On Confidence as Strength


In order for confidence to be a strength, one has to be accurate about what one is confident.

A “C” student being confident about being a “C” student is better than a “B” student thinking s/he was an “A” student. Because the latter is a delusion, not a strength. (See previous post on Dunning-Kruger effect)
