A study about humble people, which was conducted by Jordan LaBouff, a UMaine psychology lecturer, was the subject of a post on the Huffington Post website. The study found that humble people are more willing than arrogant people to help someone in need. LaBouff, who is also a UMaine’s Honors College preceptor, conducted the study while he was at Baylor University. Toronto’s Globe and Mail newspaper also noted the study on its website.
