Silence speaks volumes.

What type of persons gives the silent treatment?.

The silent treatment might be employed by passive personality types to avoid conflict and confrontation, while strong personality types use it to punish or control. Some people may not even consciously choose it at all.
Silence can have different effects on people. Some people find silence, peace, and calming, while others may find it unsettling or even frightening. Silence is often considered the best revenge because it allows a person to maintain their dignity and composure in the face of someone else's negative behaviour or words. Instead of stooping to the level of the person who has hurt them, they choose to remain silent and not engage in a heated argument or confrontation.

Silence can also be powerful because it can make the other person feel uncomfortable or uncertain about their behaviour. It can also be a sign of self-control, intelligence, and maturity. Additionally, when someone chooses to remain silent, they are not giving the other person the satisfaction of getting a reaction out of them. They are taking away the power from the other person and showing that their words or actions do not affect them. It's worth noting that silence can be used as a tool for revenge, but it's not the only way, and it may not be the best way depending on the situation. It's important to consider the context and the person you are dealing with and to act in a way that is consistent with your values and beliefs
Your silence speaks a thousand words. It shows them you don’t have any more breaths to waste on them. You don’t have any more time to dedicate to them. You’re completely and utterly done with them.
Instead of hurting your throat screaming or hurting your fist punching a wall, you can easily block their number, delete them from social media, and throw all their photographs in your digital trashcan. You can erase them from your world with a press of a button.

It might sound anticlimactic. It might sound unsatisfying. But sometimes, silence is your healthiest choice. If you resort to screaming and fighting and cursing them out, it might feel good in the moment, but that feeling probably won’t last. You’ll still be angry in the end. You still won’t feel like you’ve gotten everything off your chest. You’ll still be in a bad mood.
Fighting with someone toxic isn’t going to accomplish anything. You’re not going to make them feel bad, and you’re not going to make yourself feel any better. You’re only going to cause yourself more stress. Your best option is to put that stress in the past. Release it from your grasp. Decide you’re done with the drama. Decide this person isn’t worth your energy.

Sometimes, silence is the best revenge. Watching you drop off the face of the planet will hurt them more than anything you could have said to them. They’re going to wonder how you’ve been. They’re going to wonder what’s on your mind. They’re going to wonder what you’ve been doing. The questions are going to eat away at them.
Choosing silence doesn’t make you a coward. It makes you mature. It makes you smart enough to know when it’s time to step away from a bad situation. Sometimes, taking the high road doesn’t mean forcing fake smiles and accepting apologies. It means leaving someone toxic in your past instead of fighting with them again and again in the future

Your silence is meaningful. It shows them that you don’t care enough about them to raise your voice or your middle finger at them. It shows them you have more important things to worry about than whatever drama they’re trying to cause
Sometimes, silence is the best revenge. Sometimes, instead of having the same argument over and over, you should hit that block button. You should remove all the toxic hearts from your life.
