It’s nice to be recognized for special achievement in life, but nobody likes a bragger. While some misunderstand humility as low self-esteem or self-denigration, genuine people are humbled by their achievements and prefer not talking about them. They would much rather hear about other people’s achievements. This is because they are more oriented towards others, then themselves. A humble individual has self-knowledge, and is aware of her or his limitations as a human being.
Fake people need to be the centre of attention. They will constantly brag about their achievements. You might even hear them tell the same story more than once and it’s not because they have memory issues.
