The humble believer is self-aware and self-accepting.

The proud believer is self-deceived.  And filled with irritation/self-contempt, or bummed, in failure.  The proud believer does not handle failure well.  His whole life is based on failure-avoidance.  And this weirds him, and his relationships.

The humble believer enjoys himself in failure, and enjoys learning from failure/mistakes.  The proud believer only has fun when things go as expected, but the humble believer has fun no matter what.  The humble believer is never humble for long.  Especially an Irishman on St Patrick’s Day.
