In psychology-related slang, control freak is a derogatory term for a person who attempts to dictate how everything around them is done. The phrase was first used in the late 1960s — an era when great stress was laid on the principle of ‘doing one’s own thing’ and letting others do the same.
I visited several web sites to learn the true meaning of the term ‘Control Freak’ and took several on-line quizzes to see if I am truly a control freak. Here are those results:
Quiz 1 Result: Full Blown Control Freak.
Quiz 2 Result: You probably have some control issues.
Quiz 3 Result: You are 58% control freak! That makes you Not a Control Freak! Like most people, you have a certain need for control, but you’re definitely no freak. Make sure the controlling urges don’t overtake you, so you remain an enjoyable person to be around.
I changed my mind: Control Freak – I Admin It – That May Be Me!
I really do not have a need to control everything and everyone. Yes, there are times I like to have things, situations, etc. my way.

A control freak is a person who wants to be in a position of control all the time. They want to be aware of everything that’s going on around them, and they want to have control over it in some way or the other.
