opposite of 'confident'
What is the opposite of 'confident'? I thought it was 'inconfident' but I cannot find the word in the dictionaries that I have.
How about insecure?
Are "having a fragile ego", insecure, and lacking in confidence different definitions for the same meaning?
They're not necessarily identical and wouldn't fit all situations, but they're in similar territory.
Yes, I have checked many sources, but I did fail understanding the exact meaning of 'having a fragile ego' thanks to poor reading. Regarding your link, it was helpful and I brought the following phrase:
"a bruised ego (=a loss of confidence) "
