Transcript Do You Have Self-Confidence? By Salvatore V. Didato, Ph.D. News America Syndicate Special to the Montrose Voice Willie Loman, in ArthurMiller's "Death of a Salesman," once was a self-reliant man. But through a series of setbacks, he lost the trait which once served him well. In the story, he deludes himself into believing that he still has self-confidence and winds up a loser. Unfortunately, some of us are like this. We falsely think we have enough self- confidence for happiness but, like Loman, it only supports a kind of tinny optimism. Self-confidence is the mark of a happy person. It isn't something easily gained, however. It takes a lifetime of successes, from little to large, to build up such inner strength and it would be hard to imagine living successfully without it. Where do you stand on this most important personality trait? For the items ahead, use this three-point scale to pick the answer which best describes you: often true—1; sometimes true—2; rarely true—3. 1.1 am not a spontaneous person around others. 2. Down deep, I don't like it when the joke is on me. 3. I grant favors and requests of others when I really don't want to do so. 4. My friends don't follow my suggestions in things like picking a restaurant, choosing a movie, etc. 5. I have trouble making decisions like buying clothing, setting a date with friends, going on vacation, etc. 6. When people push ahead of me in a line, it's not like me to make a fuss. 7.1 Bpend a lot of time improving and rechecking the things I complete. 8. I think of appropriate thoughts to express to others, but only after we've parted. Those who are self confident are often persuasive. They can usually get others to see things from their point of view.

[■[.PUIA.-T.H'mi.l;!.. sajBn MAY 16, 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 17 d Score This isn't a test of right versus wrong answers. Now and then, we all compulsively check our work for errors, have trouble making decisions, and do favors unwillingly. But most people who are self- confident answer the items "rarely true." Find your score by adding the numbers which go along with your answers. 20-24 points—You have "high self- confidence. 13-19 points—You are like most of us with average self-confidence. 8-12 points—You are low on self- confidence. □ Explanation Self-confidence and success go hand in hand. Anyone, from a successful mother to a champion boxer, can possess this combination. When Muhammad Ali once declared, "When you are as great as I am, it's hard to be humble." he was an example of some rare high achievers who have a super abundance of self-confidence. Generally speaking, people with high self-confidence have many things going for them. They tend to be dominant in social groups, are good at problem-solving and enjoy many friends. The quiz items, which are similar to those found on personality tests, show the following: 1. Self-confident persons can express their spontaneous thoughts and feelings without being self-conscious and guarded. 2. Self-confidence goes with self- acceptance. The ability to laugh at yourself is one of the strongest signs of both these traits. 3. It is difficult for those with low self- confidence to refuse doing a favor, because their needs for acceptance are high. 4. Those who are self-confident often are persuasive. They usually can get others to see things from their point of view. 5. People with a high self-confidence level can make decisions without agonizing over them. If they make a mistake, they have enough faith in themselves to roll with it and land on their feet. 6. Expressing objections to others takes self-confidence. Those low on this quality find it tough to oppose people who oppose them. 7. Those with little self-confidence often doubt their ability. Therefore, they check and recheck their work. 8. Self-confident persons speak their mind. On the other hand, those who think of the right thing to say after it's too late usually have a glimmer of a thought at the appropriate time, but lack the confidence to speak out. NOTE: Whatever your score on the quiz, there's always room to improve. Keep in mind that associating with self-confident friends often helps to form new habits. Try to mirror their behavior and learn how they deal with their self-doubts and face challenges which confront them.
