Is a very vindictive dictator, he will not let it be until the opponent is finished (but not openly) very passionate; loves to be praised; likes to have followers, but they have to be under his thumb completely; nobody can utter a word against him; a lot of fantasies and fancies about how to get revenge, he plans a long time until he hits back. A lot of cursing. inside, swearing; once he has decided, nobody can stop him – not even he; speech is stinging – slanderous (Verat), can bring down a person openly in public; not concerned about what other people say about him; 


Will not forgive someone; thinks about revenge, but they will not finish the other person off. 


Will slander, insult, bring somebody down in public, but never vindictive; is concerned about his social position; what will people say about me; 



Strong person, who loves consolation (strong Puls); changeability of thermals, every minute he wants the fan on or off, the window open or closed (one of the golden rubrics of Kent); Example: A lady with heart attack in the hospital, was very much perspiring, fan was on – she got Carbo-v – but then blood pressure dropped down – when he went in to see her again, she did not want fan – the husband told, that all the time it goes on like this. She got Camph. and the blood pressure went up. Camph. is a very mild dictator, but doesn’t listen to anyone esp. inside her own house. 


Affected by change of temperature; 


Like a human barometer, agg. by extremes of temperature; rebellious, revolting, hitting back immediately (no vindictiveness) 


Does not express the dictator, I want this whether you like it or not, feels supreme; graceful assertion of her superiority and importance; doesn’t want to argue, just does what she wants. 


Dictator where achievement and success is concerned, not interested in destroying someone, bringing down someone; 


Dictator on the inferiors, soft with superiors (Lach);
