A control freak is a person who wants to be in a position of control all the time. They want to be aware of everything that’s going on around them, and they want to have control over it in some way or the other.
The control freak isn’t easy to recognize yourself, because it’s very well camouflaged by another personality trait, perfectionism.It sucks to be a control freak, because it always leaves you frustrated and annoyed, and it annoys and stifles everyone around you too. But it’s easy to change once you see the signs and correct yourself.

# You have to see it to believe it. You don’t trust the judgment of others, even if it’s someone you trust.
