What is over-confidence?

Over-confidence is a psychological phenomenon in which a person overestimates their ability or qualification to perform a task. It can be generalized or specific, as well as temporary or long-term.

Over-confidence may lead a person to take risks that they would not otherwise, or to behave in a way that is not in their best interests. It can also lead to overestimation of one's own skills, which can hinder the person's ability to learn from their mistakes.

Overconfidence can be a result of anything from false self-assurance to arrogance.
