BJJ and Psychology: The Relational Humility Scale

Researchers in the psychological community have come up with a relational humility scale– from what I understand, basically a way to quantify the level of humility a person possesses. Which does sound odd at first, but becomes more interesting the more you think about it. Humility is sort of like that one quote from Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, you just know it when you see it, and its varying degrees.

I would be interested to see this scale applied to the BJJ community, and what sort of results they would find: humility in relation to success in competition, longevity in the sport, at what rank do students possess the most humility, the least, etc.

What do you guys think? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
