formidable sign of strength in some people.

sign of weakness in some as well, truth be told.


buhh if it's about being quiet by nature, it's an embodiment of formidable strength.

For me i just like being quiet sometimes, i don't care whether its a sign of strength or weakness.

See its does not matter whether you are loud or quiet, as long as you know what you are doing. Knowing what you are doing is all the strength you need. cheesy cheesy cheesy

Being quiet, calm and calculative make you dangerous! Its a sign of strength. People tend to hate what they don't understand so its normal. Just ignore them

Ignore? Till when?

I'm generally uncomfortable around people who are painfully quiet.

They suck up too many things because they find it difficult to communicate their feelings.

They let people get away with things that shouldn't be tolerated.

They think they're keeping the peace by not expressing their own preferences.

But they simply end up feeling invalidated... the anger they constantly fail to express often wells up inside of them.

You don't know when a quiet person resents you.
You don't know when you're offending a quiet person.

Not healthy at all.

Quiet people don't have talk because, a good percentage of the people out there lack comprehension, talking to them or expressing how you feel makes no difference.

I am a introverted quiet person, if you see me take a stand with my siblings or mum, you will be shocked, but when I see some stranger behavior rude I just don't care enough to have a conversation. It's not worth it, I just ignore, and no its doesn't build up because I don't care about the person, I won't even remember him in the next 5 minutes.

Anger, love, feelings are connected, if you don't mind, it won't matter.

I arrested one of my neighbors last week for pushing me.

Bastard didn't know I could beat him to a pulp if I want (am a kickboxer).

I chose a more rational approach - get him arrested.

Bastard had to path with 20k to gain his freedom and went round telling everyone I arrested him because we had an argument over sand.

People were shocked but my wife knows me well, I can do really bad stuff that will shock most people.

I just chose a milder approach.

Next time I will get him beaten up before arresting him.

I just heard from someone that "being quiet is almost same thing as being weak." What a society we live in! Being loud is taken as being strong, and being quiet is taken as being weak !

What's your assertion to this ideology people?
It is subjective, it could be either of the two... Mostly it strength �

I'm a quiet person, I'd say it's weakness (IMO) cause I've had people step on my toes and walk away ...
I am a quiet person but you won't want to dare me coz I don't take shit. The fact that am quiet makes me see any stepping of toes as you taking advantage of my gentleness nd am gonna strike u hard for that. Instant judgement.

Being quiet makes you very unpredictable because people don't know your next line of action as you don't talk too much

Being quiet could be a sign of deadliness. The deadly ones do not make noise.

yea! Just like Mess. Quiet ones are deadlier than the loud ones.

1st sentence: Very true

How exactly is letting people mess with me an attribute of strength embarassed it could be true in a way but It's not the kind of strength I'll like to possess
Sometimes is good to just let things slide and just walk away. To some it's a sign of weakness on your part but it's actually maturity on your part and by doing so you will heap hot feiry coals on their head. If assuming you act on Impulse or anger and things go very wrong, you will have regrets later on. Just let it go and have rest of mind at night.

@IamYourNeighbor

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
Well said man, well said smiley

Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Heathrow44: 8:34pm On Apr 08
Being quiet might be a sign of strength to u but outwardly its a sign of weakness cos it opens u up to all kinds of hostilities, misdemeanor and unkind acts, is wiser to show outward strength cos the world we live in doesn't care if u are quiet or a gentleman or not, it would Bleep u up! It would deal ruthlessly with u, till u learn how to bend steel! I used to be like u b4, felt that being quiet, and introvert was the best it kept u out of trouble, but no, it puts u out there as a soft target even people that where going to mind their business on sighting u would make u their business and would use u as a joke! So even if u re quiet, wear a mask in public and when u get home take it off!

Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by Jamsal18(m): 8:37pm On Apr 08
Being quiet is both a weakness and strength, you should learn how to transit between the two, being quiet doesn't mean you shouldn't stand up for yourself and being quiet sometimes is a biggest strength. I know this cuz I'm a quite guy, tho i talk when I'm with guys i vibe with, for my neighborhood I no dey vibe with anyone just normal chat when necessary, with this you will earn people respect, and maybe sometimes people will find it hard to you�
Re: Is Being Quiet A Sign Of Weakness by fakati(m): 8:42pm On Apr 08
Its strength but sometimes you follow it up with madness especially when people want to take you for a ride like in my place of some people if you are trying to create room for peace they will think you afraid for such people is madness for madness.

To lend credence to your piece
Psychologically, human display non verbal communication more than verbal communication, and for this reason, we understand and respect/react to non verbal communication more than verbal
Have you forgotten the adage,
Action speak louder than voices ??

It depends, being quiet can be weak in certain scenarios and very strong in certain scenarios. Also depends on the reason ure being quiet.

Sometimes being quiet is due to locked up emotions and thoughts which if not let out properly or neutralized Can be a problem.

Still waters run deep.

Quietness can be either.... I do not take chances with quiet people. No doubt... some are weak.... while some are like volcanoes..... quiet but can suddenly explode.
