Passive-aggressive behavior

Passive-aggressive behavior
Passive-aggressive behavior is the indirect expression of hostility, such as through procrastination, sarcasm, hostile jokes, stubbornness, resentment, sullenness, or deliberate or repeated failure to accomplish requested tasks for which one is (often explicitly) responsible. For research purposes, the DSM-IV describes passive-aggressive personality disorder as a "pervasive pattern of negativistic attitudes and passive resistance to demands for adequate performance in social and occupational situations". Concept in different areas[edit] In psychology[edit] In psychology, passive-aggressive behavior is characterized by a habitual pattern of passive resistance to expected work requirements, opposition, stubbornness, and negativistic attitudes in response to requirements for normal performance levels expected of others. Passive-aggressive may also refer to a person who refuses to acknowledge their own aggression (in the sense of "agency"), and who manages that denial by projecting it.

Personality disorder Personality disorders are a class of mental disorders characterised by enduring maladaptive patterns of behavior, cognition and inner experience, exhibited across many contexts and deviating markedly from those accepted by the individual's culture. These patterns develop early, are inflexible and are associated with significant distress or disability.[1] The definitions may vary some according to other sources.[2][3] Official criteria for diagnosing personality disorders are listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, published by the American Psychiatric Association, and in the mental and behavioral disorders section of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, published by the World Health Organization. The DSM-5 published in 2013 now lists personality disorders in exactly the same way as other mental disorders, rather than on a separate 'axis' as previously.[4] Classification[edit] World Health Organization[edit]

Social Anxiety and the Fear of Eating in Front of Others The fear of eating in front of others can wreak havoc on your personal and professional life. Socializing usually includes some form of food and drink. Business meetings often take place over lunch or dinner. If eating and drinking in front of others causes you extreme anxiety, you may either endure these situations with great discomfort or avoid them altogether. Triggers Fear of eating and drinking in front of others can be triggered by a wide variety of situations, foods, and dining companions. If you are like most people with this problem, your level of anxiety probably escalates in proportion to how difficult the food is to eat. The type of beverage does not usually influence level of fear, although drinks that are more likely to stain, such as red wine, may provoke more anxiety. Fears If you have a fear of eating or drinking in front of others, there is probably a long list of embarrassing events that you worry might happen in these situations. Treatment Sources: Stein M.

Burke Lecture: John Shelby Spong DARPA researches new life for dead satellites - Air Force News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq - Air Force Times By Alicia Chang - The Associated Press Posted : Tuesday Jan 22, 2013 14:46:13 EST LOS ANGELES — Call it space grave robbery for a cause: Imagine scavenging defunct communication satellites for their valuable parts and recycling them to build brand new ones for cheap. It’s the latest pet project from the Pentagon’s research wing known for its quirky and sometimes out-there ideas. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is spending $180 million to test technologies that could make this possible. When satellites retire, certain parts — such as antennas and solar panels — often still work. DARPA thinks it can save money by repurposing in orbit. “We’re attempting to essentially increase the return on investment ... and try to find a way to really change the economics so that we can lower the cost” of military space missions, said DARPA program manager David Barnhart.

How to Stop Feeling Nervous About Eating Around Other People Edit Article Edited by Flickety, Krystle, Alhen, Danielle and 22 others Feeling nervous about eating around people is common among men, women, and children. Social notions tell us that it is not nice to be seen eating in public, mostly for fear that people will think we are eating too much, and will look "fat" or "undesirable." With all the mixed messages we get about beauty, propriety and health, it can lead many to worry about letting a mouthful pass the lips in public. If it is so bad that you can never eat outside of your own home or office cubicle, it's important to fight that fear and learn to feel comfortable eating around people again. Ad Steps 1Think about why you have this fear. 9See a health professional. Tips Warnings Don't let this go on forever; it can ruin your enjoyment of life by curtailing your outings.

Rebuilding The Human Body Today I’m going to focus on medical technologies that are available or being researched now that can be implanted into (or onto) humans. Specifically, I am going to talk about tech that promises to restore (and one day replace) faulty biological systems. We will start at the top: Eyes: Scientific American reports that scientists have created a retinal implant that can restore sight to some of the blind. Light-detecting cones (called photoreceptors) in the eyes that malfunction cause some forms of blindness. Already, however, upgrades are in the works. Not only could one replace the eye, however, the implant could have additional functionality. Chest: The eyes are hardly the only organs we can replace; scientists recently implanted an artificial, and pulseless, heart inside a man. Not only is the function of the heart being improved upon, but also scientists have recently created the lightest artificial heart and implanted it into a baby. Arms:

Complaint Filed With U.N. Against Canada For Failing To Prosecute George W. Bush For Torture Eurasia Review By Eurasia Review Four torture survivors filed a complaint Wednesday against Canada with the United Nations Committee against Torture for the country’s failure to investigate and prosecute former President George W. Bush during his visit to British Columbia last year. As a signatory to the Convention against Torture, Canada has an obligation to investigate and prosecute a torture suspect on its soil, the group claimed. Canada “Canada has the jurisdiction and the obligation to prosecute a torture suspect present in Canada, including a former head of state, and even one from a powerful country,” said Matt Eisenbrandt, CCIJ’s Legal Director. The four men – Hassan bin Attash, Sami el-Hajj, Muhammed Khan Tumani and Murat Kurnaz – found their long quest for justice stymied in October 2011. “Through this process, the world can learn whether Canada’s actions were grounded in law or in politics.
