In an Asian society, we're conditioned to downplay things. Like compliments! Admit it, the first thing you say when somebody says, "You're looking especially nice today" is "Noo, it's a bad day today/Who are you looking at?/Are you blind?"
Part of being a confident, well-put-together woman is learning how to take compliments graciously though. It's considered poor form to reject a compliment in order to get more ("oh this old thing", "no, really, it looks great on you!") and even worse form to think the other person is stupid for offering said compliment. It's not about being arrogant and thinking that you're hot stuff, it's all in how you take the compliment.
- Say thank you. Even if you don't share their sentiment, thank them for thinking so.
- Return one of your own. Sharing is caring.
- If you're really uncomfortable- change the subject. Make sure that you've acknowledged the compliment first though!
- Share the love. If there were other team members involved, give them credit as well!
- Remember to smile. It sounds dumb but if you look down, frown, fidget when getting a compliment, all that's going to happen is that the complimenter will feel awkward for "misjudging" the situation.
