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.

Here is an only small difference, if I say am suitable for this job it's my confidence but if I say am the only one suitable for this job it's my over-confidence.

That means, confidence is good understanding about our strength and over-confidence is like one underestimating other people.

Confidence is when you do anything with what you know and you are sure about that it can be happen for the best and if not you can give try until it shows you a best result, and.

Overconfident is when you do anything with thinking that you only know that thing.

Indrajeet H Mazumder said: (Sep 11, 2020)  
There's a very thin line of difference in between confidence and overconfidence. Well, I can explain to you the whole fact with a simple example.

Right before coming to this interview, I was thinking that hopefully, I'll be impressive enough to the HR, through my answers while the Q&A session and I'll surely be capable enough to fulfil the criteria of this job role. So this is called confidence, which is quite good but you know what over-confidence is, if I think that all the other candidates, sitting outside the room will not be able to fulfil the criteria of this job role and will none of em' be selected for the next round. Whereas confidence rejuvenates your soul, recharge your mind and body, over-confidence is a very toxic material by itself. So, we should through overconfidence out of the window but must keep confidence within our heart. Thanks.

Vishwash Khandal said: (Aug 1, 2020)  
A confident person is knowledgeable, has a deep understanding, has sharpened his/her skill sets by repeated practice, and is constantly willing to learn. A confident person is also humble, can acknowledge his/her mistakes, and makes it a point to rectify their mistakes and faults. These qualities build trust and make him/her success in life.

Whereas, An overconfident person, on the other hand, is blind to his/her mistakes and faults. He/she cannot accept their shortcomings and assume that they know the best. Hence they stop learning and slowly but surely stop being successful in their chosen path.

"I am right" expresses confidence while "I can't be wrong" expresses overconfidence.

Confidence comes from believing that you are doing your best while overconfidence comes from believing that you are the best.

There is a very thin layer between confidence and over confidence. If one thinks that he can do the task and has the ability, it is confidence. But if one thinks that I will be able to do it nothing can stop me and I am the only best that is over confidence.

One should have confidence and not over confidence as it ruins our personality and our relations with our colleagues. Confidence gives us a positive attitude and approach in life which is very important.

Confidence is like strength and it will definitely help us to achieve anything in our life.

But overconfidence is completely opposite because without hardworking and effort a person can't get success in life.

So, when we get clarity about our hard work then only confidence and overconfidence should work in balance.

Confidence is based on focus and knowledge but overconfidence is based on speculation. There is a small difference between confidence and overconfidence. Yes, I can do this work is a self- confidence but only I can do this work is a overconfidence.

I think confidence is human feelings which comes after the internal hardworking about anything which give us strength and motivate us to go toward right path of life.

Overconfidence make us lazy, careless because it only shows us winning trophy not the hardwork required for it. We are alredy sure about winning without doing efforts for it which eventually make us fall from mountain.

Sir, according to me, confidence is an inner feeling which always speaks to us that "you can do it ". But overconfidence always says that "you only can do it. " And due to this ego will increase in Hart and will spoil our life.

Sir according to my views, confidence is best way to check our potential and overconfidence is the worst way. By overconfidence we can lose everything in our life but with confidence we can achieve everything.

There is a thin line between confidence and overconfidence. When you think that you have such potential to do that work, that's your confidence.

And if you think that You are the only one who can do that work easily and nobody can do that as you can, then that's your overconfidence.

So, confidence is good but overconfidence is not good. Overconfidence just messed your work.
