Although I'm not averse to compliments from people, I rarely accept them uncritically. I process compliments in a way very similar to how I process criticism: I think about whether or not they make sense, and I consider the source (are they in a place to be qualified to say I have X quality?) I don't usually have positive reactions to compliments unless I've decided that the compliment seems coherent.
For instance: if someone who I thought was relatively stupid was complimenting me on my intelligence, it wouldn't mean anything to me, because I wouldn't consider that person to be in a place to have a grasp of what it means to be intelligent. On the flip side, if someone whom I thought was extremely intelligent complimented me on my intelligence, I would be much more strongly affected positively, though still not without thinking about it.
That being said, I am well aware of how much it offends people when I openly analyze and critque compliments like that. This process ONLY takes place inside of my head. On the outside, I'll just nod and say thanks.
Also, I think certain kinds of compliments don't make sense to analyze ("You're cute and cuddly"), though I will still feel the impulse to do so.
