The comments left on this article about passive aggressive people were perhaps more interesting to me than the article.
You can read it here:
I think it’s been so many years that I have gallows humor about this at times. I think I’ll watch Passive Aggressive Man on youtube again just to keep it real.
One thing that stands out to me is how people usually confuse any passive aggressive behavior (which any one can have at particular times) with a person who’s hardwired and driven. Wanting to avoid a certain conflict and avoiding it passive aggressively is not that uncommon. Being hostile and resentful and repetitively undermining someone covertly is very different. Scott Wetzler called it ‘sugar coated hostility’. About right.
