Additional details

Ask a typical Norwegian in Norway to talk about himself and he will be quite modest and humble. But ask the same Norwegian abroad to talk about his country and he will lose all sense of humility. How can this be? Pellegrino’s talk will look at the extent to which humility is an important part of the national mindsets around the world and how too much humility can actually stop you from achieving the ultimate goal; namely, “la dolce vita” (the good life and happiness).
