When put under time pressure, people tend to act more like themselves: selfish people tend to act more selfishly than usual, while pro-social people behave even more pro-socially.
But time pressure can also improve decision-making because it forces people to make tough decisions.

People who consistently undermine or cause harm to a partner (whether intentionally or not) often have a reason for their behavior, even if it’s subconscious.
Maybe they were in a toxic relationship, either romantically or as a child. Maybe they didn’t have the most supportive, loving upbringing. They could have been bullied in school. They could be suffering from an undiagnosed mental health disorder.
