You're a total control freak! Let's face it- you're the type of person who craves control. You hate when things are "out of your hands" or up to someone else. In fact, when you can't have control, you look for ways to gain some semblance of power over the situation. Being out of control makes you feel helpless, vulnerable, and totally anxious!
You're A Control Freak!
You definitely crave control! It is very difficult for you to let go of your hold on a situation and let the chips fall where they may. When things aren't in your control, you feel anxious and powerless, as if there is nothing you can do. To gain control, you are known to boss people around or strive to "handle" situations, even when they're not yours to handle.
You Crave Control!
You're not a control freak in the slightest, in fact, you'd much prefer someone else to take the reigns in your life whenever possible! You've learned that nothing is really in anyone's control, we're all just here to go along with the ride. That's why you try not to stress the small stuff or let little things you can't handle get under your skin. Chill and laid back, that's what you are!
