Default Are you assertive?

I'm bored, sorry in advance.

I always like this topic... are you assertive, or are you non-confrontational?

I'm definitely non-confrontational, I absolutely hate having to broach touchy subjects or tell people off. I'm a manager and it is really tough for me to walk up to someone and tell them something negative. I won't send food back if it's wrong. I guess I'm very much a people pleaser and I don't like feeling like I asked a stupid question or that people are thinking badly of me. I don't think I've ever been in a screaming match with anyone, and I definitely let people take advantage of me sometimes because I don't like telling them otherwise. I've gotten a bit better than I used to be though.

I'm way more assertive and a little scrappy on the internet though. I guess because I have time to think over the situation and pick my words.

Non-confrontational, totally.

I hate confrontation, especially in real life.

There is not an assertive bone in my body.

It's one thing that always gets mentioned in my reviews at work, I'm getting "better" but could still improve apparently, but I just don't have it in me!
And if all of it is for naught, well at least I took a shot

I'm vere non-confrontational. I can't tell anyone off on anything, or tell someone when I'm mad at them, esp. in real life.
The only problem is, that when someone says something to me, I usually don't say anything. And then once I'm alone, I think about what they say, and I get really angry but of course I can't tell them.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.
