Why do so many men have so much confidence

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

this.

Although once in a while i have been known to experience short episodes of it. Usually because i achieved something of some value.


To be fair the world is populated with successful people who only became successful because they had massive amounts of confidence even though they had no reason to have it. So while it sucks to be around overly confident people, it can get them places. Although it is especially terrible yeah to be around someone who has loads of it and who you KNOW is NEVER going places and generally sucks.


Still the most worthwhile thing you can teach your child is to be overly confident.

And i would add, falsely modest. They won't REALLY be modest but if they can have loads of confidence and SEEM like they're modest, it's a really winning combo.

I think in public I project way more confidence than I actually have because people tell me sometimes that I seem like a confident person. I constantly second guess myself and internally I'm quite anxious. Especially when things are going really well, I feel on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Two nights ago I was awake at 2am googling "late onset mental illness".

Not confidence but it took me a long time in life to learn that a lot of people's perception of me was that i was snobbish or too cool for them because im not overly expressive.. I have (always never) felt too cool for anybody in my life. It's usually quite the opposite. my point i guess is your perception of yourself and what you actually project can be quite different.

The most worthwhile thing to teach your kid is to use sorcery to control the weather, or else real-estate law.

You know how you get the robots stuck guarding each other to get the doll in Geno Dome? That's why we always have to make sure we have at least one white dude from our team in contentious meetings.
Usually me.

even quiet confidence bothers me

when and where is it appropriate to use a confident demeanor as opposed to a neutral demeanor?
