When you say "how are you?" to your Chinese friends, they may not respond by saying "Wǒ hěn hǎo." or "I’m fine." That's not wrong, but just not so authentic. You might hear them saying "I am doing OK" or "I am just so so." Why? Because Chinese people usually tend to be modest, and keep a low profile, even if they are doing super great.
