The difference between Bad Behaviour & Difficult Behaviour.
Hi, I’m Mark McPherson. Every week for 52 weeks, I’m posting a blog about of one of my 52 types of poorly behaved and difficult people. So 52 blogs = 52 weeks = 52 types. This week’s blog will be published tomorrow. But today I’m publishing something extra. It’s a video explaining the difference between bad behaviour and difficult behaviour. I’m sure you’ll find it useful. Enjoy.
What’s Bad Behaviour and what’s Difficult Behaviour?
Too many people use the terms ‘bad behaviour’ and ‘difficult behaviour’ but either don’t define them at all or, in my opinion, define them poorly.
So in this short video I give you my definition of bad behaviour (which can also be described as poor, unacceptable, unsatisfactory, below the line, not up to scratch behaviour etc) and of difficult behaviour.
In a nutshell, bad behaviour is behaviour which breaks our personal standards of behaviour. For example, you might have standards like people should: be at work on time; obey the rules; not swear; not drop litter; do what they said they’d do; not put people down; admit our mistakes; etc. Now like it or not, we’ve all been guilty of some bad behaviour in our life. After all, we’re only human.
On the other hand, difficult behaviour is where a person not only exhibits bad behaviour, but also doesn’t show sincere remorse for their behaviour and where they repeat the behaviour in one form or another.
