Why Confidence Does Not Equal Cockiness

Podcast Episode

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Whitney and Stephanie tackle the assumption that confidence is a negative thing, why it’s a form of conditioning, and how people often find themselves in a cycle of feeling bad about being confident. (1:18)
  • When people envision confidence it encompasses a spectrum where on one side people see confidence, in the middle they see cockiness and at the end they see narcissism. But is this spectrum true? (3:07)
  • Myth #1, confidence is cockiness. This is absolutely false, yet there is a lot of misuse and misinformation about the idea of cockiness and narcissism (4:51)
  • Myth #2, being confident can turn you into a narcissist. Can you be too confident? (7:48)
