Confidence :-.

Shows your skills, positive attitude, knowledge and much more.

Then we are talking about overconfidence :

Always shows your weak points like your fake attitude, your surplus energy, your fake personality, and many more.

So, these are common differences in confidence and overconfidence.

Sir/mam, there is my example that shows the difference between confidence & overconfident. For example, if I say I am the only one suitable for this job it's my confidence.

If I say I am the only one suitable for this job it's my overconfident.

Confidence shows knowledge & it is task-oriented.

Overconfidence shows a fake attitude and it is ego-oriented.

In my opinion, Confidence is a strong belief on your knowledge, strategy, and capability to work hard and make that thing happen. They don't think about other's judgment.

Overconfidence on the other hand no research, no tendency to learn more, and planning and strategizing only based on the current knowledge that they had. They are unable to foresee the challenges. And hence in the end fail to accomplish the goal. They do think about other people and work accordingly.

The difference between confidence and over-confidence in what we believe in any task. That is;

If we are sure about a task or action or activity result with past experience and right decisions, it is confidence.

Although aiming for the same but without considering the facts, it is over confidence.

Thank you mam/sir.

Here is an only small difference, if I say am suitable for this job it's my confidence but if I say am the only one suitable for this job it's my over-confidence.

That means, confidence is good understanding about our strength and over-confidence is like one underestimating other people.
