Both of them is somewhat a competition and conflict with your inner one. If there is a competition between your and yourself and have faith that you are going to be the winner its confidence.

But if there is competition between you and others and you blindly believe you are better than anyone without judging yourself. Its overconfidence.

Confidence for me means to believe in me and my hard work.

Overconfidence means believing only in me and without hard work everything is just impossible.

The only difference between confidence and overconfidence is hard work and dedication. If a person thinks that he/she can do the job and works hard for it then he/she is confident while if he/she just thinks that the job can done and doesn't put any effort whatsoever for the fulfillment of the task at hand then he/she is overconfident.

Increase our opportunities with confidence, and with overconfidence we loss the all opportunities.

Ex : I get the job from your company (confidence).

I only get the job from your company (overconfidence).

Confidence is a thing which give us an entrust about our ability to do a work and overconfidence is a thing which ruins our work and success. For Eg. Confidence says if you give a chance to me I can make it a golden opportunity with my effort and overconfidence says I had only one who deserve this chance.

Confidence is a positive word and overconfidence is a negative word. So, confidence can help you and help you sail through any difficult situation but overconfidence can spoil everything!

Confidence is being comfortable in your own skin and expressing yourself without feeling insecure or nervous. It comes when one knows one's strengths as well as faults, and accepts them to improve oneself.

Overconfidence is when a person 'believes' that he/she is right every single time and that there's nothing the others 'need' do, but follow him/her happily.

If the interviewer says something like, "If you can do it, there are hundred others who can do it too. Why should we choose you and not them?".

If you say because I can do it better than others, the interviewer might twist your reply to mean that you are over-confident.

Confidence is belief. Overconfidence is superstition. Confidence makes you see clearly, overconfidence makes you blind. Confidence comes from knowing whereas overconfidence comes from fear. Confident creates, overconfident ruins the thing. Confidence gives strength within, overconfidence scatters the energies.

Confidence is believing that I have the ability to do a job well but over confidence is believing that apart from me, no one else can do this job. Therefore if I leave this company, the company will collapse or no one else should be given the job to do except me. Over confidence is all must always listen to me and me only and my ideas are the best and superior to all else.

Confidence can be defined as having a proper plan and determination and achieving a goal. Where as over confidence is having no perfect plan but assuming themselves to achieve their goals.

With the help of one's confidence a person can win their dreams step by step whereas with over confidence one surely falls down from the step where they are standing.

The difference between confidence and overconfidence is this, that when you are confident you can do something that was impossible and if you are over confident you can not even repeat the thing that someone has already done.

'' Of course, I can eat 2 bananas in a minute'' this is confidence.
'' Of course I can eat 10 bananas in a minute'' this is overconfidence.

Although if you want you can eat 10 in a minute all you want is will power.

Sir,

If any person shows his/her attitude and tells something on the basis of his/her ability and knowledge then this is called confidence.

If any person shows his/her attitude and tells something beyond of his/her ability and knowledge then this is called over confidence.

We can differentiate confidence and overconfidence by a single word "only".

For example "I can crack this interview" is confidence whereas "I can only crack this interview" is over confidence.

CONFIDENCE is trusting your strengths and talents, to some extent, in order to complete the job successfully, whereas OVER CONFIDENCE arises whenever you step ahead without having any pre-knowledge of it, which ultimately gives a negative outcome. So we must be CONFIDENT but not OVERCONFIDENT.

In my opinion confidence comes with good performance and success while over confidence comes when there is too much talk about the success and if the person is not experienced he may get carried away with these talks and become over confident, which degrades his performance. A experienced & confident person knows that how to handle success and after each success he sets a new target for himself and works hard to achieve that target while an over confident person only talks about his past successes and thinks that "since I had performed better in the past hence its obvious that I will perform best in the future".

Confidence is the positive force that pushes you forward in achieving something. It makes you believe that you can achieve something provided you put in the required effort.

Overconfidence is the negative force that makes you feel superior and prevents you from putting in the effort that is required to achieve something.

When you have capability, skill and attitude; you are confident.

On the other hand, when you do not posses skills and capability but still have an attitude. Its over- confidence.

Sir,

According to me the difference between confidence and overconfidence is,

Confidence is that sharing of knowledge.

Overconfidence is not sharing the knowledge.

Let me explain it with an example.

CONFIDENCE:

During exam time if you are going to explain/teach/understand the topics which you know to your friends similarly they also do the same you will be getting a confidence in the subject and you will be perfect in the subject. "SHARING OF YOUR THOUGHTS WITH OTHERS INCREASES YOUR CONFIDENCE".

OVER CONFIDENCE:

Even you know everything and you had studied everything but lack of sharing your thoughts it leads to imperfection. Then you are going to have a feeling like "I AM THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAD STUDIED EVERYTHING".

Confidence: Means 100 percent of faith and one of the quality. There is no fear, it achieved by only through gain of enlightenment power, (like buddhudu, vivekananda, other monks). It's being different levels within all creature in the universe.

Overconfidence: Person feels 100 percent confidence. It is only false view of human beings.
