    Confidence is knowing

    that you can do something without trying to top everyone else whereas arrogance, you try to top everyone else and prove that you're better than them.

    A lot of people think I'm arrogant

    because I'm quiet, brutally honest, and a bit narcissistic, but truthfully I know my strengths and my weaknesses. Sometimes I verbalize incorrectly but I'm confident in myself, flaws and all.

    Confidence And Arrogance, Ignorance And Stupidity

    In my opinion, confidence is being sure of yourself while being willing to change and learn when you are wrong. Arrogance is being sure of yourself and refusing to change or learn when you are wrong.Just as ignorance is the lack of knowledge while stupidity is the refusal to gain...

    I am always confident

    but I can be arrogant but not to other people. I don't want them to feel discouraged. Thor would remind himself of his extreme might as motivation and I follow the path of the Thunder God.

    I wish everyone did. Confidence is a huge turn

    on. Someone that knows their capabilities and carries themselves in a positive, self assured manner is so much more attractive than the over-bearing, cavalier people who don't truly possess confidence, just the extreme behavior, attempting to pass their arrogance off as...

    Arrogance is when you tell someone how they

    should do something bold that you've never attempted yourself. Confidence is when you go out and do something bold and don't make a big deal about it. Even better, when the arrogant people call you later for advice on how to do it, you choose not to remind them that they used...

    I believe... Confidence is not bravado,

    or swagger, or an overt pretense of bravery or strength. It isn't a bold or brash air of self-belief directed at others. Confidence is quiet: It’s a 'natural expression' of ability and self-regard. It doesn't have to announce or prove itself. Nor does it have to vy for...

    In A Nutshell...

    Confidence: Thinking you can do it right. Arrogance: Thinking ONLY you can do it right.

    There is a difference.

    .. While some seem to have a sincere smile from the start, others show it with actions. Yet, when some can't combine the two you just wonder.... "Is this person just doing this to get something in return?" It seems some people are never expecting something (not conditional) in...

    Being a child at heart is where is where pick fun at people, in a playful way. Being immature is when you are doing a bad habit that you are too old for, and you need to stop.
