Are you talking about operator precedence? If so, then the answer is no. Overload as you wish, but the precedence of the operator is fixed in C++.

I should have added that when two operators have the same precedence, then their associativity rules come into play, and that you cannot change those rules as well. (You know that to change the associativity, you use parenthesis.)

No, operator precedence is - as phoffric wrote above - 'carved in stone', See e.g. http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/operator_precedence 

Operator precedence is unaffected by operator overloading.
