Malcolm displays several characteristics that would make him a fit ruler. First of all, he is very cautious with Macduff - Malcolm is not sure at the beginning of the scene if he can trust Macduff, so he proceeds cautiously. He also displays a love of his country as he mourns over the events that have taken place. And finally, he displays a wisdom, intelligence, and cunning as he 'tricks' Macduff into revealing that he is indeed trustworthy by pretending to be a terrible person full of vice to see what Macduff's response will be.
