Macbeth’s desperation and the decision of overly trusting the Weird Sisters in Act 4, taking their forecasts too literally as well as letting others’ ideas influence him eventually leads to his downfall as their main goal is to create evil and dominate his mind. This is where Macbeth’s character shifts significantly as he becomes increasingly confident and puts his ambition over conscience. As a result, he is no longer honored and respected by the people of Scotland and he hates to admit that he is not able to govern properly as he wishes the doctor can cure the country. It is evident that others perceive Macbeth from this point on as a madman and devil especially with Caithness and Angus’ descriptions of him being a “dwarfish thief” and unfit for being the king as he claimed it illegally while not realizing the demands upon him. He lacks the greatness, character, and ability to fill the role.
