    I tend to give the person a compliment also, because I appreciate what is being said about me but I don't look for those compliments.

    It's weird, but I love to give compliments, when they are genuine. But I hate it when someone compliments me.

    it makes me uncomfortable-i know that is not the confident answer. The confident answer would be to accept the compliment and say thank-you, then when possible give compliments, make others day a little better along with your own.
