Looking for an adjective or noun to describe people being over cautious to be polite or considerate to others, and often expecting or causing others to respond or act in a similar way.
- Holding door for people behind while the other is still meters away.
- While walking on the road, constantly check behind and pose to give way to others while people behind have no intention to overtake but stressed to do so due to the pose.
Normally these people see themselves very positively. They believe they are behaving at a higher social moral standard than others, and expect others to behave accordingly too.
The word I'm looking for should be:
- Negative, as the behavior is not very pleasing.
- Reveal the undesired expectation imposed on others to behave equally polite, considerate or even "elegant".
