Would You Rather Be Proud Than Humble And Vain Than Modest?

Would you rather be proud than humble and vain than modest? Please explain your answer.

Of course, we'd always should be humble----in everything we do and have. But confidence can be mistaken as pride sometimes, and also "not" everything personal conveys pride. There are certain situations such as job interview or competitions that we need to display confidence --that we are sure of what we are doing and that we believe in our God-given abilities. Also, talking about oneself or doing something for ourselves do not mean pride or arrogance ---we should not judge if pride is not in context---meaning, if somebody is doing something for himself or talking about himself---it's definitely because "he is able to , he needs to, and he is privileged to do it."
God is against pride----when we BOAST about ourselves instead of acknowledging Him for HIs gifts and providence, and glory. That's the pride God is talking about.
