    He never pushes himself forward.

    Hi,

    What does this sentence mean?

    He never pushes himself forward.

    Without further context, what does it possibly mean?

    Thanks a lot

    Here are a few possibilities:
    He never volunteers for anything.
    He never draws attention to himself.
    He never tries to take advantage of situations.
    He never forces his way to the front of the queue.
    He never exerts himself.
    He never tries to make the best possible way through life.
