  1. My options: obsession with some idea and hope to realize this idea on a massive scale. The fear of someone else’s influence and the desire to control everything that is possible. OBIDA and the desire to prove their own high value to everyone (and yourself) – Vasily Kolpakov wrote very well about this. In general, “I will show you all !!!”. The lack of worthy opposition (not sure, however, that this is “driven”, rather, “allows”).

  2. Such a person is not driven by ideas, but corny congenital instincts. In this case, this is the instinct of a domination that refers to social instincts, which is a component of our survival. A person following this instinct – endlessly fights for resources, the higher the hierarchy in society is protected. The higher the hierarchy in society, the more resources. Possession of the best man or woman to create healthy offspring, more food, comfort and so on. From the point of view of nature, this is correct, from the point of view of nature, this is what helps the species survive. Of course, at this stage in the development of our society, this instinct does more harm than benefits. He all has congenital and is activated at the time of puberty, both in women and in men. If a person was crushed by his significant adults before puberty, he was constantly accused, rejected, and so on, he will not be able to translate this instinct either at all or fully, he will suppress him. But those who were loved, those who were given absolutely everything, those who have no fears, at the time of puberty begin to follow this instinct and live in the future according to its rules. They begin to live according to these rules at that moment if we managed to reach a dominant position in the company in which they are. But if he loses, he will no longer use this from the word at all.

  4. I will give only one example, not so long in time. One prominent party figure (candidate for the member of the Politburo, 1 Secretary of the MGK of the CPSU) for drunken grimaces and jumps, for obscurity was deprived of all party posts and, as a rule, status, honor, privileges, etc. Having enlisted the support and finances of the most powerful power of the world, buying the generals of power structures, the media, the elite, etc. I went to destroy everything * hated Soviet * (which he served for a long time and devotedly). What moved them? Evil revenge in relation to their former one -partyists, to prove their insignificance and worthlessness (although he himself was the same insignificance). Only later many realized that the country, the state, people were for this *figure *by expenditure material to achieve base goals and desires.

  5. A lot of things can move in different particular cases. For example, in the game – a desire to experience your strength. But if superiority and dominance are the highest meaning, then behind this is a thorough faith like Gnostic – faith in doom for complete destruction, excluding the possibility of “eternal life”. From such faith, the desire follows at any cost to snatch for yourself more all kinds of benefits to the end inevitable in this faith.

  6. From my experience, such a person is driven by the feeling that he, this person, considers himself more cunning than others. And since he is more cunning, in his head the development of fraudulent schemes for achieving certain goals, even, perhaps, those that he does not need. And violence. Women strive for dominance and authorities, and they, women, push husbands to such affairs. To be behind them as a stone wall. There are cases when men pushing their wives to perform fraud. Vino all the feeling that you are more cunning than others. That is, this is a kind of error, which, incidentally, is considered a sin, but nevertheless it can bring tangible results. A man who does not have a sense of cunning, he does not strive for superiority and dominance. It just lives what is, correctly distributing his efforts.

  7. If a person in life strives for superiority and dominance, and without it feels uncomfortable for various reasons, then this is one of several options.
    1. Somewhere in childhood, he had a painful experience of communicating with a person who dominated him or a close relative. Usually mom. And this person was the only one who felt in this situation … Read more
