There is a word called “destroy a talent by praising it too much.”, which means praising a person excessively, and the final result is to be harmed by this person.

Everyone has their advantages and disadvantages. Don’t praise others’ advantages too much, and don’t be too harsh on others’ shortcomings.

The more a person loves to show off these three things, he is trying to flatter you. Because the more you show off something, the more he wants to get something, and you will hurt him in the end.

1. Show off your connections

“Be low-key in life, and be high-key in doing things.”

Some people like to show off their connections in their circle of friends, saying who is their connection, or what their background is.

Such people just want to satisfy their inner sense of superiority and find a platform for themselves to speak.

Really powerful people are low-key because they don’t need to prove anything to others.

If you like to show off your connections, you have already lost. Because others will think you are superficial and have no substance.
