This article suggests ways to identify people who self-promote and show off when, in fact, they lack the talent to do what they claim they can do.


This article by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, writing for Fast Company, makes the following points:

  • One reason for bragging is that people rarely dispute claims as much as they should.
  • Research shows that fooling yourself is the best way to fool other people.
