Are You Confident Enough To Take A Self Confidence Test?

You might be able to say that you are confident with yourself. But just how confident are you? Or the better questions is, are you truly confident?

A lot of people actually believe that they are confident. But given a different time or scenario than what they are used to, they suddenly lose their self-confidence. One should know that true confidence is not a passing feeling that comes and goes. True self-confidence shows itself in every aspect of our lives.

Self Confidence Test – Are You Truly Confident?

Find out by answering the following questions with a “yes” or “no” answer:

  1. Do you love yourself? Do you accept yourself for who you are and what you have?
  2. Do you like to experiment and take risks?
  3. Do you believe in yourself and your abilities?
  4. Do you face your fears and avoid letting them paralyse you? 
  5. Do you find comfort in yourself?
  6. Do have a happy disposition?
  7. Are you aware of your limitations but focus on your potentials?

So how did you get on?

If you answered “Yes” to at least four of these questions, then without a doubt, you are a truly confident person! So lets take a look at each of these questions:

  1. The first question is all about self-love, which is at the heart of confidence. You can’t be confident if you don’t know how to love yourself or accept your own body. Confidence starts from within, not from other people’s approval, which is related to the next question about self-belief.

  2. Of course, people who know how to face their fears are also those people who are not afraid to take risks and love to experiment. A truly confident person is innovative, creative, and not afraid to try new things. Because they believe in themselves, they are likely the type to push boundaries and find out how far more they can go. They are not afraid to fail or commit mistakes because they know it’s a part of learning and eventually succeeding.

  3. You are truly confident if you think highly of yourself and believe that you have what it takes to achieve your goals. You can cope with barriers or obstacles simply because you believe you can. Unlike people with little or no confidence in themselves, you don’t rely on other people to do things for you.

  4. Truly confident people do not let their fears win over them, which is common in people with low self confidence. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have fears at all. But they think rationally and face their fears by acting on it. What they fear the most is being paralyzed by fear itself.

  5. A truly confident person is happy in their own skin and do not wish to be anyone else. He or she is not insecure, even when there are setbacks. But believes and values his or her talents and abilities despite what other people might think or say.

  6. When you are truly confident, you are happy with your life and you are usually cheerful. Again, it doesn’t mean you are never sad. But it means you are always able to manage and become happy when you’re down. A person with low self esteem usually blames himself or herself when things go wrong. Confident people, on the other hand, just brush it off and then try again.

  7. Confident people are aware of their limitations but do not dwell on it. Instead, they identify their strengths and nurture their potentials. They know that they are not perfect and that they can’t have everything, but they remain optimistic even during times of struggle. They work on achieving what they want that’s why they are likely to head in that direction.

These are the hallmarks of a truly confident person. Unless you score highly on this quiz, you cannot say for sure that you are a truly confident person. So, work on those aspects where you answered “No” and you can build your confidence up.
