Not talking about or reconising your own achivments despite how good they are.
There are way better definitions about humility than this. I don't even kow why you're still reading this. There are plenty of more interesting words to look up. I reccomend irony or cynical.They're far better than this...

Human utility. A lack of arrogance and entitlement.
Who we were on the planet, and who we might become if we survived, was a question best faced with humility. Maybe our purpose was to serve other life, the animals and the trees, and to let go the notion that the earth and its creatures exist to serve humanity.

What a mid-evil-times knight experiences after being bested in battle. Something knights seek as a way of finding someone worthy enough for them to serve. A knight without humility is a knight without a banner to ride under. What king Arthur teaches Lancelot in Excalibur. The General breaking, humbling, or humiliation of a being, after which they realize they are not invincible and learn their place in the world and respect for others who can, and will, stand them on their head. Similar to what the TV show Bully Beatdown tries to teach the undisciplined. An experence better learned sooner in life while stakes are low, rather than adulthood, when other people will not meet Insolence with patience.
"I am Lancelot of the lake. I have yet to find as king worthy of my sword" "That is a wild boast, you lack a knights humility" "Not a boast, but a curse, for I have never met my match in joust or duel" -Excalibur 1981
