"Full of oneself" nghĩa là gì?

'Full of oneself' có nghĩa là tự phụ, kiêu ngạo.

Ví dụ
It can’t be denied (không ai có thể chối cãi rằng) that Donald Trump is extremely successful in the business world (thương trường). Through his many investments and ownership of luxurious properties (bất động sản đắt tiền), he earns about $60 million a year. And he’s worth about $2.9 billion. Still his critics think he’s incredibly full of himself (hết sức kiêu ngạo). Maybe he wouldn’t be so well-known if he weren’t conceited (tự cao tự đại)!?

Amanda and I almost didn’t go on a first date (gặp nhau lần đầu). That’s because my ex-girlfriend lied (nói dối) about me to her and said that I was full of myself. Luckily, Amanda didn’t listen to her. After meeting me, Amanda decided that I was actually not sel-important (tự cho mình là quan trọng) at all. So she got to know me, we started going out and now we are thinking of getting married.
