    That's a great question.

    I always admire the person who asks a ton of questions about the other person and actually gives recognition to the responses: To me this is a man that displays great confidence.

    Well, it's difficult to tell sometimes. Usually, if a person is bragging a lot, it's because they have LOW self confidence, and are trying to convince other people about their own "awesomeness" in an attempt to feel better about themselves. So if you see someone who's constantly trying to convince others about how great he is, then he usually has low self-esteem or low self-confidence.

    'Course, then you have people like Donald Trump, who just come in and muddy the whole thing up. :X

    Braggers talk too much, snobbish, and mostly to show-off. Confident people don't need to show-off a lot, their inner charm will show themselves without them so desperate "look at meeeee!!!!"
    I've had braggers all the time in my high school day.

    To me a bragger is all talk with no action or there the type the likes to show off to look large. People that brag do to it to make themselves look good. Confident people build you up. They dont speak about themselves. Most of the time they reserved. Quite the opposite of bragger.

    Self Confidence, people that are confident in their selves and show that they can do it, will work hard because they are confident that they will make it and will do it. Not scared, to state the facts nor to tell the truth and bluntly say it even if it sounds rude, just being truthful. As for bragging, all I can say is show off. Too clingy and cocky, I don't like people like that especially the rich people that think they're all that, just saying.

    Interesting that this has been limited to an either/or question.

    You can easily tell when someone is CONFIDENT or just plain BRAGGING.

    Usually confident people tend to deliver positive results while braggarts tend to deliver negative or more often than not, no results at all. It's fun and great to hang out with people overwhelming with confidence while hanging out with braggarts can be very annoying.

    :p

    Hard to tell till you lived or worked with that person for at least 21 days.

    You can tell a truly self confident person by the words they use.
