Do you like to be "in your face", or do you try to avoid the situation (or be passive about it)?

Avoid what sorts of situations?

If you mean negative situations, it depends on how I feel. Sometimes I'll go full out and address the issue face on but other times I prefer to stay low and poke at the problem at a later date. I really deal with problems in the smartest way possible, which has proved quite beneficial in some instances.

I'm extremely passive about most things and tend to suppress my involvement negative/emotional situations as long as possible. I dislike confrontation because it makes me feel uncomfortable and depending on the situation, I believe it makes the person in question equally as uncomfortable. I'm practically never 'in-your-face' about anything, admittedly.

^pretty much

I hate revealing my true feelings towards people or some things when it comes to confronting. I get really scared and get so emotional because I'm scared of what will the person say about my feelings.

But when the time comes, I go face-to-face with the person when I feel I have the confidence to do so.

    Probably the most logical way to approach it: change the approach based on how you feel/how the problem presents itself, since every problem will require a different solution.

    Yet I'm not always the most logical thinker so I tend to shy away from confrontation and hope things sort of justresolve themselves. If action is required I'll take it, but I never charge into things head first.

    I tend to become passive aggressive. And if the notice then I'll either push it aside and say that there is nothing wrong (if I don't want to talk about it) or speak up and be more 'in their face'. Also if they happen to notice my passive aggressiveness more than once. Then that's a sign that I really should say something.

    The problem with me is that generally, I don't care about things. I'm incredibly indifferent about most things that affect my life or my day.

    Because of this, I think people take me to be an incredibly passive person and often try to take advantage of me. When something bothers me, I'll address it.

      I'm indifferent towards most situations, so that makes me mostly passive about them.

      I avoid negative situations like the plague. I just don't deal with them. They'll either sort themselves out or I'll end up taking the easy way out so that I can end it as quick as I can.

      I'm a pretty passive person, but I like to think to myself, "I told you so" when I turn out to be right in a situation. I'm not quite sure what kind of situation you mean, though.

        I'll be direct if the situation deems it necessary, but otherwise I'd like to avoid it if it all possible.

          I'm usually very in-your-face but sometimes I can't be for various reasons. In those cases I will find ways to vent and forget about it.
          I'm never passive and I find it hard to let things go if I don't vent about it because I'll continuously think about it and it'll consume my thoughts. If something bothers me, then how can I brush it off like it doesn't matter when it obviously does matter to me?

          I tend to be passive about things unless it's really bothering me or if I feel it needs immediate attention. So it's a little bit of both. Though if it's a situation that will make me upset, I'll avoid that.

          I'm incredibly in your face to the point where it might be a bad thing. I was a pushover once before so I decided I wasn't going to deal with it anymore. Oh well, love me or hate me you eventually find out who I am.

            I don't like to be all up in someone's face but I also won't hide from it, i'll just gently confront the person about whatever it was that he/she did.

            That depends. I can be very very stubborn and aggressive in certain situations, if I feel it's necessary, but generally I'm very passive, and avoid conflict whenever possible.
