Have you ever felt that someone’s behavior was passive-aggressive? You sense that the person is mad at you, but you can’t be fully sure. They didn’t come right out and say it, but they definitely are acting like it. Maybe they stopped returning your texts and phone calls.
Maybe they keep throwing you vague compliments wrapped in clever insults. It could be that they always seem to have a resting bitch face …. but only around you.
That is the art of being passive-aggressive. Instead of clearing the air right away sometimes people take more time to come out and say that they are mad. It sometimes takes even longer for them to say what they are mad about. Some horoscope signs are like that and there’s a reason why.
Passive-aggressiveness can be ignited in an array of different ways. It’s a defense mechanism when someone doesn’t know how to approach who they are angry with. It makes the person really work for their forgiveness, or it could be the natural/go-to nature of the person who is being that way.
If you’ve been on the receiving end of someone’s passive aggressive behavior you know how confusing it can be. You probably have gone through everything you’ve done with and to that person to try and find the scene of the crime where you could have hurt them.
However, If you have been that passive aggressive person, you know what the deal is. It can be easier to beat around the bush when the problem seems too big or hurts too much. When someone extremely close to you is the one that hurts you being passive aggressive can be a way to punish them for burning you.
Looking at your zodiac sign can help determine where your astrological traits fall on the passive-aggressive scale. According to astrology, some signs just simply are that way and some signs are the complete opposite, maybe being extremely blunt.
Check out the list below to see where you and your friends are on the passive-aggressive rollercoaster.
