2. Examples of Passive-aggressive Behavior

Passive-aggressive behavior can be shown in several ways. Stubbornness, procrastination, and sullenness are typically exhibited. A person may mask their anger by making excuses for their non-compliance. People who are hostile may deny being angry even though it is obvious that they are upset. A procrastinating passive-aggressive co-worker may wait until the last minute to complete their assigned work or submit work late as a means of punishment.
