Timidity redirect?[edit]

The page Timidity redirects here why? I was expecting an explanation or a description in the page. AFAIK timidity and self-confidence are not the same thing. --161.116.12.130 (talk) 19:16, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

yeah, it's an opposite, but that is explained nowhere 62.178.24.168 (talk) 03:17, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Who the hell is professor Raj Persaud?[edit]

And why should I care about his personal philosophy? Also, it has more than a hint of "True Scottsman" to it Tac-Tics (talk) 20:22, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Yes, let's find an alternative quote or introduction. Persaud is not really eminent, or possibly even credible. 219.79.199.174 (talk) 15:00, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Off topic link[edit]

I feel like the "explicit" link in the implicit vs explicit section is not related to the article, can someone change it? 216.104.97.162 (talk) 13:29, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

I've completely removed that sentence, as it didn't address the distinction between "implicit" and "explicit" self-confidence at all, but merely tried to define the words "implicit" and "explicit". I think we can assume a general reader already understands that difference (in general). What needs to be done in that paragraph is to explain how "implicit self-confidence" and "explicit self-confidence" may be defined and/or measured. - dcljr (talk) 02:26, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
