    From my experience, Jeff Buttle is the most non-egotistical man in his outward persona I have encountered who also finished on top at a worlds.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Kozuka and Hanyu! Both so sweet and seem so softspoken, respectful, not stuck up at all.

    Also, Fernandez has a lot of confidence, but he's never come off as entitled or egotistical IMO. He seems like a genuinely nice, sunny person.

    Josh Farris is just starting to make a name for himself but in the interviews and press conferences at Nationals, he seemed shy and actually pretty dorky (still love your skating Josh!) but yeah, no big ego there either.

    im pretty sure the reason why scott comes off as egotistical is because he has to be confident for both himself and for tessa (because she isnt) and i think that shows how much he respects her. that odd look he gave at the 4cc kiss and cry was probably because he believed that tessa risked her health for their fd and that tessa isnt getting enough credit for what she is doing. scott knows his position in his partnership with tessa and he knows he is nothing without her. he even admitted that he's shit compared to tessa. IIRC egotistical can be defined as someone who thinks they are better than everyone and scott doesnt fit the bill because he cares about and respects tessa too much. im sorry but an egotiscial person would never care so much for someone more than they care about themselves. if scott was the egotistical dbag y'all make him out to be he would've left tessa back in 2009.

    I think PChiddy is a pretty humble, but very impressive young man. I think he's taken a lot of bad press for the judges over whom he has no control, and handles himself well.

    Of skaters we haven't met, but of whom we have good impressions of in terms of humility - Taka K., Javier, Daisuke, Midori ...

    I might have put Chan in the "big ego" group.

    Definitely Moir. Trash-talking about other skaters is the biggest clue to an over-active ego, in my opinion.

    Javer Fernandez, Ondrej Hotarek, Luca Lanotte, Tomas Verner, Jeremy Abbott, Michal Brezina, etc etc

    He is not humble at all, you must be kidding. He is the total oppsoite of that.

    The ones that come to my mind are Jeff Buttle, Stephane Lambiel, and Daisuke Takahashi. Todd Eldridge too.

    really i wouldn't call someone who laughs at themselves when they say stupid shit egotistical. last time i checked someone who was egotistical wasnt self aware of their faults

    Urmanov. Sportscasters were always describing him as a "nice young man" on American tv. ...in the days when they broadcast Skate America, the Goodwill Games et al.

    So, he cares for Tessa. That doesn't change the thing he's an arrogant douchebag with a gigantic ego. He's proven that many times. And even if he doesn't think he's better than Tessa, he sure as hell thinks he's better than everyone else.
