Behaving or looking as though one thinks one is superior to others

I know this is not an unusual word like the others we have posted so far, but this is one of the most evocative words for me. Is there anyone who can say the word supercilious without tipping their nose up to the sky? Just thinking the word makes me look upwards.

If there is a word similar to onomatopoeia where a word conjures up an image or makes you feel a certain way rather than sounding like the thing it means, then please let me know. :-)
