Intellectual Humility - Resources
Humility in general is the virtue of facing up to the truth about oneself--neither overvaluing nor undervaluing one’s abilities and accomplishments. This virtue also involves admitting the limits of one’s epistemic perspective. The intellectually humble person does not deny her accomplishments, but shows a lack of concern about intellectual status, and is sensitive to the ways in which one’s beliefs can go wrong even though they seem right.
