    I like this insightful Japanese proverb "Nou aru taka wa tsume wo kakusu- meaning a talented Hawk hides her/his talons. In my view, either downplaying or concealing your strengths, not showing off your talents in boastful manner, and being modest in life are always respected - not only in Japan but also anywhere in the world. I have also realized that those who are truly knowledgeable seldom show off, while the empty vessel always makes too much noise. Modesty is surely the great virtue that differentiates you as the "cut above the rest" in the society.
