You're confusing confidence with cockiness.

Confidence is being sure of yourself, no matter what the external factors.
Cockiness is being sure of yourself, but that sense is overinflated and unfounded on actual performance, but rather just being told something.
#107 - manollette (01/01/2014) [-]
If that is your definition of cockiness, then you are misinformed about Marines. I won't say the degree of a Marine's confidence is accurate, but that confidence is very founded, and based on actual performance. Even the non-combat MOS's spend 13 weeks being torn down and brought back up to be the best, not including actual Marine Combat Training, which lasts another month.

I suppose this is one of those situations where you have to experience it to understand it. I won't lie, I do get a tad irritated when someone assumes they know whether or not something is founded, true, reasonable, etc. when they have no first hand experience of it. But, from the outside looking in, I can understand it, even if I'd have a hard time condoning it.

How on earth does courtesy and humility translate into thinking a situation is hopeless?
#103 - manollette (01/01/2014) [-]
Because it's the exact opposite of what you're claiming the Marines do. Cockiness means I think I can win no matter how stacked the odds are against me. Humility would mean that I have an accurate, and even humble estimate of my abilities, and will act as such.

Would an accurate estimate of a situation where I'm outnumbered 20 to 1 include the vehement belief that I can and will come out the victor? No. But an excessively cocky belief in your own abilities can drive you to match your own estimation.

You can deserve something without acting like the world should bow down to you.
#105 - manollette (01/01/2014) [-]
I get the cockiness; it's practically a defining trait. Even a superiority complex, to an extent. But I haven't known too many Marines who had a sense of entitlement in the way you describe it.
#104 - manollette (01/01/2014) [-]
I'm starting to think your comments are based on your first hand knowledge of one *really* crappy Marine.

You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join manolette in the sun.
