    It means feeling great about yourself, being a woman it means feeling beautiful without having to wear makeup... It means feeling good about yourself even when looks are through your way, not being afraid to socialize or talk to the guy you always had a crush on... It means not caring about other peoples negative comments and judgements... It simply means believing that anything can be accomplished as long as you believe in yourself.  Confidence is beauty smile

    Good question. I know exactly what it mean. It means "without a doubt" . I think that one should only speak for what they know for sure. Like touching a match,and not wondering if it is hot or not any more.
    I have been allowed by God to view our celestial existence which is evidence beyond science. It is a part of the the unknown the unseen and the hidden knowledge of our existence.
    That make me confident from what is spoken thereto.......and so I write.

    Confident, to me, means being secure in your own intelligence and behavior, knowing that you can handle whatever comes your way.

    Confidence is being true to yourself.   Some people have been put down much of their lives (so unfortunate) and lack the self esteem they would have had otherwise.  These people usually are not very confident.

    Others try to be what they are not.  If one is a fake, one is a liar.  Liars have a difficult time keeping up with their lies, therefore they often lack confidence. 

    When you are honest, and true to yourself, you also find the right kind of people to spend time with.

    Confident means you don't require the approval of anyone or anything outside of yourself to feel good about your choices in life.

    We may need to make clear first about the word "confident" here. Obviously, it is a noun here, then it does not refer to the meaning of "confidence", but a very close friend or even a lover who knows you maybe more than you know yourself. Am I right?

    In all my life, I look forward to such a person, but it is just a mirage, just staying in the imagination. Sad! For my knowledge, a confident means a refuge harbor, in which I would feel absolutely safe and comfortable, even it is so simple and plain.

    In the case that the questioner made mistake, i.e. it refers to "confidence", not a people, "confidence" means to me that people feel satisfied with what they have, including tangible and intangible, material and spiritual, interior and exterior. True confidence is based on the true knowledge about self, but doesn't mean absolute and blind belief in self. True confidence greatly contributes to beauty and success.

    Confident mean knowing exactly who you are, your strength and weaknesses, and how to utilize your strength with modestly. Try to avoid being overconfident because you will look like an arrogant person, who will never learn something new nor does not need anyone in life.

    I pity a person who think he / she knows about anything but actually they are far from becoming a person they think they are and would not open themselves for any opinion or critics, because they are too confident about themselves. So stay true to yourself and know who you really are, then you will become more confident and keep it humble.

    It is the action that I take to accomplish my goal. Confident within myself is what I am when carrying out goal or objective. I am always confident in my work, my belief and my desire.
