the-phrase-crab-mentality-is-used-to-describe

The phrase ‘crab mentality’ is used to describe the ‘if I can’t have it, neither can you’ mindset. The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs that could easily get out, but they ensure their own demise by competitively clawing at each other- like spiteful humans trying to bring down those who are more successful by diminishing their importance.
