RE: RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled Character Traits

There's nothing implicit about it, just because you're "tough" doesn't mean you have self confidence too. Self confidence comes from experience. Being tough doesn't require experience. Self confidence without experience is little more than arrogance and only luck when it all comes out right side up.

"Self-confidence" is part and parcel with being "tough," and, consequently, doesn't need to be mentioned because it's already implicit.
