    Default Trying to decipher the definition of confidence

    I'm reading 'the manual: what women want and how to give it to them' and the definition of confidence is explained:

    "The ability to appear certain by tolerating uncertainty."

    For the life of me I can't get my head around this explanation lol Google turned up fuck all, so I thought I'd ask it here.

    Cheers

    Confidence according to my definition: "Is a skill that can be learned by ether confronting: fears, uncomfortable situations and bad habits to gain life experience. Showing to others/him/her self that he/she has been is in the situation before and will have less trouble confronting the situation again with confidence/trust in the situation" - Gotcha

    Well my definition of Self Confidence is different (i think that you mean that)
    "The ability/skill to trust/believe in yourself when encountering a problem/challenge"- Gotcha
    "The act of taking the first step is what set apart the winners from the losers"
    - Bryan Tracy
    "Natural routines are the PUA's paint brushes"

    Basically, if you're confident, you live in your own world by your own rules. Unaffected by outside actions.

    Cool, thanks guys.

    I think I have a pretty good understanding of what confidence is but it's more so the 'by tolerating uncertainty' bit that's throwing me off!

    Well, it means that you shouldn't worry about what's beyond your control. As in, there are loads of things that can go wrong. Imagine that you're dinning with a girl. Your food has a bad taste. You shouldn't worry. Simply act cool and get the garçon. Don't scream.

    Or let's say that you're in a queue to buy a ticket and someone gets in front of you. Either you act cool and say "hey man, this is a queue. Every single one of us is losing its beauty waiting, share that moment with us and get back to your place ". Or you get all annoyed and scream.
