Control Freak?

The Drive to Control

Here's the scoop. Humans have a drive to control their environment.

You and I want to be able to not only (to use a Star Trek-ism), "Seek out new life and boldly go where no man has gone before," (or no one in the Next Generation); but we want to have our phaser banks charged and transporters fired up so we FEEL COMFORTABLE going out looking around and be certain that we can make stuff happen "out there."

Assure me I can have #1 and #2, and I will do almost anything. Assure me that I am in control, and I am almost certain I can do anything. And from the standpoint of evolution, #2 sees that the male can #1 and says, "Even if he's a jerk, I'd rather have #1 than none."


"Nothing happens by accident."

Think about that for a moment.

When people say that, they are really saying:

"When stuff happens, someone is in control."

Randomness vs. Control? Just how much do we have....
