I'm also a naturally quiet person.
At times,when some messed with me,i do stand up to them and get very aggressive,at other times,i will just feel like ignoring.
Sometimes ago(should have been up to a year now),i got a cab driver arrested with SARS(he was at fault sha,trying to take me for a ride cos of the quiet air around me).I noticed that after that experience,peoole who witnessed it start seeing me in a new light.
Been quiet is not a sign of weakness.only that most quiet people seem to take a long while before they get angry

They're seeing you in a new light because the quiet guy they knew took action, not necessarily because you were loud. Many quiet people are usually unpredictable like you, and that's a great sign. Btw, being quiet is not docility. Docility is a weakness, not quietness. You can be quiet but full of action (or inaction).
Action here means doing what no one expects you to do.
Inaction here means not doing what everyone expects you to do as per Mr nice and quiet guy; not giving a f**k what they think.
A docile man on the other man is completely clueless in words and in actions.
Also, like I posted earlier, loudness only gets the attention of strangers. It works when you're in the midst of strangers. In the midst of people who know you so well, loudness turns a man to a joke. Agberos are a case in point. A JJC may take them seriously but a Lagos man knows too well...

That's what happened.

It's not weakness, it's strength. Not everyone can control their emotions when stepped upon. Just learn to address the necessary ones in an appropriate way
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Ishilove: 12:22pm On Apr 03|
pryme:Very correct. I am quiet and I look quiet, so it always comes as a surprise when I start changing it for people when they cross me. A tiger does not announce its tigritude.

Meankness is the right word to be used, although foolish human see meakness as a sign of weakness but it is really the source of a spiritual strength against all odds
Those who cannot control the spirit of anger becomes slaves to the spirit of anger. He who can suppress anger has more strength.
To be meak you must learn to break your will in many things. To live in ghettos or poverty communities, you must endure all things without complaint, and to persevere faithfully is not an easy thing.
Meakness is actually the elder brother of humility, i mean meakness is a higher virtue than humility.
If you would persevere in seeking perfection, you must consider yourself a nobody and be meak. If you would become meak, you must be content to seem like a fool in this life
He who seeks to be like God, to have perfect and Godly characters will find only
trouble and grief in this world.
Meakness and gentleness is actually a substance in the spiritual realm

Ishilove:They are exceptions sha but I'm convinced they aren't Japanese.

For me it's a sign of maturity in most cases..
As you grow older u discover that there are somethings that don't necessarily deserve your attention or response.
Being quiet actually means strength to me because it's not easy to overlook certain things.

IamYourNeighbor:Its is a sign of weakness to few people. Unfortunately those few people are lousy!...so foolish people think its the truth.Being quite is a sign of maturity and intelligence.
They think before speaking, and after weighing being silent and speaking out on most occasions they have discovered that SILENCE IS GOLDEN.

Nazgul:not all the time one needs to speak.One needs to be strategic.Yorubas will say,if one haven't getting a hold on well sharpened cutlass one doesn't challenge the person that kills one's father. They will just kill someone too.
One of the wise,diplomatic and intelligent principles that made some people see yoruba as been coward anyway.

Personally I'm really learning a thing or two from the comments so far.
In some occasions, I've been expected to use brute force or exert my physical strength, but I chose discretion and rationality.
Seriously, "I can't just leap before looking."
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Fash20: 6:37pm On Apr 03|
I'm quite, I'm an introvert and i think I'm weak also. I hate it but i can't help it.
I hardly get angry, I forgive easily and I can go berserk when i can't take some sh!ts anymore.

Amarahly:Then you turn it to strenght...
I was like though, until i discovered that it will destroy me, then i train the army within me.
I can bring down an empire silently, without anyone pointing an accusing finger at me.
Because i will do everything mostly passively and selflessly.
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by AdeOri99: 10:29pm On Apr 03|
Amarahly:If you don't want it then, i can give you some practical training

anochuko01:Makes me remember a day i went to a bank, the lady that was supposed to attend to me was just being very unreasonable, and takes me for granted as i am quite young and look homely.
I was asked to submit a document a third time, due to her carelessness
This ignited the flame in me (i hate my anger)
I followed everything diplomatically, subtly establishing a strong presence around the banking hall while looking for my witness (even the security men where very cautious, seeing my stance and look)
Omo, when i finally explode, the whole auditorium was at stand still, no one dare stop me, the lady in question became very apprehensive and resolve my issue there and then.
It was after i calmed down before people are able to ask me if everything is now ok.
I just smiled and get out, lol.

It's a meekness not a weakness. Meek people will inherit the world
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Nikes(m): 12:01am On Apr 04|
You think getting physical as a way to get back at someone who has wronged you is a show of strength? Nahhh...real strength doesn't lie in the muscle, neither is it determined by how loud you get when wronged.
I'm naturally quiet, prefer to stay away from trouble and drama in general; infact, you could step on my sjoes intentionally without saying sorry and I'll let you go.
I think true strength comes from the mind. One important thing about a strong mind is its ability to discern between fights to take up and those to ignore. Pouring water on my shirt doesn't take shit out of me, so I'll ignore. There's where you touch me that I'll take more than a week planning on your case and when it happens, you'll have no idea what hit you, and by whom. It's that simple
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by kelvinrhs(m): 3:50am On Apr 04|
Me when someone step's on my toes (In the picture below)
But I agree with you, Anger is the strongest feeling in this world and been able to control it is a show of strength (Because e no easy)
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by phazotron(m): 10:30pm On Apr 04|
Quietness isn't a sign of weakness
Na how you respond after the situation go determine if you weak or strong.
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by SeunDobo(m): 4:38pm On Apr 07|
Yes you can be quite but when you see that they want to take you for granted , you must talk and let them know you no be fool unless you would be bully for long time be quite ...am introvert , gentle but I can be crazy sometimes .. that's how it's supposed be
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Reuben700: 8:28pm On Apr 07|

Buhari is both.... quiet and weak
|Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Lasky2000: 4:34pm On Apr 08|
Quietness is just like a time bomb that can explode anytime, just be watchful when someone around you is always quiet.
