Ask yourself questions about humility to help you better understand why a relationship between you and another person may be strained or broken.
These questions are part of a series on understanding how your personality affects your relationships, especially those that are strained or broken. Since humility is tied in to many other personality traits, it deserves its own category of questions.
Exploring Your Personality #17: Humility
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS
- In the old Aramaic language, I have been told, humility is “the willingness to see the needs of others and to meet those needs if possible.” Using that definition, would I consider myself humble? Is so, why? If not, why not?
- Do some people consider me too humble, always deferring to others and even allowing people to walk on me?
- Do people claim I have a superior attitude and always seem to look down on others? If I reject this description of me, what is it that people see in me that may cause them to feel that way?
- What do the answers to these questions say about my relationship with others?
