Portia believe Arragon to be a fool.

Thus hath the candle singed the moth. O these deliberate fools! When they do choose, They have the wisdom by their wit to lose. Portia sees the Prince of Morocco as self absorbed, arrogant. "A gentle riddance! Draw the curtains, go. / Let all of his complexion choose me so" Portia is very interested in Bassanio and tells him so. (to BASSANIO) I pray you, tarry. Pause a day or two
Before you hazard, for in choosing wrong
I lose your company. Therefore forbear awhile.
There’s something tells me—but it is not love—
I would not lose you, and you know yourself
Hate counsels not in such a quality.
