Confident Character Trait

The confident character trait allows someone to feel or understand their own powers and believe in their ability to do something well, even if others believe they cannot. The confident person does not need validation to feel capable. Often times, when someone has a dominant confident character trait, that person will try to accomplish something solely because other people have told them they cannot do it. If the confident character trait is steering things, it will often prompt someone to say, "Challenge accepted."

The confident character trait wants to feed itself by pushing a person to test their limits. By trying new things and succeeding at a level one finds acceptable, one's confidence increases. The confident person understands by pushing themselves to overcome new challenges, they learn new skills through their experience, and become more capable of overcoming future challenges.

The confident character trait offers four important benefits:

1) Prompts willingness to step up and try something.
2) Helps to accept and manage one's failure.
3) Being confident can reduce anxiety, worry and concern.
4) Building one's confidence provides a clearer picture of one's authentic self.

    If someone tells you they do not believe you can do something, but you believe you can, accept the challenge. But, only to show yourself what you can do, come what may. The one who challenged you was merely a messenger to push your limits.

    When given the opportunity to present or offer an opinion in a group setting, only provide what you are confident in sharing. Nobody has all the answers, and that includes you, so do not attempt to give an answer you're not confident in.

    If you're confident in what you believe, and your partner is confident in what they believe, is it acceptable to believe different things? Part of being confident is knowing yourself well enough to accept others may see things differently.
