Does power reveal people’s true colors?

Not necessarily. People with power do show their true colors when no other factors are affecting them.

Overall it’s more accurate to say that power makes people behave in line with whatever influences easily come to their mind — whether that’s their true desires, their habits or the context they’re in.

My guess is that the distinction here is that people without power have to consider whether their feelings are appropriate so as to not rock the boat. Powerful people don’t need to filter, they just react to whatever is top of mind.
