kartavyas are narcissistic pieces of shit (they try to be narcissists but fail). they usually tend to bring themselves in every situation and hype themselves up too much. while their ambition and skill are great qualities, and they are fun to have around, kartavyas can be real bitches sometimes. overall, they are people you can trust.
