Can you say unconfident? I heard it mentioned in Top Chef recently, where a chef mentioned she was unconfident with her cooking skills in a certain area.
Is this the correct way to describe the opposite of having confidence?
Is inconfidence a word? I have heard it mentioned as "lack of confidence".
I am not a native English speaker.
Update: I did look it up on m-w.com before posting but should of course have included my findings here. But I just noticed that I might have not just read the add. I thought m-w didn't have the word listed, but really the add says something different.
Oxford has it listed as someone mentions though.
To clarify, I'm asking if unconfident is the correct word to use for describing the opposite of being confident, mainly because "it sounded a bit odd to me", I thought inconfident might be more correct, but as someone mentions, that isn't a word. I personally preferred "I lack confidence in my skills" but I doubt you would hear that a lot in spoken language.
