Characteristics of a challenging attitude
When an individual approaches another, convinced of his superiority in something and proposes a challenge, we face a challenge. If the other person accepts the same, they must test each other, at the point where they have agreed, and it will be proven who of the two has more abilities to win.
In this type of actions the attitude of the one who proposes the challenge is fundamental . Many times, a person who answers with some pride is understood as "challenging", when in fact his way of acting may be more related to a certain insecurity than to an overvaluation of his person. Similarly, when a child answers an adult, he is not necessarily challenging him, it is possible that you are really convinced of what you believe and simply wants to be heard.
The challenge it's something positive ; It is good for people to put themselves to the test and face others to grow and progress in what they know how to do. However, sometimes it is shown as something negative because people do not understand the true meaning of this.
It is important, therefore, educate in safety . If a child feels humiliated or inferior to another, it is likely to show a negative attitude and manifest a attitude of counterproductive challenge . On the other hand, if you feel calm and happy to be who you are, you will manifest an attitude of defiance in front of another in order to overcome something and not as a defensive or scary attitude.
