compliant (adj) yielding; willing to obey or to agree to others' wishes or rules.
When you are compliant, you agree to other's wishes and demands, and do what they want you to do. 'He is liked by all because he is complaint.' This means that everyone likes him because he agrees to what they say or do. They get what they want done by him. A compliant person is very obliging.
