  • Yes. Being confident is a plus with women. But overconfidence seems conceited and implausible. Some but not all people with those symptoms have an undiagnosed narcissistic personality disorder. Watch out

  • I cannot stand arrogance, point blank period. Plus I think it's funny (well, actually sad) when people act so arrogant but can't even back it up and don't realize they're not really as "hot" or whatever as they think they are

  • To me, confidence is knowing you are good enough, and finding contentment in that. Overconfidence is knowing you are good and feeling the need to puke self-praise down everyone's ears.

    Really, over-confident people only come off as jerks. Like, eat some humble pie and shut up, dammit.

  • If it's to the point where your looking down on other people then yes its unattractive but if you just mean in your self then I think thts hot, everyone especially women should love themselves & be able to express that fully w/out being labeled a bitch (males too w/out being seen as jerks, or assholes)

  • If it borders on cocky, yes it's unattractive. If they think they're perfect and can't do any wrong, yep, unattractive. But if it's just general confidence and not caring about what others think so much, it's very attractive.

  • Confidence is confidence anything more is called arrogance and it's a turn off. If you're good at something you don't need to boast about it, everyone knows it anyway.

  • Over confidence leads into arrogance. A very unattractive trait that has been fatal for some I've known.

  • Overconfidence is better than underconfidence, because it leads to better results. Also confidence is an attractive trait, whether it's justified or not.

  • I find it really attractive if a girl is confident. Knows what she wants and isn't ashamed of it.
    She likes you? She'll tell you, she wants to make out? She'll grab you and make out. Etc

  • Arrogance is not attractive. Makes me think I can't rely on you. But it's also super satisfying to turn arrogant people down.

  • Satirical overconfidence is rather charming, but an actual inflated ego, sense of entitlement, and inconsideration towards other people... pretty damn unattractive.

  • You can't be overly confident - you can only be arrogant or prideful which is not true confidence. I know two extremely confident guys who are also extremely humble, respectful and compassionate. True confidence involves knowing you don't measure up and need to improve - that is called dignity, integrity and confidence all in one.

  • If the person is genuinely nice then a bit of overconfidence won't make it a turn off, but I'll accept that he has his own down sides and this is one of them.

    But of the person is shitty and arrogant then no. It's a major turn off.
