Control Freak

Many people call themselves a control freak. Is that a good thing or a bad thing or something in-between?

Maybe it doesn't matter. Maybe what does matter is truly identifying what it really means.

Does it mean you're ensuring that everything goes well, that no detail is left unattended, that you take complete responsibility? If so, I think that sounds pretty good. That control freak will be a welcome addition to any team.

Or does it mean you want to do it your way, that you choose to define success by your own definition, and that you are fiercely independent? If so, that's a different story. That control freak may cost their company and clients a great deal in hassles and anguish.
