abstract concepts: my definitions of confidence and conceit


icon: "writing (a relief carving of Seshat, overlaid with my fractal "Colorflight")"


confidence:
Trusting oneself and being aware of one's own skills, while being able to easily handle being wrong. Not needing external validation nor the status of being right.

conceit:
Lack of willingness to look at one's own undeveloped spots, assuming that one's own ideas & perceptions are the best without ever testing them.

I just want to say thank you for your personal definition posts.

They give me a lot to think about and illuminate things I often knew already, but couldn't find the words for.

Yes! Knowing what you know (and what you don't know) is so important.

I like your definition of confidence.

The definition of conceit perfectly fits one of my coworkers.

The definition of confidence is a reminder for what I strive for in my career.

Enjoying your definitions. Wish you could have shared these with Socrates.
on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
