Confidence is something that will help you to achieve something. Confidence is I can do this task.

But over confidence is I'm the one who will do this task.

Over confidence may lead to decrease your performance. Dreams will be only dreams. It won't come true.

With example I am explaining this.

Suppose we are working with a team, so According to me,

Confidence is yeah surely we can do this (speaking positively & calmly).


Overconfidence is only we can do this no other people can (speaking loudly i.e. in different tone or we can say rudely also).

This emotion given in brackets also matters while answering.

For an example, A student is preparing for his exams from the beginning. He says that 'he surely score good marks in his examination' is Confidence. But if another student is preparing at last minute says that "he too scores good marks" is Over confidence.

Confident people will be bold enough to do anything and even they encourage others.

Overconfident will also be bold but they feel that they are superior to others and they will discourage others.

Confidence - I can do this work. With regular working.

Over confidence- I can surely do this work. With no practice.

For example, confidence = I will be hired as employee in your reputed company as fresher.

Over confidence = I'll be hired as HR as fresher in your organisation.
