i think people that like to control others is because they are cowards,insecure, they feel that by controling others they have a right to authority they get the feeling that they can do whatever they want but in reality they are scared little kids inside cowarding and hiding from the truth
I don't know but have you noticed that those people who want to control others are the very people who can't even control themselves. It must give them some sense of power or something.
why do some people like to ride bicycles or eat sushi? why do people like the color blue or rock and roll music? why are some shy and some outgoing?<br />
every person has different motivation for the things that they do and different reasons for being the person they are. <br />
that isn't the kind of question you can give a blanket answer to that will cover everyone.
THEIRE INSECURE, CONTROL FREAKS>WHO FEEL POWER OVER OTHERS GIVES THEM SELF WORTH
It is a game of energy for them, because they cannot stand the idea of uncertainty. When they feel powerless and separated from their own connection to any spirituality, to control another soothes them, they get a sense of their place and receive energy from others? Is it because they have been damaged and in their minds they need to do this, or there will be unbearable chaos, they will disappear, not have anything? They seem to be stuck in a battle, out of place and time, and have no confidence they will survive without suppressing those around them. Sound like a sad neglected child? One with no sense of self or spirituality?
insecurity and fear..fearful people most likely hid behind insecurity
Because some people cannot control themselves,so they control others......
Because they suck!
It depends on the person, Everyone has their reasons!! But I sure do not like anyone to control me, we'd have a serious problem.
It's can be more fun than checkers or chess.
Just part of humans being humans, whatever psychological explanations you come up with. Probably a survival strategy from our earliest evolution -- if you're in control you tend to get the best of things.
