Every human had the thought of “Wouldn't it be awesome if I become a super-deity-god-omnipotent-king-hyperintelligent—”. Or “The role of an indomitable and enigmatic protector is hella damn cool!”. Or perhaps “The whole world shall bow before my endless army!”.
Such mindsets would lead to interesting events at the cost of their social lives.
