Dear Poll: Are You Passive-Aggressive?

As I learned last week, many of you shy away from confrontation, but since it's impossible to avoid altogether, something tells me that a few of you take the passive-aggressive approach. We all come with our own set of defense mechanisms, and being passive-aggressive is a very common one when you're just too shy or afraid to be direct and honest in a vulnerable situation. As you all know I'm pretty forthcoming, but what about you? Do you consider yourself to be passive-aggressive?

I will only be passive aggressive when Im at work, so I can keep my job. Other wise I really think that type of behavior is for cowards."If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for everything"

I don't like confrontation, so I would say yes...sometimes.

It depends on the situation, and the person I'm dealing with.

sometimes. It depends on the topic and situation.

Not as a rule, no. But I'm sure there have been times when I've inadvertently taken that route.

Absolutely not, and I really look down on passive-aggressive people (no offense). That kind of behavior is for cowards. Such people remind me of Gollum (in LOTR). Either be prepared to face someone, or don't show your aggression at all. Maybe it's because I'm a Leo, but I tend to face people! It is entirely possible to tell someone to their face what's bothering you while still being respectful...but not everybody has the courage to do that.

I was always accused of it by my ex, but I didn't even realize I was doing it. He used to do it a lot too, though. Either way, direct or indirect, we'd always end up fighting...
