It is an evolutionary thing walking around trying to make yourself look bigger but it all comes down to what you personally believe that makes the biggest difference.
Not if it's hardwired into you. We're still animals at the end of the day. Most fights start with posturing. Again, hardwired into us as we evolved. You'll naturally feel more intimidated by a male with good posture over a guy with bad posture. Again, evolution.
No matter how many times you tell yourself you feel confident hunched over looking down at the ground you won't feel confident, anyone that says they do is lying to you and themselves.
