Nothing wrong with taking a little pride in one's awesomeness from time to time.

Re: Are you awesome?

I grew up in a culture where self praise is utterly frowned upon, so it's a concept I have a great deal of trouble understanding.

I'm far too British for this thread.
The British are, by definition, TOTALLY awesome. It's depressing really.
FIXED!

That's more like it. There's a reason why only Britain is 'Great'.

After a meeting last night for a documentary I'm tempted to change my mind on my answer. I might not be awesome, but at least I can be entertaining

If you believe your awesomeness makes you better than other people, if you go around boasting and bragging, then you have a big ego.
I have to disagree with you on this. I think that's the sign of a small, weak ego; one that can only feel important at somebody else's expense. On the other hand, somebody like me, who has an ego the size of the planet Jupiter, is secure enough to acknowledge the greatness in others and to admit that there are things I have no talent for. I can even end a sentence with a preposition and feel no embarrassment whatsoever.
Actually, I think this is simply of my slightly misusing the word "ego," in the same way the poster to whom I was responding misused it -- and the way a lot of people misuse it, to mean arrogance, or an exaggerated sense of self-worth, when really it is just a sense of self-worth, or self esteem. I agree with you entirely!

Re: Are you awesome?

That's true, people do seem to use ego as a synonym for arrogance.
