be selfish is a learned behavior beyond the ages of 2-4 years old. A 2 year old is often selfish because they have not developed enough to know the difference, but an adult who is selfish is learned behavior. They have learned in their life that if they want something or act a certain way they get what they want. This is often being selfish.
