How to Tell if a Group is High-Control?

Open Minds FoundationHow to Tell if a Group is High-Control?

“Are you concerned about a group that you or someone you know belongs to? Do you wonder if the group has high-control or manipulative elements? We are pleased to present an adapted and translated version of this Dutch questionnaire created by … Frances Peters.”
“[This] anonymous, informative … survey gives immediate, helpful results, based on the five characteristics of high-control groups:
  • Peer pressure and control
  • Dependency on the leadership
  • Separation from normal society
  • Use of harassment
  • Loss of identity
Even if you aren’t part of a high-control group, feel free to take the questionnaire to rate the level of control in your club, church or other organization, or to rate the levels of control of a group you have left.
