Not sure if it counts as a brag but what about when the Don gave his best wishes to the haters and losers on 9/11 as if that is a day to celebrate

Anyone who bragged about pulling an all-nighter for work.

ME:: So what you're saying is, you're highly inefficient, and are now compromised due to lack of sleep? Or are bragging and want a cookie?

This. The petty "haha, 5 hours of sleep bro? You're so lucky, try 2!" is so pathetic and cringe-inducing.

  • bragging about money spent at gentlemen's clubs
  • intermittent fasters/anyone practicing a fad diet thinking it's god's gift to nutrition
  • writing letters to your linkedin/facebook/instagram followers on some mundane accomplishment. I don't give a fuck that you passed CFA Level 1, that you're moving from bank A to bank B. as I've said before, change your status, notify the people you really care about (former bosses, mentors, customers, etc) in person or via phone if you want to personally thank them. these long posts are thinly veiled humblebrags that accomplish nothing but making you look like a douche
  • endurance athletes. I don't care that you ran 11 miles this weekend, maybe your run group does, or if you're doing it for charity, but no one gives a fuck. exercise is not a personality
  • bragging about how many countries you've visited when all I can see are close up selfies of you and a soft 6 you convinced to go with you. travelling means experiencing other places outside of your comfort zone, not seeing what your face looks like in a different time zone
  • bragging about a trade without discussing your entire portfolio (yeah, you owned TSLA, but you also bought bitcoin when it was at 13,000 in 2018. you're a cherry picking prick

It's not a personality but it's still an accomplishment (I say as the guy who can barely run 1 mile, let alone 11). Is it the most impressive thing in the world? No, but running a half marathon isn't something most people can just get up and do, so I don't see why it's so far over the edge to brag about it.

- bragging about a trade without discussing your entire portfolio (yeah, you owned TSLA, but you also bought bitcoin when it was at 13,000 in 2018. you're a cherry picking prick

So... basically every pitch any financial institution has ever made to a client? I remember putting league tables together...

answering in reverse order. I'm talking about people tweeting about their stock picks that worked out well and bragging about them as if they're warren buffett. the best thing to do as an investor is to keep a good trade idea to yourself unless you're going to write a soros-like diary. hubris is a CAGR killer, so yes, I despise people talking about their TSLA and AAPL shares without mentioning they also bought UBER at the market on IPO day

on the first one, sure, if you've lost weight over a long period of time, share that. that's an actual accomplishment. if you did a marathon for charity, if it was your first endurance run, sure. I wouldn't talk about it, but I'm a sociopath. my issue is this: posting about your workouts as if they're accomplishments. they're not.

and the logic about talking on things that most people can't get up and do, I don't see the point because you're doing it for selfish reasons. the marathon example: did you just do it to do it? or did you do a susan g komen race and want to let your friends know so they can donate? first one, don't brag, second one, announce that shit. let's say you make VP and some 40 under 40 list, do you brag about it? dude, you're already in Forbes, they're doing the bragging for you. put that shit on your profile and get back to work, people will notice, trust me.

TLDR - agree to disagree

Have to agree on the running point, even as someone who's fairly into it. Uploading the occasional post-race photo with your medal or whatever is all good with me, but posting a screenshot from Strava of every run route in order to humble brag about the time you completed it in is an incredibly lame move.

Bragging about having attending a top High School (Collegiate, Harvard-Westlake, Boarding Schools)

You're basically bragging that you wrote a good essay in 8th grade.
