To Macbeth’s surprise, he was named the new Thane of Cawdor because of his skills and bravery and his great ambition. Along came the witches and prophesied that Macbeth will be king of Scotland. The good trait of ambition that gave him a title of the new Thane also gave him the title of king but through the action of murder. It was not long lasting though, and his flaw of ambition that got him those high-class titles also ended him with defeat and death. Macbeth through all this knows that he has gone too far and that he can not escape his problems.
Macbeth was a very selfish man, who only thought about himself. He was very interested when the witches told thiem about how they predict he will be king.

In the beginning, Lady Macbeth was the dominant person in their relationship as she could manipulate him into doing her dirty work.

Going from a caring partner to a careless one is the second way Macbeth changes and an eye opener to the type of person one may become in a relationship after attaining great importance or a highly ranked

She wanted the spirits to give her murderous thoughts so Duncan’s kindness wouldn’t give her the urge to stop Macbeth from killing him.
He kills Duncan, and completes a foul act. However, it is all according to the prophecy, so it holds as fair. What would be a fair act to bring in the heir to the throne transitions from a positive connotation to one that is foul, and therefore a paradox blooms with these events.
