I am fascinated and more then a little curious about self-promotion. Not the kind that you use to get hired or promote a new project or in a professional way, more of the spectacular kind of like the Xmas letter variety where everyone and all is so super great, but not just limited to that.

There are a couple of people we know (not connected in any way) who are the kind like “look at me everyone, I just bought a super expensive car” or “look I just bought a billion sq ft house - just in time for my quadruplets graduating from Yale”. I guess I find it contrary to what I was brought up with (or it could be my age pushing 50). I wonder where it comes from and does it really mean they are insecure or are they super over secure or are they just right? Since as I get older I don’t really care about that stuff so much but some people still do and I’m just curious why.
