Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The socio-psychological concept of self-confidence relates to self-assuredness in one's personal judgment, ability, power, etc., sometimes manifested excessively.[1]

Compare:

  • confidence (often equivalent to self-confidence)
  • hubris (excessive self-confidence)
  • self-esteem (conceit, or favourable opinion of oneself, or self-acceptance).

Lack of self-confidence is called timidness or timidity. Being afraid of failure is a sign of this.
