Cockiness: n. conceited and frequently with excessive confidence and assertiveness
Cockiness may have originated from the behavior observed in a rooster or other aggressive bird confidently strutting among hens and asserting himself on them. I have seldom heard the expression used for female behavior even though I am sure that some women are cocky too at times.
Cockiness frequently originates from a sense of excessive pride or conceitedness and cocky humans frequently try to dominate a conversation in an aggressive confident way.
Some cockiness originates from a human with exceptional ability and may be considered somewhat appropriate but when it comes from someone who has excessive pride without much ability then it can be a rather annoying or even humorous display of inappropriate foolish behavior.
