    So from Zee's 'like and dislike' thread and scottydogs interesting observation, How do you see yourself ~ Humble or Arrogant?

    Myself I would like to think of as humble ~ but in a 'Jeeves' kind of fashion.

    And it would be fun ~ and evil :devil:, to see what you think of other posters.

    For me:

    Humble:

    JustKate,
    Trampledamage,
    Zee,
    Yeoman Randi,
    RJD.

    Arrogant:
    ~ in a good way (not that being humble is bad! But being a little more 'say what you want way ~ Oh shit this is going to go way wrong but anyway...):

    Holdfast,
    Jadzia,
    JuanBolio,
    Iguana_tonante,
    and most from TNZ which is why I stay in Misc.

    :luvlove: you all!

    K'Eh ~ out of her head on painkillers and Baileys :)

    So come on ~ name and shame :bolian:

    I'm glad to see my thread has created spin-offs all of a sudden. :bolian:

    As to the question at hand.... I'm going to be absolutely honest and say that I have absolutely no idea how I see myself.

    Maybe not exactly humble - more like modest, shy, introverted, sometimes polite.

    Maybe not exactly arrogant either - but honest, proud, insistent, sometimes controversial.

    So, to answer the question: probably neither, really.

    I'm extremely humble. In fact, I'm the most humble person that has ever lived!

    I'm trying to develop an arrogant side for the affect, but it goes against the grain....

    Goddammit! Three posts in, and I'm still beaten to the, "My humility is what makes me so great," joke!

    I have no right to give myself a label. All that matters is what everyone else thinks I am.

    For me, it depends. I believe humility to be a positive trait, and so I try to remain humble, but every once in a while I show a ridiculously huge arrogant streak. Just ask my wife. I'm so glad she puts up with me.

    As for other posters: I have no idea. I suspect that people's online personality differs quite a bit from their real-life personality. Plus I just don't people here that well.

    Your humility can still make you great, but I'm the greatest. You'll never be more humble than I am.

    I'm arrogant enough to think there are times I am absolutely right but humble enough to recognize the times when I'm absolutely wrong.

    Lately I've seen myself as Arrogant.....Recent events on one forum have made me re-evaluate myself.

    -I can't help it that my brain is almost the same as a wikipedia that I appear as a know it all,I just like to have the facts-

    I'm a true Romulan at heart apparently.

    I like to think I'm humble but I can be an arrogant bastard. ;)

    Let me know if you think otherwise.

    I consider myself a humble person, but I don't expect that many others would agree. I'm conscious of a significant gulf between my threatened and unthreatened states of mind - the majority of social contacts falling, to a greater or lesser extent, into the former category - and external projections thereof.

    If I'm humble, it's because I want to be humble. If I'm arrogant, it's because I need to be arrogant. There are times when one needs to be called upon. In business, I am sure, I am confident, and yes, I am arrogant. In my personal life, I am usually humble unless I need to be arrogant and headstrong.

    So it varies.

    I tell my staff and students there's an easy way to tell when I'm right.

    I spoke.

    Being arrogant is something that I very much need to work on.

    I voted "arrogant" without even the need to see the first post... and it turns out I was right!

    You are absolutely correct, darling. As I'm fond of saying, my ego is the size of a gas giant: several small moons could orbit around it.

    I like however to think that I am poised: only insecure people are afraid to admit it when they are wrong. I am secure enough to own my mistakes, and apologize for my misbehaviours, yet never doubt about myself.

    I like the definition I've read somewhere: I always think I'm right, but I know I'm not right always.

    Wrong. All that matters is what you think you are. O wait, that's me being arrogant again. ;)

    Exactly.
