What are these desires, and does the oligarch not have them, or does he just suppress them? If the latter, then how does he do it?

Option 1:

Socrates says the oligarchic soul: “by being a thrifty worker, who satisfies only his necessary appetites, makes no other expenditures, and enslaves his other desires as vain”(554a). That is, because “what is valued is always practiced, and what isn’t valued is neglected”(551a), and because what the oligarch values is wealth, there are certain things he simply won’t do, there are certain desires he simply won’t satisfy. What are these desires, and does the oligarch not have them, or does he just suppress them? If the latter, then how does he do it? Finally, how is the democratic soul different, that is, what does the democratic soul value and what does this value allow the democratic soul to do that the oligarchic (and timocratic and aristocratic) simply won’t do? Explain your answer.
