Confidence as arrogance

I just read a New York Times article today that made me think about our perceptions of people as they relate to ourselves. Here in New York, you certainly meet a number of people who are extremely confident. But where do we draw the line between someone who is really confident and someone who thinks she’s a know-it-all? I realized during my contemplation that perhaps it’s all in the eye of the beholder; because she speaks so confidently and assertively and stands behind her opinion 100 percent, she comes off to me as cocky because I am insecure about my own opinions.
