There is just a minute difference between confidence and overconfidence.

If I tell I can mean that is my confidence. But if I tell I only can means that is my overconfidence.

Confidence deals with how you should approach a job or task with courage and make sure to complete the task with limited time. But overconfidence sometimes eradicates all the performance as well as job schedule which will give a great impact on your corresponding activities.

So, have proper patience and do not go beyond your confidence level.

The difference between confidence and overconfidence is that confidence means the belief in yourself through your hard work. But overconfidence means you are thinking that you are the only person capable to do that work.

Confidence is when we feel sure about our abilities and make the right decisions. It is the feeling when we have faith in ourselves. And on the other hand, over confidence is when we take our abilities in excessive way overlooking the fact that we can be wrong too. So Confidence gives us strength and over confidence weakens.

I want to explain with an example.

I will win means it's confidence.

Only I will win means it's overconfidence.

And also we can say that if you say confidently, you have some knowledge about that. But you have known nothing but you are saying confidence means we can say it as overconfidence.

Confidence is something that refrains us from not doing the required process to achieve the result.

However, overconfidence stops us from doing the required process even before achieving the result because we are too sure of our capabilities.

The difference between confidence and over-confidence is

For example, I am an employee in the company my boss assigned me work and said submit work on time. Then I can do this work and submit given time is confidence.

Only I can do this work and submit given time is overconfidence.

Confidence always gives a positive attitude, Positive thinking and overconfidence give over attitude and negative thinking.

"Only" word is the difference between conference and overconfidence.

According to me, There are three types of answers.


Confidence-I can do this work, this is my confidence.

Only I can do this work this is my overconfidence.


2 => I am going to give my best in the interview this is my confidence,

But the interviewer will definitely hire me this is my overconfidence.

3 => I am best for your company this is my confidence.

But I only the best for your company this is my overconfidence.

Thank you.

Sir, for me there is a fine difference between confidence and overconfidence as I face it practically in my life. Confidence is accompanied to the belief of an individual where the confidence shows a part of the persons ego and lack of self-evaluation.

As for showing the difference with the help of the statement.

"I am sure that I get this job" shows confidence".

"I am super sure that I get this job" shows some overconfidence.
