The next time you're not feeling too confident, just fake it...
A new poll found the average American feels insecure five times a day. But half of people who pretend to be confident say it actually MAKES them more confident. A third overall said it's something they do a lot.
The top things that can shake our confidence on a typical day include speaking in front of a large group, not being fully prepared for something and being the last person to show up for a meeting.
The top jobs we associate with confidence are doctors and nurses, members of the military, people in business, politicians and athletes.
And finally: The poll also looked at the top traits we admire in confident people. The top five are being knowledgeable, kind, decisive, authoritative and fearless.
