A Condundrum

At Yale University, "New York Times" op-ed columnist David Brooks will teach a course (for credit, natch) on humility.

Leaving aside one's opinions on Brooks's work, or the even more interesting question of how this course fits into one's management science major, I still can't get my head around it.

If a person was REALLY humble, I mean, just the Michael Jordan of self-abnegation, how would they ever summon up the ego to say "Oh, yeah, I can teach people not to make too much of themselves. They just have to be like me."
