On Etiquettal Conundrums - Part 1

So one context for this question is farewells. And in that context, one application of this topic is preparing the guest list.

The question, the topic is this:
  • Is it better to underestimate how important you are to people or it is better to overestimate how important you are to people?

Which is more likely to hurt feelings? Which is more likely to tend to create ill will (however mild) or unfavorable last impressions?

Please discuss.

IT PUTS THE LOTION IN THE BASKET!!!

Just crap in a paper bag and lock it in a desk drawer, then pocket the key. That should do it.

It is best just actually be more important than those around you.

I know my advice is late, but I love (sarcasm intended) emails addressed to the "Attorney All" list from people I've never even heard of.

Or use bcc's.
