Act I Bravery, Curiosity, Ambition, Evil temptation
Act II Uncertainty, Manipulated, Paranoid
Act III Paranoid, Dominant
Macbeth's bravery gains him Thane of Cawdor (Something the 3 witches predicted) which leads him to gain ambition of becoming king. (Witches also predicted this) He feels ambition but at the same time unsure, because he is having evil thoughts, "My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical"(Macbeth,I,i,139). (Killing Duncan) Macbeth knows its wrong but wants king.
Act IV Evil doings, Overkill, Escalation
Macbeth's ambition to become king leads him and his wife to put their plan of killing Duncan into action. After Macbeth kills Duncan he feels terrible guilt and paranoia, "I could not say Amen when they did say God bless us". (Macbeth,II,ii,26-27). After the murder Macbeth feels paranoid and that he was watched.
Act V Macbeth's downfall
Macbeth fears that Banquo's prophecy will become true just as his did so he decides to have Banquo and his son murdered. Macbeth's ambition has now surpassed Lady Macbeth's. Banquo's ghost is seen by Macbeth and he says "Thou canst not say I did it never shake Thy gory locks at me" (Macbeth,III,iv,50-51). He is paranoid of what he has done.
Macbeth's acts continue in an evil path. When he discovers Macduff has fled he goes to his castle in Fife and murders his family. "Exit Lady Macduff crying murderer!" (Macbeth,IV,ii,87) His actions are extremely overkill, this shows how his evilness is continuing to grow and he will keep killing. Also he is shows by the witches, all of Banquo's children as royalty which scares him.
Macbeth's downfall was certain to come from the witches prophecy. He was over confident that he could not be defeated until Birnam Wood moved to Dunsinane, and he could not be slain by someone born from woman. Before his death he was a complete tyrant, he did anything he wanted without any punishment, he was tearing scotland apart slowly. Macbeths power ultimately lead to his death.
