I think I just penned a word: hypocritic

It describes those controlling people who are never happy with what you do, like the people in Luke 7 who criticize if you do or if you don't, if you dance or if you don't dance, if you eat or if you don't eat, because you're not meeting their own personal expectations.
HCSB Luke 7:31 “To what then should I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to each other:
We played the flute for you,
but you didn’t dance;
we sang a lament,
but you didn’t weep!
33 For John the Baptist did not come eating bread or drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon!’ 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ 35 Yet wisdom is vindicated by all her children.”

Not sure that works: the hypo- prefix indicates not enough of something. I am hypoglycemic, which means my blood sugar is too low. Now I'm also diagnosed as hypertensive, which means my blood pressure is too high. So, that would seem to mean you need the word "hypercritic" (which would likely get confused with "hypocrit"), too much of a critic, which is probably already covered with the word "hypercritical" an adjective meaning too critical. So, now you're the one turning an adjective into a noun.
