Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder traits

A while back, I posted about cruising around the internet to see how I go about getting a divorce. One link about passive aggressive behavior led to another link about personality disorders, and I ended up going down the rabbit hole again.

I wrote a long post about Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) traits, and checked off which traits D exhibits. I checked all but one box.

Today I want to list the traits of passive-aggressive people.

Apparently, Psychiatrists no longer recognize the Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder condition as an official diagnosis, but it is still recognized as a condition which causes problems for people.

Don't I know it!

While D has most of the NPD characteristics, I recognize that he is very very passive. On top of the narcissistic traits, he has all of the passive-aggressive traits below, which were gathered from several websites.

Along with proceeding with the rest of my life as if he has NPD, I'm also living under the assumption he also has PAPD - Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder. Again,  I have added a ☑ in front of trait I have seen in D. I have dozens of stories about how he has displayed each of the checked items.

☑  Acting sullen, easily offended, being disagreeable and irritable.

☑  Intentional avoidance of responsibility by claiming forgetfulness. Using inaction to let a problem escalate.

☑  Being inefficient on purpose, contradictory and inconsistent behavior, performing in a manner that is not useful and sometimes even damaging.

☑  Blaming others.

☑  Complaining about being unappreciated, criticizing or protesting, chronically impatient.

☑  Feeling resentment, resentful of useful suggestions or demands from others.

☑  Having a fear of authority. Argumentative, sulky, and hostile, especially toward authority figures.

☑  Having unexpressed anger or hostility and acting hostile or cynical, going to self-destructive lengths to seek vengeance.

☑  Procrastinating, temporary compliance, intentional avoidance of responsibility, or compliance too late to be helpful.

☑  Stubbornness, resisting other people's suggestions.

☑  Sabotaging the action to show anger that they cannot express in words, hidden but conscious revenge, doing things to punish others when they feel wronged.
