5 Tactics Used By Passive-Aggressive Arguers (And The Best Forms of Defense)

Quote
The passive aggressive arguer comes armed with tricky tactics. They cannot take the risk that they might be wrong: their self-esteem is too intertwined with their opinions. It is more important to affirm their rightness, and sense of superiority, than to arrive at the truth. And so they become masters at a deflecting attention away from their weak ideas, and at creating the kind of confusion in which they can control the dynamic. They do this by working on people’s emotions. They seek to rankle and push buttons.
