What Dr. Roger Hall can say in an interview about: 
The Relationship Between Fear & Control:

Exploring Fear & ContRol

  • Why people are micromanagers. 
  • If you’ve ever had a micromanaging boss, that boss is likely to have been very afraid. 
  • Fear and control are inextricably linked.

  • Fear leads to control or information gathering. 
  • The more I fear something the more I desire to have control. 
  • We see this in how we walk our dogs and how we interact with our children our coworkers and our families. 
  • Why we have leashes for our dogs.  
  • When I don’t have control, I switch to “information gathering.” 
  • We see this in behavior on railroad platforms and television watching.  
  • Why people watch the weather channel. 
  • Looking down the track. What people do while waiting for the train. 
  • Control—you will never trust until you do the terrifying thing and let go of the leash.

 Solution

    1.  Understanding what a controlling person fears will help you to act to reduce their fear.   
    2. If you are a controlling person, knowing what you fear will be only the first step in becoming less controlling.
