Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines Assertiveness as : " a form of behavior characterized by a confident declaration or affirmation of a statement without need of proof, this affirms the person's rights or point of view without either aggresively threatening the rights of another ( assuming a position of dominance ) or submissively permitting another to ignore or deny one's rights or point of view.
