        1. Ah. Well, one may not equal the other, but what would you say is the difference? One could say it’s in how it affects people. Arrogance expects things from those around; confidence is a promise of something from yourself. Arrogance entails a certain sense of entitlement, while confidence is something earned. I haven’t earned it. Thus, what else could it be but arrogance?

          1. I don’t agree with the fact that confidence is earned. You’re responsible for building and maintaining it.

            What’s the difference? Arrogance is a rude version of confidence. When you’re not being a donkey, then you’re confident.

            1. But you can’t build something from nothing. The materials for building confidence must come from somewhere, and for most people, that somewhere is experiences. Thus, in a sense, it’s earned. By living. By knowing what you’re capable of. Or even just by having faith.

              As for the difference… Rude can be a matter of perception. What’s a grievous offense to one person might seem a mere necessity to another.
