The need of control is inherent to every individual. It expresses on people' s desires and attempts to discover the unknown, predicting uncertain situations and establishing order on their chaotic environment.

  • It will provide guidance to improve individual' s quality of life.
  • It will provide insight on how people could avoid or control risky situations.
  • It will identify efficient strategies that could allow individuals to regain balance and harmony with their environment
