World-renowned personality expert reveals the truth about something we allwant more of confidence Millions of people are plagued by low self-confidence. But in "Confidence," personality expert Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic shows us that high confidence makes us less likeable, less employable, and less successful in the long run. He reveals the benefits of low confidence (including being more motivated and self-aware), teaches us how to know when to fake it, get ahead at work, improve our social skills, feel better emotionally and physically, and much more. With this engaging, practical study of our minds and emotions, we can become more capable in every facet of life. Based on decades of research, including the author s own groundbreaking work, and filled with fascinating anecdotal evidence, this will appeal to readers of" The Willpower Instinct "by Kelly McGonigal and "Succeed "by Heidi Grant Halvorson. "Confidence "will shatter every myth you ve ever believed about self-confidence and its effects on us ranging from the very personal to the global level."
