It appears that passionate people leave no room for the gentler feelings of others.
Over-active people don’t leave others with anything to do.
Those who speak too much don’t leave others a chance to speak.
Super-courageous people scare other people.
If passion, action, and courage denote rājasa, then these often lead to the suppression or elimination of these in others making them look, behave or feel like apathetic, inactive and cowardly people.
This idea needs refining, but I wanted to jot it down today.
