Controlling Behaviors

Controlling behaviors are actions in which an individual likes or 'needs' to be in charge and manage the actions of another person or group. They are comfortable at supervisory and dominating behaviors. Although controlling behavior is not necessarily bad (they can be beneficial in business, the military, or leadership roles) it is often used in a negative manner. Controlling behaviors are typical in abusive relationships in which one individual likes to be entirely dominant to their partner and manage their actions and behaviors.
