When you are given a compliment, do you usually acknowledge it or suggest that you really don't deserve it?

It's funny because I usually turn away shily and express that I don't deserve it. However, I have learned that that is not the gracious way of doing it. Rather, it is etiquette that when someone offers a compliment, that you accept it so you can be generous to them. A lot of times, the compliment isn't just about you, but also about them feeling better.

It depends on the compliment. Things for which I work hard for like my education for example, I graciously accept compliments. Things for which are not really in my hands, like my appearance, I kind of brush off.

That was an answer that I probably would have given if someone had asked me this question. I tend to be the same way.

It depends on what it was for. sometimes in my last job, I ws complimented for things my grandmother or mother taught me to do, and I always said so, and that it was nothing special. however, now, if i'm complimented, I usually just say thanks
