How do Lady Macbeth‟s greeting to her husband and her conversation with him (I.v.52-71) demonstrate further the differences in their characters?

L. Macbeth is all over the idea of becomming queen. She gets right to the point as soon as she sees him.
Great Glamis, worthy Cawdor,
Greater than both, by the all-hail hereafter,
Thy letters have transported me beyond
This ignorant present, and I feel now
The future in the instant.
Macbeth ,however, is still lost in anxiety. He likes the idea of becoming King but is also terrified of it. All he can stammer out is, My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight.
