1. Not spoken: indicated tacit approval by smiling and winking. 2. Implied by or inferred from actions or statements: Management has given its tacit approval to the plan.
Someone who says nothing remains silent and does not express or declare openly, by implied consent to go ahead with and that it is ok to Sabotage. This person operates on “I won’t fix mine if you don’t fix yours”, “I won’t look if you don’t look”, “I won’t know if you don’t know”, “I won’t plan if you won’t plan”, “I won’t act if you won’t act”, “I won’t learn if you won’t learn”, “I won’t work hard if you don’t work hard.” Tacit realities are deadly and are never true, but appear to be true due to the unspoken, unexpressed agreements.
