I feel overconfidence is different from superiority complex. The term 'complex' itself refers to a psychological disorder of a kind. People displaying superiority complex are actually highly insecure. They lack self worth. In order to feel better about themselves they pretend to feel and act superior to others. They feel that they can compensate their insecure feelings by bringing others down. Such complexes can be biological due to chemical imbalances and gentic make up for hypertension and depression. Or it can be sociological due to negative social experiences. It can be managed by prescription pills or therapy.

Now overconfidence on the other hand is when a person oversteps the boundary of confidence. Overconfidence occurs when either a person is too good at something or they are mediocre but have too much false praise and lucky breaks. Its a thin line between confidence and overconfidence and most people have a hard time balancing it.

At the same time I think people are too sensitive with the confidence of people. Sometimes society expects excessive humility. For some reason its considered better to downplay ones own abilities instead of confidently acknowledging ones strengths. If someone is really good at something I do not think there is anything wrong with them being aware of it and stating it. It seems that if someone is well aware of their abilities, people are ready to beat them down for being overconfident. Its almost as if we as a society have a complex in letting people know and acknowledge that they are much better at something than us.

Racism, Misogyny etc are whole new topics on their own.

Yes fully agree to your reasons.....usually people are superiority complexed bcoz of their background,their looks add one more aspect to feel superior than others....n bcoz of them majority feels inferiority complex.
