Is there any word that describes a particular personality of people who in the past have been subject to subordination or inferiority and when later they go up the ladder and become slightly powerful treat their subordinates the same way.
Like, who has been micromanaged in their early career and when they become a manager they try to micromanage their team. Even Marilyn Manson has song about this called
Slave Only Dreams To Be King:
Slave never dreams to be free
Slave only dreams to be King
Doormat but that doesn't cut it since it focuses on still being an inferior and it's a little informal. I'm ESL so I might be wrong.
