    By using the dictionary, COCA, and BNC. You can be arrogant without being over-confident, and vice versa.

    Yes, over-confidence and arrogance, their thin red line between the two,if it cut the high-confidence turned into arrogance.
    And you can differentiate confident to himself by his actions demonstrate his confidence either arrogance is the one who speaks for his actions, not his actions that speak about.

    Re: Arrogance vs Over confidence.

    Sometimes I fail to differentiate, especially when I speak with the mentors, virtually.
