Humble : having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's importance.

My question is : can a person be humble in some situations? It has a positive connotation in general. But can it mean that a person underestimates his talents and importance?

I came across the sentence :

I felt very humble when meeting her.

What does it mean exactly in this situation? He was a bit nervous, etc.? Can a person be humble (a bit shy) in some situations or it’s more about a personality trait?

Thank you!
