Distinguishing between confidence and competence is essential. It is sometimes essential to spot those who make boastful claims about what they can achieve but do not have the competence to back up their claims with real action.


Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, writing in Fast Company, makes the following comments regarding over-confident but incompetent people:
  • They crave approval, recognition, and validation.
  • They exaggerate their competence.
  • They often lack self-awareness.
  • They benefit from non-meritocratic status and privilege.
