A good example would be when Creon did not want to listen to the people of Thebes that told him that Antigone did the right thing. But instead he would rather listen to himself due to his excessive self-pride. In addition, all of the tragedies that Creon has made was because of him.

Creon had many chances not to start these tragedies but since he was king and had power, he had too much self pride and could not see that he had initiated many of the tragedies that he would make that he was soon going to regret.
Decades ago, when a friend of mine and I were both young and ill-educated about the ways of the world, he said, "Betty, this is why guys and girls are so different. When guys have a problem, they want to hear solutions. When girls have a problem, all they want to do is have you listen to them on and on and they don 't want to hear solutions."

He pointed out Mr. Cathey consistent bombardments of challenges and how he handle each situation.

I do; however, believe that those in more commanding roles do desperately need to feel that it is their duty to sufficiently address these men in the same way they do those
Moushumi, having always wanted to distance herself from her parents and her roots, now resents the fact that her marriage is the perfect example of what her parents wanted. Just as Gogol had felt a sense of belonging in his relationships with Ruth and Maxine, thanks to the new identities he thought he wanted, he finds a sense of belonging in this relationship as their backgrounds are similar; Moushumi appears to see an identity she doesn’t want in Gogol, which causes her to distance herself from him, and eventually she begins an affair with another
O’Brien depicts a picture in which men are required to perform as brave soldiers, but they become overwhelmed and are consumed by their environment. O’Brien states “they twitched and made moaning sounds and covered their heads and said Dear Jesus and flopped around on the earth” (18). He then continues to describe that after the chaos, they must compose themselves and put on a brave façade for each other. O’Brien is trying to emphasize to his readers that the men and women who fight in war are human- they carry their own emotional baggage and still react to fulfil social expectations of their roles as infantrymen. During the violence they can be seen reacting as humans.
