Delusion Of Control

People talk about the Illusion Of Control, but it's usually a Self-Delusion.

See Control, Command and Control, Cargo Cult. Everything Is Under Control. Failure is not an Option.

Darn this is a specific clinical term with a different meaning: Delusion of control: False belief that another person, group of people, or external force controls one's general thoughts, feelings, impulses, or behavior.
