You're miscategrozing the kind of boistrousness chads have as confidence. It's not confidence they perceive. They still call it entitlement when they read his character, but his ostentatiousness is the thing they emphasize to disguise that, and that's what they call confidence.
Unseen traits can be identified by emphasizing something else, and can be the fuel for the label/ identification.
And you can't really get people to change their process on it because people are primal; enshrine hierarchy; don't care about the plights of the weak save for virtue signalling and 80 likes on a facebook post.
