Correct Answer - Option 3 : Assertive

The correct answer is Assertive.

  • Assertive Decision Making
    • ​It is the most effective and productive decision-making.
    • In this, the person decides a calmer way rather than being aggressive.
    • It is a polite and positive way of communication.
    • It allows one to profess and defend the claims, ideas, and decisions calmly but powerful.
    • It enables one to express thoughts and feelings and increases self-esteem.

  • Passive Decision Making
    • In this, one is unable to express his feelings, needs, and opinions.
    • It leads to bad decision-making as one is not able to give his opinions and stand up for his rights.
  • Passive-Aggressive Decision Making
    • This style relates to an idiom - "The visible teeth and the teeth used by an elephant to eat are not the same".
    • In this, one appears passive but is really acting out anger in an indirect way.
    • Example: Smiling when angry
    • In this, people will feel powerless, stuck, and resentful.
    • They show cooperation while purposely doing things to disrupt the process.
  • Aggressive Decision Making
    • In this, one tries to dominate others by using abusive means.
    • They express their feelings and opinions that violate the rights of others.
    • The decision-making done in such a way will lead to negative outcomes.
    • It will not give importance to other's ideas, suggestions, and opinions.
