I do agree with the dyadic power theory the theory that people with only moderate power are most likely to use controlling communication. Power becomes limited in a relationship an individual can no longer assume that they will get there way. As a result they feel more need to take control and influence to make themselves noticeable. People with high power feel little need to display their power that is why they do not need to display it. In an experiment it was explained that each gender had a different idea of power. For example, a male did not consider power to be correlated with behavioral dominance. Overall, I agree with the theory because for an individual to feel safe they must feel in a controlled environment where they feel comfortable somewhere where they can take control or influence.
