Am I Controlling In My Relationship? Quiz

Do you ever question “Am I controlling?” when those butterflies in your stomach morph into unsettling claws of possessiveness? Do you find yourself giving into your overactive jealousy and feeling guilty about it at the same time?

Sometimes, even the kindest intentions pave the path to controlling behaviors. You might not mean any harm but it might cause your partner to feel suffocated nonetheless. Remember, acknowledging controlling tendencies isn’t about shame, but about growth. 

This 11-question quiz, designed by a relationship counselor with a Master’s in Psychology, delves into the murky waters of control in relationships. Take the plunge, answer honestly, because sometimes, recognizing controlling behavior is the first step towards a healthier, happier connection. Let’s see if your actions whisper “concern” or scream “controlling personality!”
