Odysseus is temparmental and it impairs his ability to be a successful leader. For example, Odysueuss states “I began to taunt the Cyclops-men around trying to check me, calm me, …‘so headstrong,…why rile the beast again’”(Homer 9.92-94). No good leader would endanger his men because he couldn’t control his temper. A leader should always have a level-head and be sensible
Piggy may well be one of the most important people among the island, but is suppressed by the others, who never realize what great significance he has. Piggy is characterized by his weight and easy to ridicule, but is much more complex under the surface. Through all insults thrown at him, Piggy stays good natured, he works primarily what is best for the group rather than his own desires. Piggy lacks social skill, which is partially why he isn’t chief, which leads to more criticism from the others. Because of his lack of social skill, Piggy doesn’t have much of a voice in the group and relies on the conch to have a say in discussions.
Yossarian is not a classic hero because, even though he performs heroic actions such as standing for the weak, having a bigger enemy, and overcoming a problem that tests his morals, ultimately he does not fit the stereotype of a hero, thus changing our perceptions of heroism. Catch-22 tells a story of an American bombardier who is at war. Yossarian isn’t the military man that goes to war and returns a war hero. Instead, he wants to get out of it because he hates the idea of war and people trying to kill him. He does anything to avoid his missions because he is simply scared of them.

Despite the warnings and omens and even his own feelings, Caesar fails to eliminate the dangerous figures such as Cassius because he believes that acting upon
The ideal leader is neither loved nor hated, but respected. He cannot be too generous, because that increases people 's expectations of him and it is impossible to keep buying the people 's love as the price gets too high. Yet, the prince should not be hated due to his violent nature, because that rises up. The prince should act in ways that keep him in power and maintain his own power. He should be able to read the character and motives of others in order to use them for his own ends.
First off, their relationship will not work out because Claudio makes various assumptions with any confrontation. Claudio is easily the most gullible character.

Claudio believes Don Pedro is trying to woo Hero for himself, and states, “‘Tis certain so, the Prince woos for himself. Friendship is constant in all other things save in the office and affairs of love.
In the play Othello is a general in the Venetian Army and is well respected and trusted by his white leaders due to his good work. This goes against the prejudices people had about Moors in that time However, throughout the play there is a constant racist atmosphere which becomes clearly visible when Othello marries the senator Brabantio’s daughter, Desdemona.

These examples show that the abuse to someone’s hospitality or refusing to give it will almost always end up in a harmful
Alexander did not exhibit three characteristics of a good leader that was talked about which is that a good leader should be nonviolent, rational, and unselfish. Alexander handled the people of Persepolis violently. He was also irrational in how he handled other cities along with how he thought of other people without thinking about how his actions may have affected how other people thought of him. Alexander was not only selfish in thinking only of himself to where he caused disgust amongst his men, but he was so selfish to where he even became cruel to his friends. People may say Alexander did good things, but he lacked important characteristics a good leader needs to have to be able to rule their people well and successfully not just as a leader, but a respectable role model to look up
In the same way he is an incomplete politician also. We cannot justify him as a complete human being rather he can be stated as a helpless king who has declined for his stubborn nature. He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence.

It was concluded in Do Androids Dream that Phil didn’t show empathy towards androids because he didn’t want to go against the norm, but this developed into a crueler more bloodthirsty hate against androids. In contrast, Rick discovered that he had stronger feelings for Luba Luft, the android, than for Phil Resch, a fellow human. This contemplation leaves Rick confused and depressed and allows him to recognize that with regard to human qualities, Luba Luft has surpassed Phil. This idea worries him because Resch is Rick’s foil, he sees himself in the twisted bounty hunter, leading Rick to wonder if one day even his human qualities will be surpassed by an
Miss Kinnian had to go away because she knew that people did not treat him fairly, and he didn’t understand that all. Charlie first experiences people making fun of him, now that he has knowledge to understand that. This event must have hurt him deeply, because the very people he trusted and thought were his friends were actually mocking and making fun of him. He feels ashamed because people are using his name as an excuse for making mistakes, and he didn’t want to be known this way. This quote states how people are not used to and are kind of afraid of Charlie, as his newfound intelligence was not the Charlie they knew.
