Tall poppy syndrome
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tall Poppy Syndrome (TPS) is a pejorative term used in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand to describe what is seen as a leveling social attitude. Someone is said to be a target of tall poppy syndrome when his or her assumption of a higher economic, social, or political position is criticized as being presumptuous, attention seeking, or without merit. Alternatively, it is seen as a societal phenomenon in which people of genuine merit are criticized or resented because their talents or achievements elevate them above or distinguish them from their peers.

Just thought that I would introduce this term to those who are unaware…
