Modest people are humble. They downplay their gifts and achievements and don’t think they are better than others. Despite this, modesty does not necessarily imply lack of self-esteem.
While modesty may get in the way of courtship at times, it may serve you well as you settle down, as your lack of grandiosity will make those you love feel safe, comfortable, and seen.
You don’t lean towards the spotlight but rather tend to share the credit with others, recognizing a team effort when there is one, and making sure you don’t receive too much attention and praise.
Your modesty likely makes you easy to get along with and safe to collaborate with and those you work with recognize it does not indicate a lack of ability, but rather a lack of arrogance about that ability.
You may possess an air of superiority and confidence that is not necessarily founded in fact. You’re prone to be more assertive than others, maybe even arrogant, and, taken to the extreme, may exhibit tendencies of narcissism.
