Cunning and clever. The Scots respect cleverness and like to feel that they possess plenty of it themselves. In Scotland there is nothing wrong with being clever, so long as you show it by words or actions, rather than by bragging. You don't have to hide it. To say of someone that "he has a good conceit of himself" is neither praise nor blame, just a statement of fact. (pb)
