    By self possessed I mean trying to conduct yourself in a pleasant and confident way to try to instill pleasantness and confidence in the person you are speaking to.

    If anything, some people who aren't self possessed should regard themselves as being the more arrogant because they give the impression of thinking themselves superior enough not to have to make an effort with other people.
