#askdrcherry on Aggressiveness vs. Assertiveness

Happy day #SoCalledAggressive-Knowing the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness can often save you from a lot of conflict, can improve your personal and professional relationships and can increase your performance and productivity. Here are some major difference between the two:
 
Aggressive people violate the rights of others while assertive people advocates their rights without stepping on the rights of others
Aggressive people use humiliation while assertive people respect others
Aggressive people interrupt, while assertive people are good listeners
Aggressive people believe they are superior and always right while assertive people consider options, fair and are objective.
 
If you make a conscious effort to lean towards assertiveness, it will help you stay on the other side of the line.
