If some one is confident in themselves should they show it. I think If your confident you should walk tall, look people in the eye. Dress for success, Be proud of your self. Among other things. [b]Do you think that this is arrogant? Or do you think it is being confident in your self? You Decide !!![/b]

That is self confidence. Arrogance is believing others are beneath you. Walking positive makes us live positive.

Well, I don't think nobody is beneath me. I don't ever think I'm better than other people. I do act positive around other people. I think that rubs off on the people that I'm around sometimes.

I agree, you are not arrogant, and your confidence can rub off on others.

Confidence is the projection of a POSITIVE attitude. Arrogance is the projection of a NEGATIVE attitude. Think about men for a sec walk. You always know an arrogant man, not just by his body language, but the minute he opens his mouth and removes all doubt about what he thinks of himself - and others. He doesn't give you a warm fuzzy feeling. On the other hand a confident man will have a genuine smile that reaches his eyes, and you will get a warm fuzzy feeling even BEFORE he opens his mouth. Self confidence is not just a question of dress, walking tall, looking people in the eye, or other things. Self confidence projects warmth too.

I think it's confidence 100%. It's important to present yourself a certain way, especially in the business world. There is nothing wrong with confidence, nothing wrong with dressing for success, and nothing wrong with showing it. Now, if you are a jerk with it, that's where the arrogance comes in.

I agree. I think a woman should show her confidence and be strong. She should show her personality and who she is. We need to be our selves. And be confident.

As far as I am concerned there is a tremendous differnce between confidence and arrogance. Arrogance involves inflating yourself to the point of being demeaning to others yet confidence can be shown in a positive manner and to the benefit of others. Many people I associate with today and in the past deserve to be confident becasue they have success and are noted in their fields. I have yet to meet someone that had any justifiable reason to be arrogant!

[i]Hi walk, I don't find it arrogant! Those behavior shows that the person is very confident which is of course a very positive and great attitude! Arrogant for me is when the person will start boasting and admiring his own accomplishment,talking himself a lot to people, For me, if we have accomplished something, we don;t need to announce it to all of our friends and let's wait other people who will recognize it![/i]

There is nothing wrong at all with being confident and behaving like one as long as the personality projected is coupled with true capability and potentials. Of course, arrogance is never been good but the way we carry ourselves are sometimes misconrtued by others because you know, we have different perceptions for each one. It all depends on how others see us and might judge us one way or another.

I know what you mean. If you care about yourself, your gonna always have haters. There is nothing you can do about that. I have no ill will toward anyone. But it does bother me when a person can talk behind your back, then look at you like there your friend. when you know what they said. And all it is, is jealousy

I think confidence show through all those thngs you said. being arrogent is when you see the need to tell everyone about your acomplishments. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being proud and confident(in fact it actually draws people toward you), but being arrogent just puts people off. Cheers, Tianna

Hi friend, I think arrogance and confident is two different things. A person who is confident of himself is not nervous of the things he is going to do. Simply means he knows what he is doing. He is calm and relax like somebody who is giving speech with a big crowd, no stage freight. Really confident that he knows what to say. On the other hand, arrogant is something like Proud.,, here you can compare to overconfident. Boastful that's what I mean. Well, that is how I decide on your topic. Arrogant and confident are 2 different things.

They definitely should... Walk the talk... but don't talk the walk.. Lol. I'm pretty sure people can tell the difference between being confident and being arrogant. People who are confident exude a different aura and others are instantly drawn to them or have a lot of good things to say about people who carry themselves confidently. Now, a person who is arrogant is too confident or it may even be the other way around. They are arrogant because they want to cover up the insecurities that they have. You can tell arrogant people by the way they look at other people and definitely by the way they talk... Confidence is what a lot of successful people have.

That is a very good definition. I think you described it well. I think an arrogant person might look down on people, or be rude. Thanks for your time.

I don't think these things make you arrogant. It just means you believe in yourself and are self assured, and it shows you care about yourself enough to show it.

I think anyone can be confident in there self. You just have to believe in you and who you are. One of my male friends tells me I look in the mirror every morning and I tell myself, I LOVE YOU. Of coarse I don't, and that is just a big joke, for a number of reasons. But you do have to love yourself to have confidence in yourself. Don't let anyone tell you that your not good enough for anything. Your life is worthy, and as long as you believe that you can have confidence.

I think what you describe is a confident person. And there is definitely nothing wrong with that. It's when you walk around with an attitude like your sh!t don't stink is when you are arrogant.
• United States

Oh it does. And when I'm mean it stinks real bad. So I'd say I'm just confident. Thanks for your time Relundad. !

Yes, just as long as you don't make it a habit to show off in front of others. You can just feel good about yourself, without wanting to be in the spotlight, or just to be seen.. That is when it becomes being classified as being very arrogant..

Yes, your right. Thanks for the comment.
