Talking to A, I asked, 'Do I behave in a condescending manner and be boastful?'. I felt safe to ask the question and also felt safe enough to listen to 'A' opinion.
"Yes, you're condescending in general, not boastful." A replied.
Often, I'm not conscious of how I behave with others. I was okay to realise how I behave at times. Time to work on it! I felt grateful to have people whom I could ask and be okay with whatever answers they give. Many a times, because of insecurity and criticism, I deny my personality traits. Thanks A for pointing it out in a helping manner.
