What is the difference between confidence and over confidence?
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.

What do you think ?

Thanks for providing such a great information. Confidence is the positive way of thinking and answer the question correctly with full confidence.
Where as overconfidence is the wrong way of thinking in which person give the answers expecting that he is always correct but he was wrong at that time.

Confidence: Expecting right results for any work with knowing our strengths and weaknesses and according to our capacity.

Overconfidence: Expecting the best, no need for knowing our strengths and weaknesses and also capacity because we are always best.

Confidence means is the one which each and every person should have in himself like speaking without fear in an interview be confident in what ever you do.


Over confidence means showing that you know more than others and always trying to prove your superior and over means showing too much confidence than required.
