Pride and Prejudice

Why does Lady Catherine de Borough "condescend" to spend so much time with those she considers beneath her?

This question confused me and I cannot find the answer anywhere.

The Lady condescends because she believes herself too good for those around her because of her wealth and social position; she enjoys lording it over them....... it makes her feel superior.
