False Humility

False humility is also a form of pride. The person who is always hanging his head and has nothing good to say about himself is usually more prideful than the person who graciously accepts a compliment. “False humility,” Os Guinness has warned, “is actually self-driven and self-absorbed. A person who is falsely humble is a person who is truly proud.”
