What Guys Said 3

  • A person with a big ego thinks highly of himself and promotes himself to others. If he is not confident about something he will attempt to deflect attention to something else or assign the task to anyone else.

    A confident person believes he has the necessary skills for a particular situation. He may or may not outwardly express confidence.

    Ego and confidence are not interchangeable, although people with big egos usually exhibit confidence whether they have it or not in order to maintain the image they hold of themselves.
