Passive-aggressive behavior refers to passive, sometimes obstructionist resistance to authoritative instructions in interpersonal or occupational situations. Sometimes a method of dealing with stress or frustration, it results in the person attacking other people in subtle, indirect, and seemingly passive ways.

If anything is going to convince a smoker to quit, its a judgmental, passive-aggressive, coughing billboard. At least, thats the ostensible premise of a new campaign from Swedish pharmacy Apoteket Hjärtat and agency Åkestam Holst. The digital poster uses outdoor smoke detectors to identify any nearby smokers and shame them by sending the man on the screen into a hacking fit, according to a case study video promoting the ad.
Threatening to kill someone (or their mother) is physical abuse. He is abusive and more. Definitely in the class of personality disorder, as you said, most likely borderline, which is often comorbid with schizotypal or schizoid, or sadistic pd; likely this man had an unloving parent and/or abusive childhood. If his personaliy is odd (eccentric, peculiar) its Cluster A; paranoid, schizoid or schizotypal (2 subtypes; 1. Insipid: includes schizoid, depressive, dependent features or 2. Timorous: includes avoidant, negativistic (passive-aggressive) features.. If its dramatic/emotional its Cluster B; antisocial, borderline, histrionic, or narcissistic. if anxiety/fearful its Cluster C; avoidant, dependent, or obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (not the same as obsessive compulsive disorder). Unspecified pds are the Depressive, passive-aggressive (negativistic), sadistic and self-defeating.. The money thing could be a control thing, another way to manipulate the family and stability ...
Weve posted about silly Wi-Fi names before on Neatorama (my favorite is "Get Off My LAN!" posted by Neatoramanaut Muzition), but the subject keeps on coming back probably because its ultimately about human conflict. Our tendency of avoiding confrontation with neighbors have led to some very passive aggressive Wi-Fi names, as this article by Tom Heyden of BBC News Magazine explains: Most wireless networks now come with secure settings as default. But "Go Away Dont Steal My Broadband"...
When youre dealing with a passive aggressive spouse, minor tasks like doing the chores can be a pain -and a serious strain on your marriage.
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We present a unified view for online classification, regression, and uniclass problems. This view leads to a single algorithmic framework for the three problems. We prove worst case loss bounds for various algorithms for both the realizable case and the non-realizable case. A conversion of our main online algorithm to the setting of batch learning is also discussed. The end result is new algorithms and accompanying loss bounds for the hinge loss.
Like Albert Bernstein, author of Emotional Vampires: Dealing With People Who Drain You Dry, Simon is a therapist and uses cases as illustrative examples, setting them up in the first part of the book and then using them to illustrate various points later in the book. Simon adds a useful extra dimension to what Bernstein has to say, not least because he shows the same unsentimental practicality, he carefully discusses the role of covert-aggression with other personality disorders (such as passive-aggressive, obsessive-compulsive, narcissist, anti-social [pp 30ff]) and he agrees with Bernstein that mild personality disorders have become more common, noting that therapists are increasingly using cognitive-behavioural therapies to diagnose and treat such (p.xii ...
Having a Ph.D. in chemistry from Columbia (followed by 3 years at Harvard in Boston, which finally turned me into a real New Yorker for life), it was when I finally looked into Global Warming and found it to be utterly junk science...that was my too late to turn back from expulsion from Paradise moment, when I awfully realized that whole passive-aggressive subcultures existed, ones that wanted to, like individuals with narcissistic (parasitic) personality disorders, lure entire countries into their fold, just like happens in office politics or marriages, in which a Honeymoon phase hooks you, but then their sadistic back-stabbing claws jut out, after you have invested your life in them, and yet you keep forgiving them again and again until it becomes too obvious for them to hide, so you discipline them, so they scatter their efforts, by which I mean randomize them, and it becomes death by a thousand cuts, each individual pinprick being like a single mosquito bite on a camping trip, but ...
I will attempt to foist this off on Jeremy, as I find it horribly difficult to disappoint anyone and find myself trying to come up with reasons why we need three respite care workers instead of just one so I dont have to tell anybody that they lost to someone else. I mean, when you think about it, the respite care workers who made it as far as the interview process are all more than qualified to take care of Connor, so it becomes a personality contest, and this is awkward for me. Jer is much better at using the word no than I am. I think its my Southern upbringing that makes that word such a hard one to say. While I learned that it is perfectly acceptable to say horrible things about a person as long as it is prefaced with bless their heart, and I can guilt-trip with the best of them, theres no passive-aggressive way to tell someone they didnt get a job-- at least not that I can think of. I may be out of practice, as living in the Pacific Northwest has forced me to set aside many of my ...
Manners exist to keep us from getting into fist fights every time more than one person hangs out in the same space for a period of time. In the office, where you dont get to choose the people you spend time with, manners are more important than anywhere else. Too bad some of your co-workers seem to have missed the memo on office etiquette.. We would not suggest printing out the following and hanging it in the breakroom (as youll see, in the first rule, below). But, if your team is pondering why people seem to be getting on each others last nerves these days, it might be worth it to mention the following workplace dos and donts as a guide.. 1. Your mother doesnt work here!. Dont: be passive-aggressive.. Kitchen notes, vaguely accusatory emails, muttering under your breath … however you convey it, passive-aggression is not the way to communicate effectively with your co-workers. Yes, they should clean up their mugs and be on time for meetings and hold the elevator door; no, you ...
The two stared on One Life to Live as a happy couple, but they dont seem to be as happy off screen. Perhaps if Farah can whip up a long-lost kid they had when they were teenagers, theyd be set. Anyway, they didnt get much screen time on Dirty Soap, but in the time they did JP did a perfect impression of a guy perfecting his passive-aggressive streak. It was almost like he literally did not want to move to L.A., and was expressing it by finding something wrong with every place they toured. My guess is that they could have toured Bill Gates house and JP would have wondered, Whats with all the piles of money? Umm, fire hazard, much ...
Hasbara is an Hebrew word defined as explanation. The purpose of Hasbara is to explain and educate western people about the Israeli mission. Hasbara can take many forms, adverts, websites, comments on blogs, letter writing, protests and so on. For a fuller idea of the depth of Hasbara check this tool-kit from the We Believe in Israel Website. (made by BICOM). The difference between propaganda and hasbara? I would say Hasbara is more of a soft sell at first, it seeks to inform, influence and educate the ignorant to the Israeli cause. The narrative of Hasbara has a victimized quality underpinning it, a very passive-aggressive approach, Israel is always defending not attacking. They play the mis-understood victim and invite their critics to attack them. The sub-current being that Israels message is not understood. Israel views that the reason for this is either lack of education or stupidity. So the Hasbara agents explain until they realise that they are getting nowhere and then respond with ...
The Ottawa Citizen waxes indignant about a recent Readers Digest feature that ranked Ottawa the least polite city in Canada, a ranking that I myself would find hard to disagree with. Indeed, I heartily endorse the assessment: Ive long felt that Ottawa is a cesspool of passive-aggressive public snottiness, derived, I suspect, from the critical mass of so much latent tension from so many unhappy public servants.. The comments on the Citizen piece are instructive, split between the people whove moved to Ottawa and, like myself, cannot get over how rude the people are here, and the lifelong Ottawans who blame the rudeness on all the provincials and immigrants whove moved here in the last 10-15 years.. You know which side Im on: Ive lived in too many places where people were nicer in public to random strangers, whereas in Ottawa Ive been nearly run over a half-dozen times, physically assaulted on a bus, and even gotten into a road-rage incident while on a bicycle. The rudeness is most manifest ...
It is the on-campus outreach team that brought a model dirty kitchen - an everyday situation facing most people living with roommates - to the Davis Fuels Walkway.. Student actors from the CARE lab invite students, staff, and faculty walking by to enter a makeshift home and ask participants to help them find a particular item among the mess. The participants wade through the chaos to find an innocuous item.. The CARE member playing the role of the roommate then asks the participant to write down what they would say to the fictitious roommate if they had to come home to that mess each day. Tensions are usually high and the participant typically scrawls a passive-aggressive message chastising the untidy person; giving little thought to how their message could contribute to either solving or further complicating the problem.. Law notes that unfortunately, many people struggle with how to respond to difficult situations and react with aggression, rather than with an aim to understand.. These ...
I noticed that each time I coughed, the elderly lady sitting in front of me moved her program to her left ear. The first time, I thought it was a coincidence. Then she did it again and again. Soon, she wasnt moving the program from her ear. This passive-aggressive act made me so intensely uncomfortable that I apologized to my friend and left before the program was over. (Of course, that meant climbing over a dozen legs and then hopping over a chair to make my escape ...
Instead, passive-aggressive driving is encouraged. Rewarded.. The left lane hog is immune from tickets. The few non-fluoridated drivers left out there who try to pass him - theyre in the gunsights of every cop.. The glaucomic senile citizen who can see shapes is not impaired. But theyll crucify the adroit wheelman whose car handling cant be faulted but who was found to have a trace amount of alcohol in his system.. Or who speeds.. Two lanes, a car in either lane. The light goes green - and a slow-motion race to the next light commences. No one else can get around the rolling roadblock without being aggressive. A snappy - and safe - passing maneuver momentarily over the double yellow is an outrage of genocidal proportions. Eyes bug out, horns honk, and high beams flash.. The penalty for not being sufficiently passive.. I try sometimes to set an example. Ill pass in the left lane, then briskly move back into the right lane. I look in my rearview to see whether this has made any impression ...
Obviously this particular get over it method of diabetes management is beyond my scope of comprehension, so I decided to implement a more passive-aggressive approach toward my pancreas by starting on the Dexcom G4 Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM). Instead of making me prick my finger or forearm several many times a day to check my glucose levels, my CGM enables me to weekly insert a (rather bulky) sensor into my abdomen and then passively glance at the number and trend line displayed on my i-pod sized display screen. Letting the CGM do the active work of testing every four minutes (yes, essentially constant), I can pretend Im non-diabetic all I want without having to endure bruised and sore fingertips. Granted, I have to calibrate the sensor daily (+) so I am not test kit free, but at least there is some emotional distance between me and my pancreas that didnt exist when my apathy shot my A1C up to 6.5 ...
Along with resting and drinking a ridiculous amount of water, one of the things that was recommended to me post-transfer last week was to try to stay postive. Surround myself with positive energy and happy thoughts. It has been a bit of a challenge.. Outside the obvious stress of waiting these two weeks to see if our IVF was a success, maintaining a positive outlook has been a bit of a struggle for us here at the House of Peevish. I am tired. Thats to be expected as I recover from the retrieval, I suppose. Sitting around is also, surprisingly, tiring. I swore to BDH that the first thing I would do after our two weeks of waiting, pregnant or not, either way, was to take a walk and get moving again. (And no, walking to the bathroom throughout the day after drinking my daily 3L of water does not count as exercise.). Family stress is there, in the background. I got a really (typically) passive-aggressive, bizarre ranting email from my father last week. While it provided Kelly and I no end of ...
Ok, Ok, I know. Its despicable, right? You should trust your kids enough to not have to spy on them this way, right? Yeah, maybe in Perfect World. Look, my Mom and Dad probably trusted me more than any other kid I knew was trusted by their parents. Yes, I usually made good choices, but that doesnt mean that they werent concerned, that they werent careful. We keep telling parents that they need to know whats going on in their kids lives, that they need to ask and snoop and pry and do whatever it takes because otherwise their kids could go down the wrong path. Case in point: The anti-drug ads where the Mom or Dad finds pot in the kids room and then leaves a passive-aggressive note in place of the stash. Isnt that snooping? What about internet use? In the state of WA parental spying on internet use is still legal, although eavesdropping on the phone isnt. So if I lived in Seattle or Spokane, my mom could read my email but not listen on my phone? So by extension she could read my text ...
I loathe, LOATHE, Facebook causes. Or at least the ones that say something like, If you dont repost this then you love cancer.

My dander is getting up. ...

I also hope that with some distance from Dante and a new direction, I will see a different side of Valerie. I want to like the character because I think Brytni Sarpy is a gorgeous and talented actress. Unfortunately, they cast her as the mistress, which didnt do her any favors. It never mattered to me that Valerie acknowledged that her feelings for Dante were inappropriate because I never really saw her try to fight them. She was passive-aggressive in her pursuit of Dante, and she tried desperately to mitigate her wrongs by casting some of the blame for the affair on Lulu. Valeries defense for the illicit trysts has always been that she and Dante reacted to what Lulu did ...

Although, if I had to swear to it on the very first issue of Stereophile, I would admit that the Akira has a faint trace of character in the upper midrange, a little bit of extra ping, voices sounded remarkably uncolored. I cant remember where I got the file, but a favorite recording of a womans voice is Alanis Morissette singing her You Oughta Know live, accompanied by only an acoustic guitar, on The Howard Stern Show, in 2015. Despite it being a low-bit-rate (128kbps) MP3 file, this recording sounds extremely natural. Through the Akiras driven by Lamm monoblocks, Morissette was powerfully present in my room. Im not sure that was necessarily a good thing, given the passive-aggressive nature of the songs lyrics, but her every little vocal inflection was laid bare by the Tidals, with no unnatural emphasis. Nor did the Akira excel only with womens voices. In 2014, I recorded the Portland State Chamber Choir performing Henry Purcells setting of Psalm 102, O hear my Prayer, released on ...

Base of operations: T.G.I.Frenchys, Skyline City, USA The criminal mastermind known only as the Frenchman first came to notoriety when he used his Peruvian insanity salsa to enslave the waitstaff and customers of his Nacho Hut restaurant in Skyline City. His ultimate plan - to conquer the world with his insanity salsa - was ultimately foiled by the Japanese Beetle.. After his initial defeat by the Japanese Beetle, the Frenchman went about quietly rebuilding his restaurant, changing its name to T.G.I.Frenchys and hiring Frank Chao to serve as his manager. He very rarely made public appearances during this time, though he did briefly appear to sign a food services contract for Skyline City University.. Recently, the Frenchman perfected a passive-aggressive cow disease which he used to taint Skyline Citys beef supply. Though his plans to corner the meat market were thwarted by the Japanese Beetle, he still remains at large.. Distinguishing features: The Frenchman is never seen in public ...
If I shook my fists enough times Id probably get some arm muscles. Somedays i just feel so thoroughly unimpressive. Feeling unimpressive is unimpressive for sure. Maybe Im just faking it. Somedays, most days, i feel like im slipping through the cracks, but its only because I am an awfully jealous sort of person. Part me almost likes it, a sort of look at me all on my own sort of thing, but most of me does not like it, because it reminds me of middle school slumber parties when I used to hide and see if anyone noticed I was missing because I am passive-aggressive. They didnt, or at least it took forever, and I would cry and cry and then be mad at them for the rest of the night, which is probably the only reason I hid in the first place. Somedays I just wish I didnt love things because mostly it just hurts and other days i just wish that everyone would love me and tell me so and most days i want things that i shouldnt and dont deserve and that dont even make sense. Somedays i ask myself ...

Rod,. Your first email said thats all im saying. You should have left it just at that and gone upon your merry way.. But you couldnt leave it alone, could you? Had to come back with another semi-illiterate email that takes twice as long to decipher as it does to read it.. Will your next email tout all the tail youve pulled in your lifetime while the DB1 and the rest of us are merely losers stuck in front of a computer while you live like a rawk star? You neglect to realize that what we do in front of a computer all day makes you able to spew your garbage.. Finally, grow a set of balls if youre going to insult someone like DB1. kindly take your funny jokes, haha, and blow me. ?? That passive-aggressive use of insulting people might work other places, but it doesnt fly here. Let me help you with a proper insult:.

This is one of the more passive-aggressive normative signs Ive ever seen. Truly beautiful. Its posted at a store called Teatro Verde in Toronto. It almost takes passive aggression to a new level. Almost effusively polite, but quite clearly laying down the law. You can almost hear it in your head: Kids? Why yes we…
[Nowincludes a 14-page excerpt from Zari Ballards new book Stop Spinning, Start Breathing] When our committed relationship involves a narcissistic partner or someone with a narcissistic personality disorder, it is inevitable that the experience, at some point, will take a very dark turn. Pathological liars, chronic cheaters, and masters at passive-aggressive punishments (i.e. the silent treatment), narcissists follow a specific relationship agenda where every deceptive move is deliberately calculated to confuse and abuse the people who love them.And, as crazy as it appears, those who love the narcissist will stick it out, thinking they can fix this person or love them out of their bad behavior. We imagine the narcissist as mentally ill and, therefore, repairable. We bargain with logic, ignore our intuition, and become master truth spinners. And the truth, of course, is that narcissists, psychopaths, and sociopaths can never be fixed - not with love, therapy, and not with any magic pill. I know and
It was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, and received multiple other accolades. On January 24, 2012, the film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Melissa McCarthy and Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. This made it the first Apatow film to be nominated for an Academy Award.. Writing. The script, originally titled Maid of Honor, was written by Kristen Wiig and fellow actress and screenwriter Annie Mumolo. Friends for years, both had met each other at The Groundlings, a Los Angeles-based improvisational comedy troupe where they wrote sketches with one another, in the early 2000s. The basic premise for the film originated in 2006, shortly after Wiig was cast in the supporting role of a passive-aggressive cable television executive in producer Judd Apatows comedy film Knocked Up (2007).. ...
Objective: Functional recovery remains the primary goal following treatment of a psychotic disorder, especially after a first episode. Evidence regarding relative contributions of predictors of functional outcome, including symptoms and cognition, remains equivocal. The objective of the study was to determine the relative contribution of cognition, in particular verbal memory, and symptomatic remission to social and occupational functioning while controlling for established predictors of functioning in a large sample of patients presenting with a first episode of a schizophrenia spectrum or affective psychosis.. Method: Patients (aged 14-35 years) met DSM-IV criteria for a first episode of a schizophrenia spectrum or affective psychosis and had been admitted to the Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, between 2003 and 2009 for treatment and follow-up for 2 years. Established predictors (duration of untreated psychosis, medication adherence, age at ...
