Do you notice when someone is confident or not?

People can fake confidence by talking loud, pretending they know it all throwing around some fancy words while making no sense. If they are calm and composed when their knowledge or work is challenged, take others opinions into consideration, you can call them genuinely confident. Being bitter, throwing tantrums and insulting people aren’t the signs of confidence. Those are signs of insecurity.

[@1196310,Mellowgirl] Sure
Performance confidence: It's generated and maintained by your skills and experience. You know what you know and you know what you don't know. You don't BS people. Those are the genuine ones. There are some exception to this. Some people have a very over-exaggerated estimate of their performance. Dunning-Kruger effect.

Personality confidence: People who are self-aware and even if they lack the aptitude, they have the attitude to get things done. If they can't do something by themselves, they will get it done by seeking help. They are usually smooth talkers. Exception to this: The master manipulator kind, narcissists, who think they are better than others. They don't care about anything as long as their goals are met.

Sometimes. Confident people don't have to act confident. I'm almost always aware when someone is pretending to be confident and I keep a careful distance.
