The Sims 4 Confident Emotion

How to Make Your Sims Very Confident

A Very Confident Sim in The Sims 4
Very Confident

Confident Mood
Very Confident is one of the harder Moods to get, as you would need Mixology or to be almost Very Happy. It's easier if your Sim is Self Assured, as they'll get a random moodlet at times. Here is a long list of Moodlets you can use to make your Sim Confident.

Skill/Career Ideal Moods
Confident is useful for the Charisma Skill in that it raises effective level of interactions, Secret Agents (early levels and Diamond Agent Branch), Interstellar Smugglers (Astronaut) and Criminal Bosses.

Somehow I get the feeling this is copied from Sims 3, not a deja-vu feeling though.
When you look at the above list under Items - Auras, you'll notic there are 2 times a reward lamp in show time and world adventures.
Now I don't remember ever having received those rewards in sims 3, but those expansions are for sims 3. Now I think that it could have been a mistake, so that you named it world adventures where you meant jungle adventures or show time where you meant get together or even get famous.
Like I said I don't remember getting those rewards in sims 3, so maybe it was meant for sims 4 just used the wrong names, just wanted to inform you about this so you can either change it or remove it. Keep up the good work Grin

Emotion Paintings From Completing Painter Extraordinaire Aspiration
This was not copied from The Sims 3 this is original to The Sims 4. The award lamps were given as a gift to TS4 players who had purchased the corresponding Sims 3 expansion packs and had them in their Origin Accounts (Games Library). It took me a long time in-game compiling the various emotional auras etc so you can be assured they are correct. Every Sims 3 pack you had in your Origin Games Library gave you another different sims 4 aura lamp in the build/buy menu.

Obviously these emotional lists are not complete as after a few years of The Sims 4 the list would be ridiculously large. However there are enough items here from the Base Game and some DLC to get the beginner player a good idea on how to use these build/buy and in-game items to their advantage.

Here is a link (click) to a forum thread where players chat about how they use the lamps in their games as well as a list of what TS4 lamps came from which ts3 expansion pack.
Well this is better than I expected, got almost all the sims 3 pack and these +4 bonus is pretty nice too, it feels OP, but I like that, sims 3 had a lot of OP stuff in the store that I really enjoyed playing with and I will certainly play with this in the future. Thanks for pointing this one out.
