When Lady Macbeth is by herself, it is absolutely her true character. Foreshadowing helps the audience understand what is about to happen. In this quote, Lady Macbeth makes it pretty clear that she wants to reign. This is also intertwined with the prophecies Macbeth is given which makes the audience think about Duncan's life. Shakespeare uses a hyperbole when he illustrates Lady Macbeth asking for spirits to "unsex" her.
Upon reading her husbands letter, Lady Macbeth is too very ecstatic about their future. She tells Macbeth that “thy letters have transported me beyond/This ignorant present, and I feel now/The future in an instant” (I, v, 54-56). It’s revealed to the reader from the delicately chosen word, “transported,” that time, in an instant was stopped and Lady Macbeth was looking into their future. The reader can also glimpse a part of Lady Macbeth’s selfish character here. With just the mention of Macbeth being king, Lady Macbeth can see their future instantly, and is contemplating committing murder to get it.

Similarly, in the novel 'Animal Farm', Squealer soothes over any conflicts the animals have between what they know and what they have been told. Although both characters have complete opposite ways of dealing with conflict, both methods prove effective. In Act 1 Scene 5 of Macbeth, Lady Macbeth tests her husband by speaking to him in puns. She then tries to persuade Macbeth by telling him that if he kills Duncan then; 'our nights and days to come give solely sovereign sway and masterdom'. Lady Macbeth tries to convince Macbeth that killing Duncan would be of great interest to him as it will give him great prosperity.

Thanks to research in Positive Psychology, we know that this way of approaching work, does not work as it is backwards.

The current Giledean society is to protect them from such fear and is actively promoted through re-education centres run by Aunts. “They made mistakes, says Aunt Lydia, we don’t tend to repeat them… A thing is valued, she says, only if it is rare and hard to get. We want you to be valued, girls.” (Atwood 141) However, such protection has peaked to the point of sexism, where the roles of men overpower the role of women, and the women are no longer heard. The first exaggeration of sexism Atwood portrays is the role that women uphold in the Giledean society. Because of the environmental pollution that has caused the sterility of 99% of women and men, women are ranked and given a role based on their functionality.

As a result, second person do more hard work to reach at his own satisfactory line. Because of the under- indulging, people can understand that how hard work is important in our life. People, who are facing “under- indulging” will know the importance of hard work to satisfy their needs.

People have different views about others…some are always underestimated. People might infer different points from rating them good or bad, but I’d say that it is better for one to be underrated by the people than to overrate them. In our daily life we can observe that if a person is undervalued in his society, he or she tries to set up a good status by refining his or her abilities.
There will always be negative views because we do not live even near a Utopia society and we cannot please everybody. Self concept includes two factors, competence and likability.
