He lives under the assumption that he is simply better than most people. His arrogance is revealed though his interactions with characters, the attitudes he demonstrates, his statements regarding supremacy, and his controlling persona. These attitudes are underlined with racial remarks and feelings. This is particularly apparent in his thoughts on the topic of white supremacy. In the beginning of the story he says, "If we don't look out the white race will be-will be utterly submerged…”.
Brutus tries to convince the conspirators why killing Caesar is wrong as well. Also, the fickle Roman Public are easily induced by people of higher power’s ideas. Such as, Brutus and Antony’s funeral speeches. Caesar also tries to tell Antony that Cassius is most certainly dangerous because he is always plotting something, and he thinks too much. This ends up foreshadowing for events later in the tragedy.
One of the best examples of the effects of an inflexible mind set is Julius Caesar. Caesar was quite a capable leader, because he had confidence, determination, the ability to judge character, and he worked for the public good. However, Caesar let his popularity and confidence turn him into an arrogant and stubborn leader. Caesar himself shamelessly tells the senators that he will not change his mind in his “North Star” speech (3. 1.
Caesar was beginning to show signs that he saw himself above roman jurisdiction which was contradicting Republic values. The senate also did not like the fact that Julius Caesar was extremely disrespectful towards them on multiple accounts which showed his arrogance. Suetonius states, “Two tribunes of the people ordered the fillet to be removed at once from his statue and the offender imprisoned. But Caesar reprimanded and summarily degraded them both.” The reason why Julius Caesar was eventually assassinated was because he was too obvious about his motives. Caesar had no problem acting like a tyrant in front of the senate even though they were the ones that gave him his titles and honors.
Although he is completely honest about his emotions, Holden still habitually lies to those around about other subjects such as his name. Even though Holden is sometimes honest, most of the time he confirms that he is a “pathological liar”, which demonstrates that he is a phony. Holden Caulfield is a phony because he frequently lies to those around him and regularly pretends to be something that he is not. He continually lies about insignificant subjects, such as his name. On multiple occasions he pretends to be tough, even though in reality he feels weak.
He, too, is often at a disadvantage and uses his own wits and control of language to survive in various circumstances. In some ways he follows the principles of an “underdog” with his somewhat depressing current status. The readers are usually “rooting” for Holden due to the given background knowledge of this kid. They are concerned for him and want him to succeed no matter what he does. On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner.
In the fictional story, Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, certain character traits empowered leaders to confront challenges successfully. Such as portraying responsibility and confidence or stubbornness. The first trait that demonstrates a powerful leader is stubbornness or confidence. Many times these being stubborn is considered to be a bad trait, but in a leader it can cause them to argue for things they think are right. They will not easily give in to others ideas, even if they know they are the wrong ideas.
This action negatively impacts him due to the developed hatred the other characters gain towards Macbeth. His ambition has led to not just the death of Duncan and Banquo but also many others such as the Duncan’s chambermaid and Macduff’s family. This slaughter ruins Macbeth’s original image of a brave, valiant, worthy gentleman to the point that others begin to address him as tyrant. Young Siward, when Macbeth told him his name, stated that “The devil himself could not pronounce a title more hateful to mine ear.” (V. vii). This quote only further emphasizes the fact that Macbeth’s name has turned from one of bravery, as shown by the Sergent (I. ii), to one of disgrace and has been condemned.
Peter demonstrated behaviors and competencies consistent with effective leadership in modern life, while his darker side was characterized by an erratic leader enforced through humiliation and horror. Peter was very opportunistic in his actions. He was remarkably able to focus on the future and for his determination to realize his ambitions. His changes are benchmarks for every leader, such as his energy, his continuous personal education and development, his speed and decisiveness, the creation of a new culture, and his extraordinary capacity to lead a nation or people. Despite being a great leader, Peter had quite a few mistakes, which were usually just as spectacular as his achievements.
Thus, Cassius, Brutus and Mark Antony all use ethos, pathos and logos to manipulate one another and bring the people of Rome to their sides, resulting in total chaos. First, Cassius uses ethos, pathos and logos to manipulate Brutus into joining the conspirators. When Cassius first mentions joining the conspirators Brutus is sceptical and asks him “into what
This is wrong. The main reason is the bad campaigning that candidates do for the swing state’s votes. Although there are many objections, obviously the electoral college should be abolished. The electoral college is just a ticking time bomb of politics. Why let the electors ruin our right to vote?
