The peace-at-all-cost people.
ASSERTIVE VS AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOUR
ASSERTIVE BEVAVIOUR: ASSERTIVENESS VS AGGRESSIVENESS - what is the difference between being assertive and being aggressive?
Most people confuse assertiveness with aggression. Aggression is usually or commonly shown by insensitivity. Aggresive people don't give a damn about the impact of their actions or words. They are quick to blame, attack or complain. There is a thin line between aggression ands assertion.
Assertive people express their feelings openly, honestly yet calmly. They are cool-headed and don't suffer from temper tantrums because they know how to put their point accross. They also respect other people's point of views, listen to them though not in agreement, and acknowledge when they think the other perosn has made a good, viable point. An assertive person doesn't impose their opinion or viewpoint on others. They refrain from offering their idea of a solution to other people, rather they help others work out a solution.
