    I wouldn't say that Dumbledore was humble. Not arrogant but he knows he's a genius and he is not ashamed to say it.
    Well, actually, there are plenty of examples in the books, where Dumbledore is excessively humble.

    Also the word huggle is used. I thought it was a Mugglenet thing - I was wrong.
    I know! When I read that, um, toned down version of the tales written by Mrs Bloxam, and saw the word "huggled" being used, I immediately thought of the Hugglepuffs....

    Not really. He's excessively polite, but his "humility" is really more of a very dry sense of humor. He doesn't go around saying, "I am the greatest wizard in Britain," but he certainly is aware of the fact that he is. It's only the fact that he's also aware of his flaws that keeps him from bragging.
