The Submissive exhibits passive behaviour. This means shying away from saying what you really mean and not seeking to fulfil your needs, especially when someone else has
The Submissive seeks to avoid upsetting others because they fear them. In testing circumstances The Submissive is likely to assume fault and accept culpability when singled out.
The Submissive is often weak spirited in matters of social impact and will refrain from expressing the truth if it deviates from accepted norms or the DOMINANT narrative.
Example: A child is bullied at school for eating salad but neither fights back nor seeks assistance. They may wish to eat healthy, but mockery and derision means it is easier for them to eat chips and save face. Thereby securing their submission to a dominant authority.
The Submissive may wish they could be stronger, like the bully, but prefer a quiet life free from responsibility or adversity. They reject growth and strength in favour of convenience.
They adopt a lie for ease of survival, but become unhappy, inauthentic and slavish in character.
The core assumption of The Submissive is that they are inferior to others in some way, and so others have greater rights and more valid truths than themselves.
The Submissive will typically suppress their feelings and repress memories of being dominated, particularly early triggers that led them to their submissive state. They may
also cope with the disappointment of not getting what they want by trivialising.
The result of submissive behaviour is that you get little of what you want whilst losing the respect of others. You are also likely to fall into a spiral of failing self-esteem, internal anger and psychosomatic dilemma.
