Labeling individuals who participate in subtle manipulation tactics as “passive aggressive” is basically sugarcoating the reality that they are covertly aggressive people. Those who are covertly aggressive often avoid giving direct answers to certain questions, and they often act as though they are confused or innocent in order to scheme their way out of things. It is important to deal with covert aggression in an assertive manner, and to refrain from accepting any excuses for their subtly aggressive behavior.
