How Assertive Are You?
Your best friend forgets your birthday, and it really hurts your feelings. How do you react?
You confront her about it
You bring it up - telling her how it made you feel
You jokingly bring it up
You ignore it. Everyone makes mistakes.
You don't say anything but make sure and forget her birthday too!
You're waiting to be seated at a restaurant, and a smaller group that came fifteen minutes after you get seated first. You:
Make a scene and demand to see the manager
Tell the hostess that you were there first
Send them a complaint email when you get home
Post a bunch of bad reviews of the restaurant online
People at work aren't pulling their weight. How do you respond?
Tell them they need to ship up or you'll tell the boss
Schedule a meeting with your boss and voice your concerns
Ask people to do more of the tasks they should be doing
Say nothing, but look for a new job
Secretly conspire to get them fired
You need to ask a friend for a big favor. How do you do it?
You come right out and ask. If you get resistance, you point out the favors you've done for your friend.
You ask and offer up a favor in return.
You tell your friend what you need done, but you don't ask directly.
You end up not asking. You're not good at asking for favors.
You make your friend feel sorry for you, and you use guilt to get your way.
If a salesperson is pressuring you at a store, you:
Use it as an opportunity to drive a hard bargain
Say no and leave quickly
Buy something but later return it
End up buying something and feeling bad about it later
Subtle insult the salesperson until he's totally humiliated
When it comes to love:
You always say "I love you" first, and often a bit too early
You always say "I love you" first, but only when it's timely
You have no problem saying "I love you" - once it's been said
It's hard for you to say "I love you"
You usually hear "I love you" for the first time after a fight
Are You Joyful?
Are You Even or Odd?
Are You a Couch Potato?
