Synonyms of "Haughtiness" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between haughtiness and arrogance and insolence and rudeness ?

1) Haughtiness seems to be the same as arrogant, so in principle they are interchangeable. But to be honest, I never heard the word before, so I think arrogant is more common.

2) Insolent and rude are not interchangeable. Rude means that you treat people in a bad way (for example, offend them, say bad things about them, swear at them). You can be rude with anyone, even people you don't know.

3) Insolent, on the other hand, means that you defy people that you are supposed to respect. Thus, this only applies to relationships with people in a higher position (for example, disobeying your parents or the police).
