The main aim of ‘put-downs’ are to make one feel small or, manipulate a person into doing something that is not to the best of his interests. Response to such situations should be just to protect your right and self-esteem, let the other know that you have got the message and, ask for a quick stop to that behaviour.

CONCLUSION An assertive person is a born leader. He is resourceful, active, handy and quick witted, gentle and brutal, straight forward and innovative, capable of caution and to take surprises, lavish and rapacious, generous and mean, strong at defense and skillful in attack.
