I believe I fall on the authoritative side considering the fact that I get whatever I put my mind and effort to attain through justifiable means. Submissiveness will depend on what is at hand and the goal in my mind.
Normally, I am an authoritative person. I try to be in control of my situations at all times - not leaving the outcome to someone else. But, I also recognize when it is in my best interest to let someone else make the decisions, so I would be submissive in that situation. For example, when it comes to determining where the furniture goes in the house, I am in control of that. But, when it comes to handling the money (since I am a little challenged in that area) I let my husband handle that. I write the checks, but I submit to allowing him to determine what, when, where, and how everything gets paid. He's good at it and life runs more smoothly. For me, it's a matter of recognizing what my strengths are and taking control when I believe I know what's best for me - not in a selfish way, but in an overall way - like what's best for the household.
Depends on the time and situation. Though very much a typical type A personality, I tend to lean more towards the authoritative; however, I do so enjoy the opposite and let people make the decisions once in a while. But only if it's what I want to do.
nehanatu86, One need to be submissive and authoritative as well. While dealing with others may it be seniors or juniors, one must be polite and submissive but if something wrong is enforced upon you and you are convinced that you are 100% correct, you must exercise your authority as as Truth must not be suppressed.
I tend to be both depending on what day the question is asked. I learned to be authoritative when I became a mother. But I also can be submissive in the sense that I am quite content to let someone else lead the parade.
I have no problem speaking my mind and no one controls me, but if someone wants to take the lead in certain situations, let them have it.
I enjoy having someone of authority above me. It helps me not make all of the main decisions. Honestly, I'm not entirely submissive. Stating my mind is what I believe in, and most rules were created by flimsy managers. Depends on the person in authority.
