TOP DEFINITION

assertive

Assertiveness is an interpersonal skill in which you demonstrate healthy confidence and are able to stand up for yourself and your rights, while respecting the rights of others.

When you're assertive, you are direct and honest with people. You don't beat around the bush or expect people to read your mind about what you want. If something is bothering you, you speak up; if you want or need something, you ask. You do all this while maintaining a calm and civil demeanor.

Assertiveness also requires an understanding that while you can make a request or state an opinion, others are well within their right to say no or disagree. You don't get upset or angry when that happens. You stay in control and work to come to some sort of compromise. When you're assertive, you understand that you might not get what you want. You’ll learn, however, that it not only doesn't hurt to ask, but actually helps to ask as well.
