Self Confidence

Introduction

Self-confidence is characterized by: assertiveness, optimism, eagerness, affection, pride, independence, trust, the ability to handle criticism, emotional maturity, and the ability to accurately assess our capabilities.

What is Self Confidence?

Self-confidence primarily refers to us having a positive and realistic perception of ourselves and our abilities. A lack of self-confidence, on the other hand, is characterized by: self- doubt, passivity, submissiveness, over-conformity, isolation, sensitivity to criticism, distrust, depression, and feelings of inferiority and being unloved.
