Discussion: PASSIVE, ASSERTIVE OR AGGRESSIVE? Self examination

1) someone insults or back chats you: You -Get into a big argument with them -Say as little as possible and keep walking. -Hang your head down,your hair shadowing your face, and keep walking. 2) Someone asks you if you can drive an hour for them and pick up some items while they are sleeping: you -Tell them to get stuffed and flip them the finger. -Simply say “no” and go on your business. -Nod silently, maybe give a little grunt in protest, but do it for them anyways. 3) Someone voices an opinion that you don't agree with: you -Argue adamantly that they are wrong, your voice near shouting. -You tell them that is fine, its their opinion, but confidently tell them what you think on the whole subject. -You don't agree with them, but to avoid trouble you just nod your head mutely and return to what you were doing. 4) Your significant other or good friend is preoccupied and distant Do you a) Say nothing but if it continues ask if they are okay b) Tell them you are worried about them and ask if anything is wrong c) Say nothing, they'll snap out of it soon. 5) You are who your are because of the environment you were forced to grow up in. Is this True? 6) Someone cuts in front of you in a line: You -Assume they didn't know you were in line; gently explain that you waiting before them. -Say nothing and do nothing. -Tell them you don't appreciate their behavior, that they need to return to their place. 7)Someone at work is making inappropriate jokes at your expense: You -Say nothing. You don't want to make things worse. -Tell them you don't appreciate the jokes, and start making more neutral jokes yourself to set a different tone. -Make inappropriate jokes at their expense. 8). You are meeting someone for the first time and they show up 20 minutes late. -You say that you really don't like being kept waiting and you think their behavior is rude. -Say nothing. You don't like conflict. -Mention the time, and ask if something happened unexpectedly to make them late. -Say nothing. You went home after waiting fifteen minutes, and are no longer there. 9) You have a friend who is always 15 to 20 minutes late when meeting you. Eventually, you: -Finally blow up at them one day, and then stop making dates with this friend. -Just learn to deal with it so you don't risk any conflict. -Tell them that you value their friendship, but are becoming increasingly frustrated. -Start telling them to meet you 20 minutes early, so they end up "on time" without knowing it. 10) An overly critical relative that you see regularly tends to throw veiled insults at you: -Try to get on that relative's "good side" so you'll be left alone. -Address the comments with, "Wow, that was a little rude, wasn't it?" or avoid this relative. -Get into the practice of pointing out her flaws as well. Fight fire with fire. -Avoid this relative, and be sure the rest of the family knows why. 11) Your partner habitually makes you the butt of jokes, even after you say that it hurts you: -Decide that maybe you do need to develop a thicker skin. -Re-evaluate whether or not this relationship is healthy, and consider getting out. -Start making similar jokes about your partner, matching each veiled insult with one of your own. -Don't bring up the jokes again, but begin doing things that bother your partner to even things up. 12) You go to dinner out; after a very long wait, it arrives cold. You: -Tell the waiter how incompetent you think he is and demand that the food be free. -Tell the waiter that this is unacceptable and ask what they can do to make things right. -Say nothing, but leave a ridiculously small tip -Say nothing, you don't want to risk the server spitting in your food 13) A not so close friend asks to lend a sustantial amount of money. a) Explain that you don't lend money b) Just say no c) Agree reluctantly because you didn't want to upset them and then worry until you got it back.
