Difference is just that "over". When there is no ego for achieving and thinking I will and I can do that then it is confidence otherwise over confidence.

Sir.

Confidence is when you have a goal. You work hard for that and believe that. I can do it. But when you do nothing for your goal. And still, believe that. I can do it then this is celled over confidence.

Sir, Confidence is the good trait to have where a person is sure about his course of action or activity and it comes from past success and right decisions.

Overconfidence is excessive belief in their own abilities ignoring the fact that their decision can be wrong too.

Thank you, Sir.

Confidence is the trust of ourself to teach reach the destiny with an idea of present situation.

Overconfidence is not knowing the idea of present situation but still, think to reach the destination.

Overconfidence is nothing but drowns completely in ocean with knowing the skills to swim.

Confidence is to hold the breath according to situation and know to swim accordingly.

Confidence is the inner factor of every person which we don't show in front of the person and it reaches our perfect goal. For example, if I hard work then I will surely get the job. (with positive attitude and self-motivated).

On the other hand, overconfidence our external image which we easily realize that we have. Which is never reach our destiny. It spoiled our way of our life. For example, I know I have got the job for sure. No one can with me (without any hard work).

Shruthi Swarup said: (Feb 28, 2017)  
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.

What to say in such situations? Maybe you can say "Because I'm special! You will find it during my work and never regret your choice.

Shahith said: A person is confident when he know the fact better, a person is overconfident when he think that he know the facts better than others.

Sir/Madam, There is a thin line between confidence and overconfidence. A confident person will always say.

That he can do it. But an overconfident person will say that He Can only do it. A confident person shows humbleness but overconfidence shows arrogance.
