10 things confident people never do in social situations

By | Tina Fey |

Want to come off as more confident?

The old proverb, “fake it till you make it,” can be extremely helpful when it comes to confidence.

Start by avoiding doing these 10 things that confident people never do in social situations. 

Soon enough, you’ll find yourself feeling more and more socially confident. 

1) They don’t brag about their accomplishments 

Do you know any people that are always bragging about how successful or happy they are?

I know a couple people like that. One person in particular participated in a dance competition, and told anyone who would listen how proud and honored she was to have won second place.

But how did these people come off to you? Most of the time, people who feel the need to convince others of their success aren’t really confident of it themselves.

I later found out that this person I knew only won second place because there were actually only 2 people in the competition. Yep, she won second place by default. 

I’m not trying to belittle her effort or skill — the fact that she participated in the competition at all is something to be proud of.

But it doesn’t show her to be a confident person, as she wouldn’t have such a strong need to seek admiration from others otherwise. 

Confident people rather spend their energy living their great accomplishments rather than talking about them. Because if they’re truly great, you won’t even need to tell people. 

2) They don’t monopolize the conversation

As Eugene Baker said, “You never learn anything by listening to yourself talk.” Confident people definitely agree.
