Have you ever worked with someone who used intimidation tactics to keep you off balance and to control you? Sometimes we are our own worst enemies, feeling fear when there is no reason. But sometimes, people really are that nasty.

“Lorne wants people to feel insecure,” says an ex–cast member. “It’s the same techniques cults use—they keep you up for hours, they never let you know that you’re okay, and they always make you think that your spot could be taken at any moment by someone else.”
