How do you deal with passive aggressive individuals?
We all have different personality types.
Some of us are passive, some are assertive, some aggressive, some are passive aggressive.
And at any given time, we may display one or more of these personality traits based on the situation at hand.
I am interested in experiences you might have had or are having with individuals who specifically display a passive aggressive personality.
How do you deal with them at work?
How do you handle them within the family circle?
If you yourself are a passive aggressive person, could you shed light into why you choose to act this way? And also, what kind of people are you the most comfortable around?
Any and all comments are welcomed. I am hoping to learn more about this type of personality so I can better communicate with these individuals.
Closing Statement from Mary M.
Thank you to all who participated in this most wonderful conversation on passive aggressive personalities.
Hopefully all who participated walked away knowing a little bit more about themselves and others.
We cannot change others, but we can certainly change ourselves.
It is in this light, that I started this conversation. My goal was to understand why passive aggressive individuals acted the way they do, so that I can better understand how to treat them and get along with them........your answers shed alot of light into my dilemna.....I am still reading and learning.
