Aggressive passive behaviour was first defined by Colonel William Menninger during World War II in the context of men`s response to military compliance. Menninger described soldiers who were not overtly provocative, but their civil disobedience (what he called „aggressiveness“) „by passive measures such as pouting, stubbornness, hesitation, inefficiency and passive obstructionism“ because of what Menninger considered „immaturity“ and a reaction to „routine military stress.“ [12] If he does it a third time, I will be wary. I`ve said twice before that this particular thing hurts my feelings. Maybe it`s intentional. The alternative to passive agreement is to act immediately or convince your target audience to participate in a particular behavior. Many passive chords can become action topics as soon as you tell your audience what behaviour they should adopt (for example. B, sign a petition, call a senator, vote). While it is much easier to get passive consensus than to get people to do something, you should always try to get your audience to act and do it quickly. One of the most common mistakes that speakers make is to force people to behave in the future.

The longer it takes for people to participate in the action you want, the more likely your audience is to participate in this behaviour. Aggressive passive behaviour is characterized by a pattern of passive hostility and the prevention of direct communication. [1] [2] Inaction, in which there is something ordinary in society, is a typical passive-aggressive strategy (appearing late for functions, silent when an answer is expected). [2] Such behaviour is sometimes disputed by employees, causing anger or confusion. People who are the recipients of passive-aggressive behaviour may be afraid because of the discrepancy between what they perceive and what the offender says. [3] Aggressive passive behaviour is a model for indirectly expressing negative feelings rather than addressing them openly. There is a separation between what a passive-aggressive person says and what he or she does. I think one of the main reasons for the PA`s behaviour is to get the other to behave in a desired way instead of just hurting the feeling. The latter (the feeling of injury through treatment pa, behavior) is to train the other person to his own desired behavior.

PA no one sees the other being as the same being she has to choose from. If they do not want to behave like the person in the AP wants to behave, the PA`s behaviour (intimidating, manipulating) will force the other person to behave. While much of what you are saying here is valuable, I have the impression that you are very simplistic in your analysis, why someone is acting passively and aggressively and what can be done about it. In my experience, someone can use that tactic because they have a deep anger that they cannot recognize. (i.e. the underlying cause is neither envy, jealousy, nor a personality disorder that are the reasons you provide.) This anger can be justified and justified and must be addressed. The person may be passively aggressive because his or her attempts to express their own needs or anger have not been heard. The thing I remember is when your boss tells you it`s „very good“ but „not as good as… Is not necessarily passively aggressive, but just wants you to improve and encourage yourself at the same time! For „very good“ and „not good“ in the same sentence, you said that he is passive-aggressive, whereas in „reality“ he only tries to encourage and improve him, while they cite that it can be done and gives the example of another employee; Your boss is his job! Maybe he didn`t have the perfect words and he didn`t want to hurt you at all!? Suppose you sit with him and tell him how you feel (he`s your boss, he`s being listened to correctly about your concerns?), you tell him that `you think` that what he said was `passively aggressive`.
