It may be passive, but that does not invalidate this as an accurate answer as well.

@chasly. those are not passive. if you think they are, make them into active sentences. in fact there is no object, so they cannot be passive.

comment What is the word for a woman dominating in social family situations?
For a male who is noisy, scolding and domineering do we just call him a man?

comment What is the word for a woman dominating in social family situations?
I can't help but notice that several answers so far have negative connotations, yet the question was to describe someone who, "talks lively, entertains people," not at all negative notions. Are we perhaps a little sexist here, people?

So maybe she is an uxoriator?

I think this just means she's a great hostess, but she doesn't necessarily have to take lead over her husband to achieve that.

I agree this might somewhat convey the sense that the OP is looking for, but I think its a horrible phrase as it implies that she is "the man". What's wrong with a woman domineering as a woman?

And this term contrasts with patriarch, where the male dominates.

comment Term for a roof pitch viewed from inside (Image included)
@AndyT, vaulted seems perfectly correct to me as the term refers to shape and has very little to do with height. Although your impressions may be true that vaulted ceilings often give you much more headroom than necessary.

comment phrase to mean “giving the exact answer”
This is the distinction between, "accuracy" and "precision". Your answer was accurate, but your friends was more precise.

comment What is the opposite of “steep”?
Anything more than about 45 degrees would be steep enough for a pedestrian to navigate. Many answers seem to be in regards to amounts less than maybe 30 degrees. But in your example, an incline on the order of 75 degrees would not be steep?
