Wikipedia has an article about

To be humble is to take specific actions in anticipation of your own errors. To confess your fallibility and then do nothing about it is not humble; it is boasting of your modesty.

Not to be confused with social modesty, or motivated skepticism (aka disconfirmation bias).
