Humility as a character trade, is the quality of being modest or unpretentious. It's what keeps you from bragging about all the places you've traveled and the many languages you speak. It's characterized by a certain quietness or reserve, with no need to prove yourself. It's knowing your accomplishments or abilities, without feeling the need to brag or boast about it, but instead, let your actions speak to your ideals. To be humble is not to think less of yourself, but to think of yourself less.
