You are generally pretty self-confident and willing to learn from experience, which also helps build confidence. Sometimes, though, if your confidence is too extreme, it could be worth toning down how you express it a little, so you don’t intimidate others less confident than yourself – use your confidence to encourage theirs!
Score between 35 and 24 points
Some days, if events aren’t too challenging, your confidence is OK. On other days, you probably need to practise your skills or ‘fake it’ a little. You can also learn from the positive experiences you have and remind yourself about past successes to help you become more confident that things will work out well.

Confidence can be something of a struggle and you may need to question some of your self-beliefs about what you can’t do, boosting your confidence by reminding yourself what you can do, and building on that. Take regular opportunities to challenge your negative ideas and push yourself a little to increase your confidence more regularly.
