As a communication style and strategy, Assertiveness is distinguished from Aggression and Passivity. How people deal with personal boundaries; their own and those of other people, helps to distinguish between these three concepts. Passive communicators do not defend their own personal boundaries and thus allow aggressive people to harm or otherwise unduly influence them. They are also typically not likely to risk trying to influence anyone else. Aggressive people do not respect the personal boundaries of others and thus are liable to harm others while trying to influence them. A person communicates assertively by not being afraid to speak his or her mind or trying to influence others, but doing so in a way that respects the personal boundaries of others. They are also willing to defend themselves against aggressive incursions.
There needs to be an article about the development of self-esteem as an educational concept, with a timeline
Recently something was put on the main Self esteem page saying that wikipedia destroys self esteem (or something close to that). As it turns out, someone in my school saw me type my password and recently confessed to doing this. He also took part in something on a wikipedia page called Frankenbush. I changed my password and this will not happen again.
Confused about why my edit was reverted
This article is clearly a mess but I got here by searching for terms used in another article (I guess it is a hang out for arrogant people). The heading of that article (Ideal mental health) said it needed more links from other articles, I placed a sentence in this article which linked to that article (and linked the term I used to this article) why is that reverted? For some reason I cannot log in.
rv page blanking
self esteem is basically something that is like a hurdle to success. its literal meaning is ego, self confidence. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) who replaced the page with this comment, 13:54 14 August 2007 (UTC).edit
Proposed merge with Self-confidence
Complete invalid paragraph?
The first paragraph, instead of defining or explaining the term, it states as below:
"|title=Bartleby.com: Great Books Onliner -- Quotes, Poems, Novels, Classics and hundreds more|website=Bartleby.com|accessdate=11 December 2017}}</ref> self-respect, and self-integrity."
This has nothing to do with Self-esteem definition and it does not stay within Wikipedia's good article etiquette. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thevalos (talk • contribs) 01:33, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Unconditional positive regard
This article mentions Carl Rogers and then talks about "unconditional acceptance". I thought that the term which Rogers used was "unconditional positive regard". Vorbee (talk) 17:22, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
