A "control freak" lives a very regulated life and takes decisions based on deep evaluation.
On the other hand, so called "normal people" are wanton and foolhardy, and rely mostly on gut feeling.
 
Who then is the "freak", the former or the latter ?  :sherlock:

Everyone is a freak, it is only a matter of degrees.

 

A control freak is more likely to be driven to madness, I think, because there is so much that is beyond the human ability to control.

 

In my opinion, it is best to accept the reasonable limits of control and have contingencies for when control fails.

Hmmm.... Madness could result from overthinking, which results iin "endogenous depression"....... :sherlock:
