Confident people often struggle to distinguish between arrogance and confidence. They fail to identify the threshold when confidence turns into arrogance, which makes them act apprehensive and can often inhibit their confidence.
The challenge with finding the threshold is that it relies heavily on other people's perception of you, which also means that you're not only dealing with your own actions and behaviors but people's judgement of themselves. The truth is, we often use ourselves as the benchmark in judging other people's actions, and those with an inferiority complex, or recognize weaknesses and shortcomings in themselves, can be critical of those who do not exhibit the weaknesses they have.
Confident people come across as arrogant to those lacking in confidence.
There is a possible remedy to this: always be respectful and make others feel better about themselves.
Arrogant individuals want to hog attention and try to look better than others.
Confident people are happy with themselves, don't need to compare themselves to others, and don't need to put others down to feel better about themselves.
And as long as you give others space to express themselves, show support, and remain respectful, people will have no reason to assume you're being arrogant.
