      How do you react when someone gives you a compliment? Do you generally accept compliments, or do you normally conceive that you don’t really deserve the compliments?

      In the past it was a bit hard for me to accept compliments, but after a few years, now I am learning to accept them. If I am doing a good job, I will notice that and If someone( a teacher or a friend) says a compliment I can accept it.

        * if someone says a compliment = if someone gives me a compliment (collocation)
        I concur with you on the role of our conscience in making a judgment on the sincerity of compliments. As a matter of fact, we cannot fool ourselves.

      I usually express my gratitudes and respect toward who compliments me and sometimes reciprocate. I try not to have bad feeling about receiving compliment . I think that it can increase my self esteem and if I think I don’t deserve such compliment it can be a motivation for me to work on my weak points and progress in future.

      I actually when someone give me compliments, most of the times I think that
      I actually deserve that like……One week ago in mathematics exam I get TOP 1
      And I get happy for 2 minutes.
      I tell to my parents…..
      My mother said: good job.
      My mother compliments was very normal.
      My dad: perfect soroosh , even in that night in the class with doctor you give your presentation veryyyyy nice.

        I agree with you, Soroosh. There is nothing wrong with getting positive energy from other people, especially our friends.
