1st: I didn't check, if someone already noted it.
2nd: Presence and Majesty (in later Vampire Requiem) both have as many dialogue options as do dominate or dementation. In my opinion it happened like this: Some official was rejected by a female or male artist (Toreador), henceforth a raging spite and humiliated ego malfunction made the official cripple Presence for all the world.
Or maybe he was the personal punching-bag of some Brujah???
3rd: Academics ARE compulsive about pretending all emotion to be weak and flawed, thereby posturing supreme where in truth their own crippled and twisted emotions drive them on anyway.
Dominate focuses thought, Presence focuses Emotion and Central Nervous System. On high levels presence is actually more efficient, yet Dominate is easier to use among mortals.
