This thing called “Humble bragging” must stop & please don’t do it if you are reading this. Many people have a way of bragging while pretending to be modest. This is called humble bragging. You’ve heard them before, the girl who makes fun of her ridiculous diet when she wants to draw attention to her attractive figure or the guy who complains about how terribly he plays when he wants to make you aware of.
Such people use self-deprecation to hide their boasting but others can see through this. This behavior is especially dislikable because they are not only bragging but they are also trying to deceive others.
