Vanity or Confidence

All of us are susceptible to occasional bouts of vanity. Some people find it difficult to resist a chance to gaze lovingly at themselves in a mirror or talk at length about their favorite subject- themselves. In The Rape of the Lock, Pope holds up a different kind of mirror, one that he hoped would prompt people to take a more critical look at themselves. Think about your own experience. What is the line between vanity and overconfidence, and how do you know when someone has crossed it? How do you respond to people's vanity? Craft a complete and well-reasoned response, and then respond to two classmates' posts.
