What Is ‘Passive Aggressive’ Behavior? Examples Of Psychological Manipulation & Microaggressions | Dr. Tarra Bates-Duford – YourTango

When someone displays passive aggressive behavior, they tend to mask their anger or aggression in strange ways. Passive-aggressive people who feel angry might repeatedly claim that they are not mad, insisting they are “fine” — even when it's pretty apparent they're actually furious and not at all okay. Everyone expresses this behavior differently; showing it through microaggressions like avoiding eye contact, showing up late, missing important events, self-isolating, feigning depression, being short with their responses, or sending glaring looks your way.
