I think this is the correct time to recall the tortoise and rabbit story.

In that story, the rabbit has over confidence for that reason it loses the race.

But tortoise has confidence for that reason it won the race.

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.

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.

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.

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.
