    Living in the present can make one seem confident, but it's just living in the present. Little children sometimes have this trait too. I find that people become more cautious and scary-cat as they get older, not more brave and confident.

    There's also being comfortable in your own skin, which is not quite confidence, but works well for a person.

    Lol that's more like J types in that they set a standard for themselves and don't wanna push themselves to explore anything new.

    His/her statement was that he/she DOES have confidence in who they are and what they think. Not, "I think I have confidence."

    I've always sort of seen ESxP's as having "masculine" personalities. By masculine, I don't mean they are tom boyish in style or even hobbies. It's a boisterous-ness in their personality. An ESFP female I know said that her family always criticized her for wanting to sit and play cards with her uncles rather than cook in the kitchen with her aunts. They want to do what's fun, whether it's lady like or not. She was also often criticized by her family and many others in her life for being too outspoken. Also not considered lady like by traditional standards.

    I can recall another ESFP I know having a party where she rolled out in an armour of condoms. We were having an 'Anything but clothes' party. On another event, she literally rolled out in roller skates and a bathing suit. She had a very "I don't give a f***" attitude, which is more masculine than feminine.

    Best way to describe my confidence is that I frequently get told that I'm intelligent, creative and not afraid of things I probably should be, but when I try to do things like cooking or math, I end up looking like an imbecile when a child in the room can do a better job, and I'm prone to pulling off some things that have others saying wow, but turning around and screwing up the parts that are supposed to be so easy it's sad, when I have one of those days, I just remember how many people would sit there like sheish what an asshole when they were watching the classic cartoons and there was always that one character who just couldn't get ahead to remind myself no one's perfect. Things I do to boost my confidence are to try and learn a challenging subject to try to get my brain in gear and react quicker to solving real life problems when set backs arise, read dark books because they are a good reminder that even though some things suck, at least it's not as bad as some things, and try to spend time around people I have a few things in common with, but who aren't exactly like myself to try to think outside the box.
