  1. 1. Doing Nothing

  3. 3. Passive behaviors • When I discount, I do so by making statement to myself in my own head. • Thus a discount itself is not observable. • Since you can’t thought read, you have no way of knowing I am discounting unless I speak or act in some way which indicates the presence of the discount.
  4. 4. Passive behaviors • There are four types of behavior which always indicate that the person concerned is discounting. They are • Doing nothing. • Over adaptation. • Agitation. • Incapacitation or violence.
  5. 5. Doing nothing • The members of a TA group are sitting in a circle. • The group leader says : “ Let’s go round the group and each person say what he or she appreciates or resents about today’s session. If you don’t want to take part, it’s OK to say “Pass”. • The exercise begins. People round the group each give an appreciation or resentment. One or two say “Pass”.
  6. 6. Doing nothing • Then came Norman’s turn. There is a silence. People waited for Norman to say something but he doesn’t. • He sits unmoving and silent, staring into space. Since he doesn’t seem to want to speak any appreciation or resentment, the person next to him waits for him to say “Pass”. • But Norman doesn’t do that either. He continues to sit as if dumb.
  7. 7. Doing nothing • Norman is showing the passive behavior called doing nothing. • Instead of using energy to take problem solving action, he is using into to stop himself from acting. • A person exhibiting this passive behavior feels uncomfortable and experiences himself as not thinking. • He is discounting his own ability to do anything about the situation.
