What is the difference between being arrogant and having a confidence?
An arrogant person offends and his victories are resented. A confident person is respected for his skill and his victories are welcomed..
There is unfounded confidence and well founded confidence. A person with well founded confidence has a fair amount of certainty about himself or his thinking, knows that it is based on something solid, and doesn't question himself/his beliefs. A confident person may show his confidence, or he may choose to hide it (out of concern that others will view it as "arrogance" or "conceit"). So, whether he shows his confidence or not is one thing, but the person with confidence is comfortable with himself and his thinking; but that doesn't mean he doesn't respect other people or their thinking.
An arrogant person thinks he knows better than anyone else, is better than anyone else, and isn't required to treat anyone else with respect. An arrogant person may or may not have a solid reason/foundation for his self-confidence; but by virtue of his lack in interpersonal skills, such a person's "confidence" is inflated far out of proportion to the size of any "legitimate" foundation for that confidence.
Well founded confidence is generally considered a positive trait. Arrogance is always considered a very negative one.
Confidence will be interpreted as arrogance if it is not presented as un-confidence.
An arrogant person is self-important and believes themself superior to others.
A confident person is self-assured.
