称賛と慢心 Praise and Conceit


People tend to be easily conceited by praise. Probably because nothing is more comfortable than praise. However, conceit is a big pitfall. Because there is a risk of misjudgement by complacency. Exploiting this psychology, sales staffs of luxury shops (including department stores) pressure customers to buy their goods by lavish compliments. We must be careful because we will be easily deceived by the false praise. Furthermore, conceit, or arrogance easily developes to jealousy and anger, and causes sufferings. So, praise is a big risk.
