You’ve heard it before. It’s that bragging statement that we make about how good we aren’t at something. When you complain about something positive. When you complain that your size 2 jeans are baggy (I got it off NCIS: Los Angeles).
It’s mostly subconscious. It’s mostly automatic. It says alot about you, and the thing is you have no idea that you’re doing it – because it’s meant to be humble.
