Sometimes I see translations of selbstbewusst as confident, arrogant or selfish. I would like to know if this word has a negative or positive denotation. If I call someone of selbstbewusst, is it a compliment or not?
Generally, "selbstbewusst" has a positive connotation and I've rarely heard it used in a negative way.
It could be used as an euphemism for arrogant or selfish, however. Tone and context would help you decide if that's the fact.Tweet
