Control Jody is very in coNtrol and likes to be im charge especially in his marrige with janie

"They bowed down to him rather, because he was all of these things, and then again he was all of these things because the town bowed down." (50) This relates to Jody in taking charge because the towns people bow down at his command. They are scared of him already because he already kicked a man out of town.

"You kin feel a switch in his hand when he's talkin' to yuh," (49) The towns folk were gossiping about the way he talks and how they feel like they are going to be hit by just the tone of his voice. (Dominance and coNtrol in his voice)

"Whut make her keep her hair tied up lak some ole' oman round de store?" (49) this shows that he doesn't like men staring at Janie's long hair. So he forces her to wrap it up, but he continues to show her off and shower her with expensive gifts.
