is closely related to Self-esteem
but is clearly different: where Self-esteem stands for pride, Approbativeness
stands for vanity. It relates to the way a subject will hanker for success
and approbation from others. Thus: vanity, quest for approval and acclamations.
Strongly developed, especially with a strong Self-esteem, Approbativeness
stands for a inordinate desire for honour and approval, for applause
and adulation, where the subject will always strive to be in the centre
of attention, with too great a sensitivity to blame or praise.
