If a person has to go out of their way to prove something so others can see it, doesn't it mean that what said person was trying to prove isn't really as prominent or as good as he thought it was? Because if it really WAS that good, he wouldn't have to prove it. And when I say "it", I'm talking about anything, it could be a skill, a trait, a talent or whatever.
So do agree or disagree?

Yeah. I think thats the difference in beinf cocky vs confident about something. To walk around throwing your skill/looks/talent it everybodys face and screaming how great you are usually means you're not, and even if it is true... most people don't like that so you're kinda shooting yourself. To just admit with confidence something means you know you have skill/looks/talent and people can take it or leave it, either way you're standing firm.1

It's situational I think. I'll be the first to admit I boast lol. If you have it flaunt it. If you don't have it then don't show off. It's not set in stone.. Just depends on personality.1
