    I too am very self confident, and also very formal. Once I make a good first impression I open up a bit and all rolls forward from there.

    It seems you wish to know how to allow others to perceive you as self confident, but not appear cocky. This is actually a good question. All I can tell you is this.

    ---------------------------------------------------
    MOST people who have only known me for a few short time will tell you I am self confident, smart, funny, and nice.

    I think the differrence in being perceived one way or the other is in your overall demeanor with regard to politeness, willingness to help others, and respect for existing social/organizational norms of your surroundings. If in your initial interactions with people, or better yet if they observe you being a person of good intention and then meet you later, you most likely have a chance of being well received.

    If you end up being the looney genius in the kitchen on the second floor of your building who stumbles across a new hire in the midst of your daily fury then you might freak them out.

    Good luck! I wish you success in your socializing endeavors!

    I have concluded something quite similar. The only thing is that I have to find a way to improve my Fe.



    Btw this is a very old thread.

    Self confidence is only detrimental when you overestimate your abilities.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    When self-confidence grows to a point where it no longer accurately reflects their own abilities, it's too much. At that point, it's delusional.

    Lol...I've been making sure to keep my self-confidence in check lately because
    I know I've been in a few situations where I felt like my reputation was being
    played with or my needs weren't being met and I'm able to catch myself when
    I feel like my buttons are a tad pushed...I'm not a dummy and know some pe
    ople can use that to trip you up and make you out to be the bad guy.

    I am not oversteping my abilities.

    There's never enough self-confidence.
