    For me - it depends on whether I'm feeling confident or not in a stressful situation.
    If I'm not feeling confident, I will be passive and exhibit behaviors which seem 9-ish.
    If I'm feeling confident, I am assertive - nothing gets in my way. I can power through any shitty obstacles life deals me.

    That is incredibly relateable.

    It can depend on how important the situation is to deal with, too. If it's stressful but at least temporarily ignorable, I will probably ignore it and focus my energy somewhere more immediately relevant. If it's something I need to get through in order to get to whatever goal I'm after, I'll probably steamroll through it. If I have been attempting to steamroll with not much progress, I'll get passive until I stop feeling exhausted and/or suss out a better angle to approach it from.

    3s are more diplomatic so they'd rather be more passive than aggressive

    Not if passive means stuff that needs to be happening not happening though. But I'll agree to assertive over aggressive and not really wanting to rock the boat.
