Because I DID Google it after a couple posters on the "bullying"
topic thread said its used a lot and misused and I don't understand
all the long scientific articles I found and I thought posters could
help explain in REAL every day terms.

"Google it" and "Google is your friend" isn't always the best
answer for me.

The problem is that many people claim it's something that it isn't. So, you really are better off not getting a general consensus on a shopping website. Although I'm not saying you shouldn't have asked, I just wouldn't assume that all the answers you get are correct.

My point exactly.  If one wants to be educated, start with reading articles written by credentialed people.

-Victimization - Unable to look at their own part in a situation will turn the tables to become the victim and will behave like one

-Self-Pity - the poor me scenario

-Blaming others for situations rather than being able to take responsibility for your own actions or being able to take an objective view of the situation

 

Three perfect examples that define it right here in this forum.

 

And yes, it IS tossed around too often around here.

I don't believe everything posters say on any thread
is the "final answer" and I doubt most people do
(I don't assume anything either, there's a saying
about why it's not smart to "assume" lol!)
I only wanted opinions and examples from
people.




Thanks.👍

Re: ••• What Does "Passive-Agressive" Really Mean? •••

newzie, you did nothing wrong.

 

Asking people what something means is a great way of finding what THEY mean by using a certain term.

 

What THEY meant doesn't always match up to a clinical or other professional definition, as we have just seen.
