Submissive no, but receptive rather or cooperative? To indicate that you are receptive to learn what the other has to teach you is what is
Well, that is exactly the difference between the level of respect you show everyone,
and the kind of respect people are refering to in terms of hierarchy.
Like you do not act the same towards your boss, as you do with a coworker,
Nor respond to a bum on the street as you do with your professor.
For one thing, trusting all people to be able to handle that receptivity and not abuse it can be naive.
I don't know, I personally had to learn this, because I was raised and developed in a way that I made no difference, and what happens is that you get
walked on and abused a lot when you are that receptive to everyone.
If you are that receptive to everyone, there is no room for self respect. People end up not only thinking very little of you, but feeling resentful
of how tempting you are to abuse (and making them hate themselves).
I dont know, maybe this is more a problem when one is a pretty female......
