Are you Passive, Aggressive or Assertive?
3-MINUTE ASSERTIVENESS TEST
Use our free online assessment to determine your behaviour type
Totally anonymous -- no personal data is collected!
Have you ever wondered just where you fall on the behaviour spectrum? Does your response to a situation sometimes surprise you?
There are 15 questions below, each carefully designed to assess aspects of how you behave. Complete them and you will receive an immediate and detailed report on whether you are passive, aggressive, assertive ... or something else. It's free, it's anonymous, and you don't need to give any information (not even an email address) to get it. We hope you find it useful.
But you must answer these questions with what ACTUALLY applies to you, not what you WANT to apply to you. Your report will be based on the answers you give, so be 100% truthful!
Scroll down the page: there are 15 questions that will appear as you mouse over them: just click to select the answer for each.
Don't worry if a scenario doesn't apply directly to you, just imagine yourself in an equivalent situation.
- Don't over-think it
- If none apply, pick the closest match
- Be honest
NOTE: This will appear on your report and we won't save it, but you can leave it blank if you want to.
