Passive behaviour

Passive behaviour is characterized by letting others push you around and not standing up for your own thoughts and feelings. People with passive behaviour are typically afraid of conflict and social rejection. The passive individual frequently keeps their personal opinions, feelings and desires to themselves, and can feel very frustrated and angry inside.

Some characteristics of passive behaviour are:

  • Not standing up for your own rights.
  • Thinking other people’s needs and rights are more important than your own.
  • A tendency to think that your own ideas are worthless.
  • Feeling anxious about work, relationships, and family.
  • Constantly apologizing for your own behaviour.
  • Frequent bouts of low self-esteem.
