They think that they have to be insistent that things go the way they want. They fear that things will go wrong if it is not done their way. They think they know the best about what has to be done and how it has to be done. This comes from a situation in the past, often in childhood, where they adapted to others and things went wrong.
This attitude can make them domineering, bossy and even tyrannical; at least that is how others easily can see them. This is even more so in situations where they are doing things for others, where they are caring for people or where they are a parent for children. There they are deciding for others, not only for themselves. It is difficult for them to imagine that sometimes it is better to let things go wrong, that others may need the mistakes as an experience. They cannot easily see that the autonomy of others is an important issue as such and that it is better to let things go for others the way they want.
They can become bossy, manipulating, controlling, dictatorial, tyrannical, wanting things to go their way for fear that they will otherwise go wrong. They can behave like a king, like an overprotective mother. They are convinced that their perceptions and opinions are correct and assume the right to force them on others. They have to become insistent because they also have an inherent tendency to adapt to others.
They feel misunderstood, unappreciated, unloved. They feel that others do not see their good intentions and clear visions. They would like to scream at others but they have learned as a child that does not help.
