Have you ever met a person that is always in control and sure of themselves? These people often have the greatest amount of repressed doubt. They overcompensate with their beliefs and rules to cover for their self-doubt. Right and wrong are absolutes with little room for the shades of grey in-between. Othello personifies this sort of person. It takes very little to stir the doubt they can obsessively harbour. There are many people like that in today's society. People in positions of great political power that are in the news a lot are examples of this.
