Confident or Cocky?

Ha! Busted! Now you know why I can bullshit you here so confidently! This new study reveals all:
A new international self-esteem survey puts Serbia at the top, Japan at the bottom, and the U.S. in sixth place.
Of course, as in all such studies, all the caveats apply: what is the definition of self-esteem; what does the test really measure; is the sample size sufficiently large (only 59 Cypriots were asked); what are the sampling biases (apparently mostly college students were asked), etc. Still - this is a fun little piece of trivia I can use to my advantage in the future!
