4. “Emperor Frederick, the thirteenth-century ruler of the Holy Roman Empire, wanted to know what language had been spoken at the birth of mankind in the Garden of Eden. Was it Hebrew, Greek, or Latin? He ordered an experiment in which the original circumstances would be re-created as closely as possible. A group of infants were to be isolated from hearing human speech from the moment of birth until they spoke their language. The babies were to be raised by wet nurses who were strictly charged to maintain complete silence when with the babies. All the conditions of the experiment were successfully carried out. The result? Every one of the babies died. The lack of communication is often toxic and can be lethal.” – Robert Bolton

6. “When you ignore these gestures, people will think their actions were unhelpful and unappreciated. This sends a bad cue to your peer especially if their input was requested. They will stop connecting with you and, worse, they might even get offended by your lack of response.” – John Ward

7. “Avoiding the issue (the passive option) shuts down the communication before it begins. Resentful, brooding silence (the passive-aggressive option) leaves the reason for your displeasure a mystery and invites the other person to guess (and feel frustrated that you don’t just tell them) or to ignore it altogether.” – Randy J. Paterson

Most overly passive individuals not only avoid conflict, but they also avoid expressing positive feeling.” – Randy J. Paterson
