My answer to Why do some people hate praise?
Answer by Desmond Last:
As somebody who does not like or expect Praise I can say it is because I do the best I can in the most Professional manner possible and do not want to be given praise for what is my duty.
However, I do expect a polite Thank-you which is not Praise but an appreciation of effort.
Praise is for Politicians and our World Leaders who are the most self-congratulating group of People in the World even when they are allowing children to die in Yemen or any other war zone or from absolute starvation.
Of course the ‘Kings Of self-Praise’ would have to be those who believe leaving an economic union worth billions is a good thing.
