If you’re not familiar with “humblebragging,” it’s when someone brags, almost always on social media, but tries to disguise it as a negative thing. Like, “Ugh, 13 people told me I looked hot today. So annoying!”
Well, according to a new study, people HATE humblebragging. In fact, the researchers found that we react more negatively to humblebrags than we do to people who just skip the charade and shamelessly brag.
So next time you want to post, “I’m so sick of having to show my ID when I buy liquor, I’m 32!” just write, “I look young.”
