    Just asking! I tend to lean toward both sets. I like a person who can stand their ground.  At the same time I think people with a soft demeandor is someone you can learn from.

    Which are you?

    I guess I'm in the middle. I hate confrontation and love for everyone to get along, but I'll stand my ground when I have to. When it comes to my kids and grands, however, I am a mama bear!

      I think this is the case for most people. I know it is for me.

        I agree. But then again, some of my people and previous staff are / were actually frightened of me and I haven't shown my claws yet smile. Guess they don't see me as a softy.

    I'm a softee when it pertains to matters of the heart, which can set me up for lots of heartbreak. But when it comes to other stuff, I'll stand my ground quite well. I had a former friend (I say former cause I had to get tough)refer to me as 'the firecracker'!

    I am a softie who doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut and was able to learn how to be a force to be reckoned with but doesn't want to live that way and has finally determined to be somewhere in the middle.

    I am in the middle actually. I start off soft but if someone pushes the wrong buttons then I am a force to be reckon

    I'm both. When I'm attacked on some forums, for instance a Stalker's Forum awhile back, by some crazy hubber. I simply pointed out the facts by using her own statements to get to the "truth" then I printed out and recorded that forum page in case any questions came up. Sadly, the crazy hubber has been out for me and clearly hateful and vindictive ever since. It almost feels like I may have corrected a bad lawyer for legal misconduct or something. Gee, I say get over yourself! smile
