When starting out and as you progress in your chosen field, you HAVE to care about what others think about you, to a point. Sad, but true. You can be the best _____ in the world, but if you are arrogant about it and get that reputation, good luck finding work. It's a fine balance between being humble and portraying excellence without arrogance. Not so easy sometimes.
