To my knowledge no one in this world knows everything, so confidence is the one I keep learning to know everything and over confidence is the one I know everything. These things will reflect the positive and negative side of a person.

According to me, confidence is a positive and encouraging side of one's mind and overconfidence is a negative side of one's mind. So, I think that confidence is more necessary than overconfidence.

Confidence is a positive side of any person on the other hand overconfidence is the negative side of a person. Confidence helps to learn anything easily but overconfidence doesn't give to learn anything.

Because an overconfident person thinks that he/she knows everything or without he/she anyone doesn't know that particular thing.

"I can do this work" - confidence.

"Only I can do this work" - overconfidence.

Confidence is more about respecting the potential of yourself while overconfidence is about disrespecting the potential of others.

Being confident helps you reach your goals while overconfidence takes you further away from your goals.

After taking some initiatives, realizing that the desired task is possible is confidence. Assuming that someone will help and makes our life better without even taking a risk is overconfidence. Though it works out for fewer people.

According to me, confidence is something with which you boldly or fearlessly face or tackle a situation.

And over-confidence is tackling a situation without proper knowledge about it.

Confidence tells our positive attitude and overconfidence tells that over attitude. Confidence in oneself is required to achieve something but overconfidence makes oneself into a different way of approach. Confidence is good for everything but with overconfidence, one can not reach heights.

The difference is only in the belief of a person, both come from hard work but being overconfident towards something needs more passion towards it than a person can think of. It's not bad you know being overconfident, it only depends on individual perception of things as I said earlier.

Everybody have their view of perception based on their experience in life, I want to share my viewpoint on this, be ready to face any kind of situation in unfaithful and having clear thoughts on goals to implement even over distracting from people.

Overconfidence is having less knowledge of situations, behave like immature in the right kind of situation.

Confidence is something when you do care about your result and puts 100% effort to make it best but in over confidence's case you don't care about the result although might be possible to not to put any effort because of over assurance to that matter. In other words, confidence is what when you make a rough path in a walkable path and in over-confidence, you make a rough path into a slippery (over smooth) path.

Confidence is a belief and the courage that it is possible, but with full knowledge and awareness of challenges/obstacles and errors that might make the road to success not very smooth.

Overconfidence is selfish thought that with me every road is smooth, anyone else can't go through in my absence.
