There is a thin line between Confidence and Arrogance. Amirite ?

No, I have to disagree! I feel quite confident but not the least bit arrogant. There is a big difference for me. I could never be arrogant! An **** maybe but not arrogant.

That's why I'd rather be humble than arrogant, I cant stand people like that even if the arrogance is due to them being good in their field

MG14 I think said it best. Its about being proud of what you achieved without thinking you are better than anyone else. I have more self-confidence today than I ever have but I know I have room to grow and I ain't better than anyone else I am just happy with who I am and who I have become.

That is correct, there is a big difference between contempt (or pity) toward others, and being glad about one's achievements is quite natural.

They say that respecting oneself should go along with respecting others.

I think I disagree.

If I am confident, I have self-assurance arising from my own abilities.

If I am arrogant, I have an exaggerated sense of my own importance or abilities.

I do agree that someone could be both - but they're not all that similar.

In my humble opinion, confidence is the way you feel about yourself, and arrogance is the way you feel about other people. It might be hard to describe, but you definately know it when you see it. :)

Self confidence should never sound arrogant.

Truly arrogant people are just plain delusional and have little consideration for others.
