Even though passive aggression takes place in our every day lives, somehow the holiday season heightens it to a whole new level. Perhaps it's the stress packed on by work, finding the right gift, or decorating the house. Yet, whatever the cause may be, passive aggression is a tradition like lighting the Menorah or putting up the Christmas tree.

Passive Aggression: How to Deal With It

Provided By: 

It's something you can guarantee will happen as soon as you get a group of people together, as certain as an exchange of gifts during the Holidays or the massive returns on December 26. Passive Aggression.

Even though passive aggression takes place in our every day lives, somehow the holiday season heightens it to a whole new level. Perhaps it's the stress packed on by work, finding the right gift, or decorating the house. Yet, whatever the cause may be, passive aggression is a tradition like lighting the Menorah or putting up the Christmas tree.

How to Define a Passive Aggressive Person


There are many ways to define a passive aggressive person. Here are a few characteristics:

  • Blaming others for personal failures

  • Pessimistic even when things are going well

  • Reluctant to show emotional fragility

  • Complaining of feeling unappreciated

  • Makes excuses to get out of social or work obligations


Passive aggressive people often come from backgrounds where they felt stifled or frustrated when it came to expressing their emotions, which might stem from their childhood. Instead of telling people exactly what they want or how they feel, they might use non-verbal gestures (pouting), backhanded compliments (to McDonald's employee: "Wow, this drive-thru line is actually moving fast today"), or little snipes that represent their differing opinion on a subject (sending a wedding invitation to a friend and unliked wife as "Jim and Guest").

How to Deal with Passive Aggression



Many people dread this time of year because of the family get-togethers. But just because they are related to you doesn't mean they can pass judgment on you (although, some family members certainly think that's what "family" means).

Quality passive aggressive time with relatives usually only lasts one day or week per year, but family members can often leave scars on a clan for years (and holidays) to come.
What to do:
1. Have confidence. When your overly concerned aunt gives you a book on "How to Find a Mate" in a gift exchange, don't let her see you get upset. Passive aggressive people are often fueled by getting a reaction out of the opposition. While some might suggest meeting passive aggression with more passive aggression (never telling the aunt that the book embarrassed you and penning up aggression instead), this writer suggests going for shock value. "Thank you, Aunt Edna, this is great. But I really enjoy anonymous sex with strangers at dive bars."

It doesn't have to be true. But if you sell it properly in your tone of voice, Aunt Edna will be off of your back next year.

2. Remind yourself that passive aggressive people have personal issues of their own. Sometimes they try to take backhanded jabs at you in order to make themselves feel better. "Your new car is really nice," says your uncle, "I'm surprised you can afford this on your salary."

Remember, that maybe he's a little jealous of the car and has an unbreakable habit of havi...

NC Residents Uninsured

Number of uninsured: 1.57 million state residents are uninsured, or about 17%.

Where the state stands: Legislation aimed at prohibiting the mandate for individuals to buy health insurance was the first item introduced after Republicans took over control of by North Carolina's General Assembly last year. Lawmakers haven't been able to overcome Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue's veto of their bill. But work to design health care exchanges has stalled since last summer.
