False humility is a toxic trait and there are a few different ways that you can spot it. Humility is a great trait to have, but false humility deals with trying to impress others more than anything else. An easy way to spot this in people is that they always want to be put on a pedestal and feel as if they’re more important than others. Finally, they also will speak of doing good service but won’t actually do it.
- Humility is similar to modesty where we are able to see our place in a larger scope of the world.
- False humility is known as self satisfaction which deals more with impressing other people.
- People may have false humility because they believe it’s the only way for them to get ahead in their life.
“By being able to spot false humility in your life, you can make your interactions with others much more authentic.”
