The presence of negative thoughts about other people indicates pride, the vanity
mode of which reflects a sense of superiority, and the hate mode originates
destructive comments about them.
In the hate mode I seek freedom from social restraints ; I negate the value
of social concepts and responsibilities since I value only my own independence.
I prefer to be left alone ; if I am not, then I daydream of violence. I belittle
the achievements of others. I see my past life as a dreary life, a life of obeying
rules and regulations, a life of obeying other people.
In the vanity mode I judge all issues in black and white terms, I have no moderation,
no flexibility and no toleration to opposing views. I am dogmatic. My views
cannot be wrong.
