on interactions

I never know quite how to interact with someone who effusively compliments me. Do I stand there and accept them at the risk of seeming bigheaded? How does one accept compliments in a way that is simultaneously humble and confident? Do I attempt to reciprocate at a similar breakneck speed? Do I reject the praise?

And simultaneously, I never find effusive compliments to truly be flattering — they simply can’t all be true, and so are none of them genuine?
