2 Thoughts on “Self Confidence Quiz

    Either person could be more self-confident. Self-confidence doesn’t have to do with your skills, accomplishments, education, etc. so much as it has to do with the way you think about yourself and those skills. I think you could be in a scenario where you personally are less qualified than another competitor, you are aware of that deficiency, yet you are still confident in the abilities that you DO have.

    It seems like the point of this quiz is to get us to think differently about self-confidence, that it’s not so much about skills, as it is about mindset. I think the fact that you’ve given us an option between two equally qualified people lends credence to that idea. 🙂

      I completely agree. Self confidence comes from within. Actually I have seen people with less skills but more confidence succeed much more than those with more skills but lacks confidence.
