Healthy humility

There is good reason to believe that humans are naturally biased toward optimism and confidence – and their close cousins, pride and grandiosity. While this trait may have provided survival advantages during our long life on the plains of Africa, it can be an important barrier to optimal choices and progressive well-being in advanced society. It also suggests why increasing self-awareness is so closely associated with both increasing humility and improved quality of life. A short but interesting piece that touches on research into this natural eccentricity of ours is at The Modesty Manifesto.
