Types of politicians
Weber points out that a politician is a person who aspires to power; to power as a means to achieve other ends or to the same power, to enjoy the feeling of prestige that is conferred.
There are two ways of making politics a profession: you live from politics (the person seeks an end or economic level), or you live for politics, you make your life in an intimate sense; either he simply enjoys the exercise of the power he possesses, or he feeds his equilibrium and his tranquility with the awareness of having given his life meaning by putting it at the service of “something.”

Passion (service or vocation towards something).
Sense of responsibility.
Measure (ability to let reality act on you without losing your recollection and tranquility) .9
