one of my all-time business mentors once told me there’s a big difference between self-promotion and promoting yourself but he also told me that if you don’t promote yourself then who will what he meant by that is it’s okay to brag it’s okay to have confidence it’s okay to let that shine through to other people and I’ll come back to this very topic at the end of this video but I want to talk about something you may have heard about it’s called a humble bragging you may not know the exact term of humble bragging but you definitely know the concept you definitely know what I’m referring to let me give you an example someone says to you man I am so exhausted and so tired of people hitting on me or maybe I am so stressed out I have all these opportunities coming at me for different jobs and I just don’t know which one to take and I don’t know if I even want to take another job you ever hear the term fishing for compliments in a lot of senses that form of humble bragging is doing just that you are disguising bragging through a somewhat facade of having a humble personality and a lot of times people don’t necessarily like that so in this video I’m gonna explain some of the research that has gone to prove that humble bragging is not the best approach it’s not the best approach to earn friends it’s not the best approach to get a job in fact researchers at the Harvard Business School recently found that basically humble bragging is some form of finding profit through self-promotion or stealth presentation what that means is that people that are doing that form of humble bragging are oftentimes seeing that they can have some form of personal gain later on down the line they’re gonna profit from it in one way or another whether it be financially or emotionally later on down the line they feel that if people think that I’m great or people think that I’m good at something or people think that I’m attractive or funny but I don’t throw it right in their face then it’s gonna be a win for me because they’re just gonna see that level of skill that I have but they’re never gonna actually have to hear me say it I won’t come across cocky that’s ultimately what they are finding but what’s really interesting is when we take this into a job interview setting which is probably where you would recognize humble bragging the most let me give you an example you’re sitting in a job the interviewer says hey well tell me what your biggest pitfall is or tell me your strongest negative attribute and people will often say well to be honest my biggest negative attribute is the fact that I like to help people too much or I work too much or I love my family too much sometimes they’ll say the most crazy things in a way to not sound cocky they want to come across humble but they still humble brag what was interesting is a separate study found that job interviewers were less likely to hire those that humble brag than hiring authorities in order to actually hire someone who is outright honest they they’re about their skill or about their negative attributes then I want to look at one more study that was absolutely mind-blowing for me and I think it’s gonna be illuminating for you as well it was found through multiple studies that those that humble bragged were severely disliked compared to those that actually outright brag and believe it or not even more so compared to those that even outright complained you see what this comes back to is the level of deceit that humble bragging presents when you’re humble bragging people pick up on we have these inherent abilities to notice this person is totally circumnavigating the fact that they’re bragging and we don’t like that our spidey senses go off we start figuring it out and if we go back to evolution it all makes sense we go back ten thousand fifteen thousand years and we’re looking at a primal level when we were hunters and gatherers okay we had to work together with people and when we communicate with people we meet new people we would have to know that they are honest integral people that would help us further our families and further our tribe or whatever the case may be so if someone approaches you and they are ultimately lying or they are humbly telling you how good they are at something well then it makes it so that later on down the line if they don’t perform everything goes to crap it can cause a serious issue so we have this inherent ability to detect this deceit and this reins true today especially in the workplace we don’t want to be around people that are trying to mislead us into liking them and that’s exactly what humble bragging does so the honest thing that you want to do is you want to promote yourself in a positive honest way be confident about what you’re good at it’s okay to brag if you you are really truly good at something people respect that and as long as you can live up to that and as long as you can own up to that later on it’s gonna pay off so find the confidence in yourself because if you humble brag it’s only gonna hurt you in the long run it’s gonna hurt you in business it’s gonna hurt you in the gym and it can definitely hurt you at home with your emotional relationships be honest be real with those around you but most importantly be real with yourself because if you’re deceiving others through humble bragging you’re probably truly deceiving yourself as well as always keep it locked in here in my videos I’ll see you in the next one so you can learn how to be the best versions of yourself

One of my all-time business mentors once told me, there’s a big difference between self-promotion and promoting yourself, but he also told me that if you don’t promote yourself, then who will. What he meant by that is it’s okay to brag. It’s okay to have confidence. It’s okay to let that shine through to other people. I’ll come back to this very topic at the end of this video, but I want to talk about something you may have heard about. It’s called humble bragging.

You may not know the exact term of humble bragging, but you definitely know the concept. You definitely know what I’m referring to. Let me give you an example. Someone says to you, “Man, I am so exhausted and so tired of people hitting on me.” Or maybe, “I am so stressed out. I have all these opportunities coming at me for different jobs and I just don’t know which one to take and I don’t know if I even want to take another job.” You ever hear the term fishing for compliments? In a lot of senses, that form of humble bragging is doing just that. You are disguising bragging through a somewhat façade of having a humble personality. A lot of times people don’t necessarily like that.

In this video I’m going to explain some of the research that has gone to prove that humble bragging is not the best approach. It’s not the best approach to earn friends. It’s not the best approach to get a job. In fact, researchers at the Harvard Business School recently found that basically humble bragging is some form of finding profit through self-promotion or self-presentation.

What’s really interesting is when we take this into a job interview setting, which is probably where you would recognize humble bragging the most, let me give you an example. You’re sitting at a job, the interviewer says, “Hey, well, tell me what your biggest pitfall is,” or “Tell me your strongest negative attribute.” People will often say, “Well, to be honest, my biggest negative attribute is the fact that I like to help people too much,” or “I work too much,” or “I love my family too much.” Sometimes they’ll say the most crazy things in a way to not sound cocky. They want to come across humble, but they still humble brag. What’s interesting is a separate study found that job interviewers were less likely to hire those that humble brag than hiring authorities were to actually hire someone who is outright honest, whether about their skill or about their negative attributes.

Then we’re going to look at one more study that was absolutely mind-blowing for me, and I think it’s going to be illuminating for you as well. It was found through multiple studies that those that humble bragged were severely disliked compared to those that actually outright brag, and believe it or not even more so compared to those that even outright complained. You see, what this comes back to is the level of deceit that humble bragging presents. When you’re humble bragging, people pick up on it. We have these inherent abilities to notice this person is totally circumnavigating the fact that they’re bragging. We don’t like that. Our Spidey senses go off. We start figuring it out. If we go back to evolution, it all makes sense. We go back 10,000, 15,000 years, we’re looking at a primal level when we were hunters and gatherers, okay, we had to work together with people. When we communicate with people, we meet new people, we would have to know that they’re honest integral people that would help us further our families and further our tribe, or whatever the case may be.

So, if someone approaches you and they are ultimately lying or they are humbly telling you how good they are at something, well then it makes it so that later on down the line, if they don’t perform, everything goes to crap. It can cause a serious issue. We have this inherent ability to detect this deceit, and this reigns true today, especially in the workplace. We don’t want to be around people that are trying to mislead us into liking them, and that’s exactly what humble bragging does, so the honest thing that you want to do is you want to promote yourself in a positive, honest way. Be confident about what you’re good at. It’s okay to brag if you are really, truly good at something. People respect that, and as long as you can live up to that, and as long as you can own up to that later on, it’s going to pay off.

As always, keep it locked in here on my videos. I’ll see you in the next one so you can learn how to be the best version of yourself.
