I have always known that people are not themselves when they strive for success and reading the article about psychopaths has only strengthened me in my conviction. They operate without empathy and understanding, just like animals – instinctively.
People can be monsters when they have an excess of authority, a goal they want to achieve, or want to take revenge on someone. They often cannot control themselves and will do anything to achieve it. The desire for power or success is related to satisfying individual needs and ambitions, and thus, not paying attention to other people, often those closest to us. We often hurt them, which agrees with the definition of sadism. It results from the value of a given person – focusing on a career, or on family and friends.
I think that the most important values that should be upheld and cared about in present society are family, love, honesty, trust, friendship and empathy. Thanks to these values, people can uphold good relationships with one another and are able to sympathize. Emotions are one of the most important factors affecting the perception of the world by humans.
