Narcissism seems like a popular topic around here, so I found this interesting article.
All bullies are narcissists
From what I've observed, it seems to be true. The only thing that is truly a surprise to me is the description of bullies as having high-self esteem. I suppose that could be explained as the bullying behavior giving them the high self-esteem. What would be effective solutions for counteracting bullying?For the bully, the victim is what he fears that he himself might be: a loser.
It would help them to face their fear of being a loser, but part of the problem is that they cannot face that because the fear of being a loser is so strong.
