Has anyone ever called you a “Control Freak?”
If so, what exactly does that phrase mean and how did you respond when the label was first attached?
Those who don’t know me have accused me of being a “Control Freak” and
I always feel offended and misunderstood when that phrase is barbed at
Is a Control Freak a Perfectionist?
Are you a Control Freak if you enjoy getting the details right and
providing form and creating function and marking smoothness in
operating effortlessly through life?
Are you a Control Freak if you have Plan B, Plan C and Plan D to backup
Are you a Control Freak if you innately know the best way to do
something in the shortest amount of time?
Are you a Control Freak if you ask for everyone’s opinion and then
choose the best one?
Are you a Control Freak if you prefer to sit in a restaurant with your
back to the wall and your eyes pointed on the door?
Are you a Control Freak for demanding the same quality and
consideration in work habit and ethics that you provide without anyone
demanding it from you?
Are you a Control Freak if you refuse to take an online “Are You a
Control Freak?” test because you know those web exams are a setup and
are shallow and pithy and created to accuse and finger point you over
to self-help books on sale and online classes in stress reduction
offered at a discount?
It is the brand of the “Control Freak” to reject that label and prefer
“Watchdog of Excellence” instead?
