  • I remember I had an argument with this eastern woman named "Samar" once. A beautiful woman. Long black curled bair and light brown, maybe hazel eyes.. anyway she told me her argument, then I told her mine. I was really confident of my argument being correct and she noticed that. She said "my aren't we confident today?" To which I replied "i'm confident everyday." My argument was incorrect but I still had the confidence to share it with others. Plus the woman never found out I was incorrect, so I guess you could say I was correct after all.

  • Somewhere in the middle. The third last option. When I'm with new people I'm a bit on the quiet side and might sound insecure, but when I'm with my friends, I'm one of those loudmouths

  • I think A fits me very well. I act confident - sometimes to the point of me not actually knowing whether I'm acting or not. But I'm a sad insecure fuck.

  • I voted C. I'm a VERY confident person, and I absolutely refuse to water down my confident vibes because others are insecure or intimidated.

    Better to be considered over-confident and arrogant, than to be considered insecure and weak. Especially as a man.

  • I tend to act more confident than I really am. Throughout my teen years and into early adulthood I was plagued by depression and absolutely crap self-esteem. I have found, through my years, that portraying confidence breeds confidence. Also focusing on things I liked about myself as opposed to the things I hate. The portraying confidence is because people will react positively to it, and that helps with the self-esteem, which helps with the actual confidence.
