if you're submissive, you do what your told with no question and can come across as being scared of the person you are being submissive to. Submissive posture is different to dominant. You would stand smaller and would probably look down /fidget a bot. Being submissive can be mis-read as being scared, but it's kinda being really obedient and trusting. A submissive dog would do as it's told and would not jump up or bark at the person, it would be calm/submissive :)
