An attitude of believing oneself to be superior or of a "higher class." For example, a "highbrow company" is one in which a majority of the staff has a graduate degree, and the company only wants to hire the "right" people who have gone to the "right" schools and who have the "right" mindset. These companies look at lowbrow companies with contempt.
