Macbeth Character Traits
Personality
Macbeth is considered to be a logician and follows all the weaknesses that logicians have such as, (Being private, Insensitive, Absent-minded, Condescending, second guessing himself, broke laws )
Bravery/modesty
Macbeth showed his bravery and modesty throughout the starting of the play and this tried to show that he was doing his part and that it was for the king and nothing else
Blind
Throughout the whole play he did not listen to any of the negative thoughts and just listened to what was too good to be true.
Gullible
Macbeth was tricked throughout many times in the play from his wife and the witches and this led to his overall downfall.
Over-Confident
Throughout the whole second of the half of the play Macbeth becomes over confident and overall leads to his downfall.
Throughout the story Macbeth continually shows traits that create a mix of being a protagonist with parts that make him the Antagonist such as

Being:
-Brave/modest
-Gullible
-Blind
-over-confident
-Illogical
The two points that he had this trait were
when the war was over, he and Banquo were walking off they showed as if it was all in a days work and they were not expecting to get anything out of it.

He also showed his bravery when he was trying to fight off the English army, and he tried against all odds.
He then was corrupted from other and this made him completely different than he was in the beginning.
At the start he listened to the witches even though they should have been doubted to begin with, because of the way they approached him and gave up such treasonous ideas. So when they began with the prophecies Macbeth listened to them full heartedly. He barely even questioned the ideas, as well as not listening to the other half of the prophecies which were the negative ideas towards his future.

He also does it again at the end of the play when goes to the witches and listens to the prophecy that he couldn't be killed by anyone who was woman born but completely disregards the part that was, beware of Macduff which was his overall downfall.
illogical
I find myself to be a mediator because my traits match up with it the best. The traits that fit me the best are.
-Open-minded and flexible
-passionate and energetic
-Dedicated and hard working
-Creative(in a music sense)
-Impractical
-Difficult to get to know
-Too altruistic
-Idealistic

At the start of the play he was tricked into listening to the witches pretty easily and started living to what they said like it was a religion.

He also believed everything his wife said when she was trying to corrupt him into killing Duncan so that he could be king thinking it would be best. He did however forget that paranoia can set in and ruin any plot.
The first time he did this was that when he found out that no one that was woman born could kill him. He decided that he was invincible and he did anything he wanted to. Such as kill Macduff's family because they were part of no prophecy. He just believed he was a god at that point and believed all the good things that the witches had to say.(except the bad parts)


He also was too overconfident when he believed that even the army of 10000 wouldn't be able to kill him because he thought only a god would be able to. So he decided that he would take them all on by himself and he would be able to win.
Macbeth made some very illogical decisions which overall made him paranoid and broke his mind.
At the starting of the play he doesn't think over many of the possibilities of what would happen after the murder and he didn't think over the consequences of his actions.
He was paranoid and second guessed throughout the entire play. He was told by everyone on what to do and didn't think for himself
He also stops listening to Lady Macbeth after she made the whole plan and this led to a disaster and a killing spree that could have been prevented if he took the time to think about what he was doing.
second guessing
Broke laws
absent-minded
Insensitive
