How Do You Define A Controlling Personality? It’s When Someone Needs To Have Those Around Them Behave In Certain Ways- They Like To Control Other People.
For most of us, we have come across situations where someone tells us not to do something. Then, when asked why not, they respond with, “I don’t want you to,” or “That’s not how it’s done.”
Controlling personalities stem from having codependency issues. This means that they rely on their ability to control you so that they can feel safe confident and secure. However, by doing this, they ultimately end up making you feel like you have lost your voice – your independence. As a result, they have you under their thumb and they destroy your self-esteem.
