    Default Are they both auxiliary verbs

    Dear teachers,

    I was reading an English grammar book for beginner.
    This is an example sentence in the book:
    "You should feel confident."
    The example shows that the word "should" is an auxiliary verb.

    I am not sure whether the word "feel" is an auxiliary verb or not.
    Could you help me please?
    Thanks

    No. "feel" is a main verb in bare infinitive form.
