Humble vs. Conceited: It’s nice to be recognized for special achievements in life, but nobody likes a bragger. That is why genuine people are humbled by their achievements and prefer not talking about them. They would much rather hear about other people’s achievements. Because fake people need to be the center of attention, they will constantly brag about their achievements, you might even hear them tell the same story more than once. They need to be the alpha of the group at all times.
In Front of You Vs. Behind You: If someone is a genuine individual and they have something to say about you, they will tell you to your face. They have no hidden motive and respect you enough to tell you. They hope that the conversation will resolve any issue that may have surfaced. Fake people are cowards when it comes to confrontation. They will smile when they see you, but the second you turn your back, you become their enemy. They love to gossip and enjoy drama.
Walk vs. Talk: Someone with a genuine personality will do everything in their power to not break a promise. If they do not follow through with it, they take ownership of it and do not resort to excuses. A fake person will talk a big game and will rarely come through. Unlike a genuine person, a fake person will give you a long list of excuses, and you might even notice that they will constantly use the same ones.
