You are somewhat bossy. Like most people, you enjoy getting your way every now and again. When you give advice you like to be considered and heard, even if it's not taken. You may try to influence your friends and family, but you never tell them what to do.
You are slightly pushy. While you're not necessarily bossy, you like to talk others into seeing your way as the right way. You often like to be in control of choosing activities and making decisions. When you can't be in control, you at least like to be heard.
You're bossy! It's often your way or the highway. Your friends love you for your strong opinions and values. You like to express your thoughts and tell others what they should be doing. Especially those who seem to be lacking direction.
You are a bit of a control freak. it can be a bit stressful when life is completely out of your control. But don't worry, we all hate the feeling of not being the captain of our own ship. But make sure to relax and let others take the lead every once and awhile.
