A Leo can demand respect and expect those around them to behave subserviently.
They can interfere in what others are doing, bark orders, bully, and expect obedience with no questions asked. When they can't control those around them, they become frustrated and throw fiery temper tantrums. A Leo can be materialistic, think only about their wants and needs, and be totally unconcerned about others. They may even go so far as lying or manipulating others to get what they desire. A Leo can hold onto a wrong idea or belief out of stubborn pride. They have little ability for self-reflection and will never admit that someone else could be right or that they've made a mistake.
Leos want to be the best, the brightest, and most beautiful, and when someone outshines them in any way, they can become jealous and competitive. A jealous and competitive Leo won't hesitate to use cunning, lies, and trickery to discredit anyone they see as a rival. A Leo has a super fragile ego, takes everything personally, and can become hurt and angry at the smallest sign of disrespect.
