Re: Worthwhile/valuable/useful - are you?

Why dangerous? That's an aspect of my questions that I hadn't seen.
Humans tend to be subjectice and not objective and they will inadvertently compare their presumed worth, value, contribution with that of others and, in doing so, inflate, overestimate and embellish their own. Superiority and narcissim - not good things.

Of course this is a radical view, things are not black and white and there's many steps between the extremes. And to be fair, what others perceive as confidence, I perceive as arrogance, what others see as "knowing their worth", I see as entitlement. So I'm not the best person to have this discussion - though at least I'm aware of it
