    I aim to be assertive and try to be introspective.

    I do tend to be passive aggressive when I am in a shirty mood though

    I'd actually like to know how I come across

    I'm interested in others thoughts. Especially after reading 20 odd pages of PA, A and P communication in a thread about small swimwear.
    You know a smilie that I see used in a passive-aggressive way? This guy--->

    Who would have thought? But yes, I have seen mr smiley used in a totally passive-aggressive way, MANY times.

    As for me, I think I can sometimes be passive-aggressive IRL but since splitting with my ex I have become more assertive. Leaving my very "aggressive communicator" ex husband has been a boost to my self confidence, and as such I am more assertive, rather than passive.

    Yep I've seen the smilie dude used lots in a passive agressive way. Although I use him sometimes when I debating with people, not in a PA way but to show I'm not angry or taking it personally. That I hear their POV and I'm not being b*tchy.

    Very interesting read thankyou.

    IRL I believe I am an assertive communicator. I think I bordered on aggressive during adolescence but that has settled down now that I am totally confident in myself. I think DH might be passive/passive-aggressive due to his family dynamics. I'm trying to coax him out.
