The passive-aggressive personality (negativistic personality) has an undue sense of entitlement and a dependency so childlike that he or she is always trying to recreate the parent-child dyad. Passive-aggressives coerce others into performing certain functions for them by playing the role of the victim (e.g., illness, accidents, forgetfulness). Because many are victims of traumatized childhoods, they feel that the world owes them something, should take pity on them, should take care of them. Actually, they have a reverse sense of entitlement. Unlike other narcissists, they do not care about receiving rewards for their accomplishments, nor do they care about recognition.
