This study investigated the use of the English translation of a pa per-and-pencil self-confidence scale developed in French by Garant, Charest, Alain, and Thomassin in 1995. The translated self-confidence scare measured self-confidence, or the belief that one will succeed at whatever one undertakes, as distinct from self-esteem or the feeling that one is a worthwhile person. Unlike a number of previous studies, there was no sex: difference in self-confidence favoring men; however, scores on the masculinity portion of Bem's Sex-role Inventory (1974) were highly correlated with self-confidence for both men (r=.59) and women (r=.69).
