    Passive.
    Being aggressive doesn't mean acting like a dumbass and being reckless. It means being assertive and sure of yourself. Beside girls love it when your aggressive.

    I'm passive and don't give the opportunity to get used or run over. But being laid back has went against me at times and I've missed out on getting laid because I wasn't aggressive enough. You just have to have that even balance.

    I'll say passive.

    On the end of aggressive--it doesn't have to go to the far end of the spectrum....so it's not always a bad thing.

    Being too passive. When you are too passive you have all the friends but they run over you and you dont have shit.
    When you are too aggressive. You dont have friends (you have associates)but you have everything!

    Most folks are passive-aggressive anyway.

    matter of choice really...

    Is it better to be the asshole everyone hates but respects or be the person everyone likes but wont even think twice about overstepping their boundaries.

    I'd rather be agressive.

    Having respect>>

    I'm like the perfect median though. I am a laid back dude, nice, funny etc. I have a lot of friends, but I've shown my temper is not to be fucked with enough times that people don't step to me like that. It takes a while to piss me off.

    Being too passive annoys the shit out of me. I'm more aggressive and shit, so I need a man who can keep up with me and challenge me as well. I don't have time for all that passive shit. Aggressiveness turns me on, get the hell out from under your covers and shake me or something, bitch.

    it is hard to just try to "be passive" passive is something that is best when it is there from the gate...trying to be "passive" with ppl that are already aggressive or even passive aggressive....ppl find that they are acting as a sell out or they aren't getting the results they usualy get..its sort of like trying to change your whole personality....

    TOO much of either is never really a good thing. I've seen passive people suceed in life and agressive people suceed in life, but people are too much in either tend to struggle.

    A lot of people are passive-agressive though. U have to know when to be one or the other. I used to be very agressive to the point I almost got myself killed.

    Then tried being extra passive... but that always cool shit dont work for me

    I'm a chill person, go with the flow so, don't like conflict or drama so I'd rather be too passive than too aggressive

    but I'm more passive aggressive than anything
