A lot of people mistake dominance for happiness thinking that, if they impose their will on others, they'll feel more in control inside or appear more powerful. This type of behavior comes from a deep feeling of insecurity which causes a need to control others so that, hopefully, they won't see how afraid you are. The paradox is that dominant behavior doesn't make you happy, it just causes the people around you to fear you and not get as close as they might otherwise. You'll be much happier if you let other people think freely and make decisions for themselves.
