    readeth for thineselves the Tempest - the likes of trinculo and stephano soon got their comeuppance for attempting to usurp the throne of the King - well basically any shakespeare tells of the fall of characters who are too ambitious - Antony and Cleopatra is another excellent play - as is 'As You Like It'

    I agree with it. I also agree that ambitious people take advantage to get what they want.

    Nope, totally unambitious. I have no passion for anything and I believe that the advantage is less people can take advantage of me. I want a passion though as its gives people a reason for living but by definition I believe this places a person at a disadvantage- people can manipulate you as a passion can be your weakness e.g if you love someone (thus your passion) that person whom you love can manipulate you.

    I think it depends more on how suggestible they are.
    Surely if they are ambitious, do what they must to get what they want, and know exactly what they want (as I find ambitious people often do) then you can't take advantage of them by making them believe they want something when they don't.

    I'm very ambitious - a lot of people are - but that doesn't make them vulnerable - i would have thought it was the other way round. I can think of many occasions where i've thoughtlessly hurt others to get what i want!
