Boasting is a form of interpersonal communication, the act of making an ostentatious and exaggerated speech.[1] It is considered a vice by such major religious groups as Christianity,[2] Islam,[3] Hinduism,[4] and Buddhism.[5]

Boasting has also been studied by such evolutionary psychologists as Robert Wright[6], and can involve magnifying an accomplishment out of proportion to its importance.[7]
