Generally speaking, why do people have a need to show off to others? For example, they buy super expensive material items on credit that they cannot actually afford. As you know, every person is different. However, what are possible explanations for their behavior?

Generally speaking, people buy things to make themselves feel better. They often buy things to boost their self-esteem.
