Sir I think 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 called over confidence.

Confidence is true trust on your self that you can do it. While over confidence is trust on yourself beyond your ability and capability. i.e you shall do it In every condition.

Basically I don't pay attention to the terms confidence and over confidence, but will do any kind of work with concentration. Those two are the terms associated with those who worry about the results all the time, but if we do a thing with concentration, good results automatically gets delivered.

Confidence is based on Facts and Figures but over confidence is based on speculation.

First, we analyze that work, then decided we can do that work this is confidence.

Without analyzing that work then decided we can do that work this is overconfidence. There is a small difference between confidence and overconfidence. Confidence means I can do that over confidence means Only I can do that.

This small difference leads to change one's life totally. In life we put confidence towards you, then you can achieve anything, with over confidence one can achieve nothing.

Let me quote an example:

Suppose I wrote exam very well. If someone asks me how the exam was then if I say I will get 90% for sure. Its confidence because you know how you wrote.

But if I say I get top in the class or college. Then its over confidence because I don't know how the rest of the college wrote the exam. May be some one in the class is better student than me.

So, knowing your abilities is confidence and thinking that you are the only capable person is over confidence (without knowing the others potential, never underestimate anyone).

Confidence is when you trust yourself and believe you can do something without anyone frightening you or changing your mind.

Over-confidence is when you become sure of yourself and don't let other's have the chance to tell you their opinion of something and won't accept advise from anyone.

If some one is confident means he is a having very positive attitude, and thinking towards the job. He is a self motivated and a hard and smart worker, who having a ability to get success.

And over confident makes a person irresponsible, un-punctual, lazy, last but not the least very very egoistic and selfish, they never feels respect for others work and achievement.

Confidence and over confidence is based upon thinking.

Confidence is the true trust of your inner where you "Yourself know you can do it".

While over confidence brings you to say anything that is out on the topic while you are smiling during the interview. It is like you are answering then you don't even know what it means.

In my point of view, confidence is having full faith on yourself i.e. you are sure that the work you have done is just perfect in your own view and can compete with others while on the other hand over confidence is something that you are blind that no one is better than you in that work which often lead us to trouble.
