    Default You are what you eat?

    It has been no doubt through out time that people have associated wisdom as containing a balance of humility and confidence. Yet each trait if used incorrectly can grab the perception of complete stupidity.

    So here is my question. Humility vs confidence. What is the strength and weakness of each and how are they best utilized. Can we apply them to function, He Hi Ce Ci. What is the prefferential combination? In your opinion.

    Du bist was du isst. Wait, the title isn't relevant.. dangg.....

    Okay Humility vs. Confidence.

    Internal Confidence with External Humility is the best imo.

    The title is in reference to outer perceptions contributing to the self. If I express humility but am extremely confident on the inside how does it cycle and so forth.......... I know I'm a hungry nerd. Not even I bought that.

    What sort of reaction does external humility conrtibute to?

    Oh, well I was expecting a thread that was literally about food lol

    Humility and Confidence aren't opposites in my opinion so I don't see how they would conflict with each other. Humility vs. Ambition is a different story.

    Ooh, an easy one.

    The more of each, the better. They're far from mutually exclusive--they're complementary.

    Confidence is often associated with arrogance, and that is why confidence seems at odds with humility. To be confident in your abilities without letting it go to your head is ideal.

    It should actually be Humility vs. Ego. I like the idea. But it is not a personality trait. Too much humility makes you a doormat; too much ego and you are trouble. Ego is a natural defense mechanism. When you are in survival mode, your ego protects you. Humility is a social mechanism that allows people to cooperate.

    It does take a degree of self awareness, but I'd say if you think you're competencies in a few areas somehow make you a better person in general (or an expert in general, or whatever) then it has gone to your head.
