Healthy Place - Does Your Attitude Make You Look Insecure?

Recently, I had the frustrating experience of working with someone who had a defensive attitude. When asked to preform a task, she was disrespectful and made excuses. Even emailing curt, disrespectful statements to those who work above her. Hardly a team player, when asked why a task wasn’t complete, she blamed everyone but herself. It got me thinking, what is the function for her defensiveness? The answer: insecurity.
