President General Eisenhower didn’t like to bring any attention to himself. He often substituted the word “I” for “we”. General MacAuthur his equal was the opposite.

Quote from the book: But the self-effacing Eisenhower was appalled by MacArthur’s self-aggrandizement and his habit of talking about himself in the third person.

Personality wise only I’m like Eisenhower. I’m self-effacing and I have a difficult time with self-aggrandizement personalities. I did read a quote this past week that said something like this: “You can get a lot done if you’re not concerned with who gets the credit.” That sits bad with me but I know it’s true.

Do you see yourself as Self-effacing or self-aggrandizement?
