Prospero's indifference about how Caliban felt, meant that Caliban's emotional distress was one sided. In addition to Caliban, Prospero's yearning for vengeance also creates internal issues for himself. After Ferdinand and Miranda announce their marriage, Prospero claims his "rejoicing / At nothing can be more," because he must "perform / Much business appertaining," (Shakespeare, 95-99). Usually, a father focuses more on his daughter getting married, however Prospero can only focus on his plans for vengeance. Some believe that the characters internal struggles were caused by the wrongdoers, and not a lack of forgiveness; however, at the end of the play, after Prospero becomes a more virtuous character, his conflicts with his brother and Caliban are resolved, clearly showing that their focus on vengeance is what caused the internal struggles.
To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55). Here, Jekyll is stating that he represses his private desires so much and wants the irregularities in life so badly that he finally faces a challenge, whether to keep his private figure hidden or to reveal it to society and subsequently be judged by society. He now has to make a life changing decision, if he continues to enjoy his pleasures secretly, he will have it on his conscience daily and be tormented by the guilt; if he confesses them, he will no longer have the guilt on his conscience, but he will also be judge harshly by society. Mary Shelly also uses her protagonist, Victor Frankenstein, in way that empsizes
Using false feelings of superiority as a way to mask inner feelings of inferiority is a seemingly effective method to use when trying to appear more authoritative than is true. However, what begins as “false feelings” quickly escalates into genuine arrogance.

Jack 's egotism is clear to see from the first meeting, yet Ralph still manages to overshadow him. Golding sets the tone for Jack’s character straight away through Piggy 's "intimida[tion]" at Jack 's "superiority" (26).

Society looks down upon actions such as viewing others’ sexual features while you are already married, which makes the reader appalled by Stanley’s character and makes the reader feel an extreme hatred towards Stanley even before the action of the play has begun. This account of Stanley and his actions establishes him as the villain in the play, but, in any story, there is always a hero to contrast the villain. Typically, this hero is the exact opposite of the villain, and, in this play, although it may not be clearly defined, Blanche is set up by Williams in the beginning to be the hero. Williams does this by depicting her as the opposite of Stanley with her sense of propriety and class that is juxtaposed with the harsh environment of Stanley’s world (Williams 1119). Although the reader becomes aware that Blanche is not quite the hero that she was expected to be as they play progresses, the reader is always compelled to take Blanche’s side when injustices are brought upon her by Stanley due to Williams’ careful construction of Blanche and Stanley’s characters in the very beginning.

Iago believes the only way a servant will not be outdone by their leaders is to put their own desires in front of their masters. Iago does this by manipulating Othello, and everyone dear to him, to fulfill Iago’s desires of vengeance towards Othello. Furthermore, Iago believes that Othello has robbed him of the role of lieutenant, and his wife. Leading Iago to suspect that Othello is “leap[ing] into [his] seat”, (1,2,285) suggesting that his wrongfulness stems from Othello depriving him of his ambitions, and passions, inducing a bitter hatred towards Othello. However, Iago influences Othello by tricking him into thinking Iago is “full of love and honesty” (3,3,119) when in reality he is using Othello to meet his desires.

Creon becomes arrogant to admit his own mistake to keep his reputation as a wise prince.

Due to his hypocrisy and stubbornness, the brave soldiers of the country of Thebes are afraid him to report to him, and his wise subjects refuse to advise him. Creon’s inflexible mind and behavior provoke a clash between him and his subjects which would ultimately lead to his

With his gain of intelligence, Charlie realizes that society does not treat him as well as he thought, and this discovery leads to much emotional pain. The experiment itself “...raises the question of whether or not scientific progress was achieved…” (Wroble). This idea emphasizes the abuse of science and technology in the novel that develops when the experiment concludes with Charlie deteriorating back to his original state due to unfinished research. “... humans should not try to attain knowledge, but rather that they should be conscious of the limitations of a purely intellectual approach to life.” (Telgen).
