In your opinion where does it go from confidence to arrogance redux?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) January 3rd, 2017

I have no clean description that would not be leaning so you are left to what you believe personally. Though, there is no single area considered, but basic overall.

This question is so poorly worded that it makes no sense. What is “it”? The single answer thus far only confuses me further. Both the question and answer seem to be in some code worthy of explanation.

The original question, which I found to the right in the Fluther ‘related section, asked ‘When does confidence become arrogance.” link

^^ This question is so poorly worded that it makes no sense.
Then word it better if you know better, and while doing it you might manufacture an answer as to what you believe is the difference between arrogance or confidence ir when one crosses to the other, that is if you have an idea.

No need for me to word it better. “What is the difference between arrogance and confidence?” as expressed in your latest post does the trick, and does it admirably. Had that been the initial question, this thread would now be packed with a lengthy list of responses typical to your other questions.

Your suggestion that I concoct an answer is a challenge that I’m reluctant to accept. One of those words is a virtue, the other, a vice. Both are matters of judgement and therefore malleable in the extreme. Is Trump confident, arrogant or both? In October would it have been arrogant to predict Clinton the winner in November? Was Clinton confident or arrogant? Is there a difference between overconfidence and arrogance?

This is another of your questions that I would prefer to neglect, because the rabbit warren of discussion around 2 such flexibly interpreted words is hopelessly frustrating.

Depends on what one wants to see; not that there is any truth to it.

Is Trump confident, arrogant or both?
Perhaps both.
