Self-appointed ...

Business networking sites seem to be full of people awarding themselves (without any discernible hint of irony) grand descriptive titles. "Guru" is one that is currently making me irritable. "Visionary" is another. And what exactly is a "maven"? Descriptive words like these should really - really - only be used to describe someone else, not oneself. To lay claim to being a guru or a visionary is easily done but smacks of serious lack of self-awareness, let alone appropriate humility.
