Observing Personal Control Issues
When observing people having personal control issues, I have seen some with an inordinate need to control other’s actions. These individuals hold others hostage to doing what they want to avoid emotional conflicts. It appears to me to be just the opposite of what one might think. I believe their problem is not superiority, but feelings of inadequacy. Their insecurity in personal relationships causes them to be uncomfortable, to say the least. It appears that the only way for them to be comfortable is if they control every situation. It is not the same thing as having the confidence of having craftsmanship in a particular creative endeavor. This problem is when there are unrealistic expectations, often thinking another will have the power to destroy any good.
