because it makes them feel important when u ask, which leads to them wanting to lower u even more to boost their feeling of importance.
exactly!!! i swear..i thought i was the only one who felt this way!!
lol well youre not
omg!! i have had this happen to me so many times! people are so closed-minded that they think that if you merely ask if you appear confident, you aren't confident. it makes me think that they don't understand me at all! i love myself so much that it borders on narcissism at times.....so annoying.
You do rock.
I think we are all curious as to how people perceive us. It's a fair question.
I'm quite confident but still get a little nervous before a job interview (well I used to when I still worked for other people). I found it helpful to go over things you would probably be saying in the interview with someone else beforehand. Interviews are like anything else, you get better at them with practice so it's worth practicing before heading into one. I'd prefer to do that with someone in the real world though than in a site like this.
