It comes up every once in a while. In fact, I'm pretty sure not more than a few weeks can go by without someone on T-Nation talking about the virtues of either being cocky or being humble.
Even TC, in his various Atomic Dog articles, can go from a piece about how we all have warlords and conquerors and what not as ancestors, to one in which he writes about humility being a virtue.
In fact, he even says that the only men who should be cocky are those who have won an Olympic Gold and a Nobel Prize.
My beliefs are centered around masculine values. I believe that intelligence and power should always place higher than bullshit politically correct "my wife might hear what I'm saying" humility and knowing your own place in life.
I believe that true power of mind and body can only be attained through energetic confidence. Some call it being cocky. I have no beef with that. T-men are cocky. All of them. Every last one of them.
In fact, humility is on the opposite side of the emotional spectrum, and I won't be the mean guy that tells those of you who choose to be humble boys that, in fact, humility might just be bad for confidence levels. For competitions among social groups. For you sex life.
No, I'm definetly not going to tell you any of these things.
So, cocky vs humble, which do you choose and why.
