Under-delegation. (I’ll do it myself. The nursing assistant argues with me when I ask her to do something/I always have to do it over).

Refusal to accept assignment of legitimate delegation. (I don’t know how to do that very well/I have too much work already/It’s always me that gets the work; ask someone else/I’m too busy/I won’t be able to do a very good job, but if that’s what you want…)
