This activity is certainly thought-provoking, forcing students to travel beyond surface-value and to consider connotation as well.
Macbeth-- Ambitious, guilty, over-confident
Lady Macbeth-- Cunning, supportive, deranged.
Duncan-- trusting, legitimate, murdered
Witches-- prophetic, deceitful, unnatural
MacDuff-mournful, angry, victorious
I would describe Macbeth as immature, impulsive, and greedy. I would also use those words to describe has wife, but Lady Macbeth is also manipulative and cunning, and ruthless. Duncan is naive and of course, royal. All of them are doomed.
