    I was bullied when I was a kid. It changed me drastically, made me shut down in my own world and give me the ability of not trusting anyone, it made me 'stronger' to the point of emotional numbness. What Kyrielle said about girls being wolves is very true, though curiously, the most cruel words someone ever said to me came from a boy's mouth.

    Anyway, when I was in my early teens, I changed school. Then, the roles reversed. It's not a part of my life that makes me very proud, but I can say that... somehow I understand bullies, because I had been on their side once. It's something very different, and maybe the others didn't see with the same depth I did, but, believe me, bullies are to be pitied too.

    Default Really?

    On this topic there are no intp's to speak of. i think. The best way to nail a bully is to put them on a level playing field. Emmediatly find their inconsistancies, and believe me they have many, then exploit them. Examples are stuff like their daddy has alot of money so you call them (daddy's money). To those women out there, just ask them if thats their pre-midlife crisis talking.
    An overwelming fear could be imminant at the time but let the truth be spoken and a path will become transparent. Get in their head.
    By the looks of what i just wrote, it's got entp splattered all over it. Hmm

    I've been bullied and I have bullied others. This was Junior High in a nut shell: Lord of the Flies with vending machines.

    I bullied the bullies who bullied the bullies. Then I chained them all together to pull my juggernaut through the gates of Hell where I battled the jötnar and lost my right hand to Fenris, the World Devourer.

    Well you can always act like The Count of Monte Cristo, and plot out your vengeance 8 years after it happens. That way, by this time they probably have a family and a loved one. If not wait longer. And 7 year gap allows one to be less likely to be suspected in w/e crime.

    When I am bullied here, I am invariably told, "It's just a joke".

    This is the way bullies hide their bullying. They hide it behind a joke.

    And this is a very good technique as many here hide their immaturity behind a jokey mask - it almost seems reflexive.

    And those who have yet to discover their own voice and style, bitterly resent those who have.

    And it is this immature, bitter resentment that leads to bullying.

    And this kind of resentment is better described in French as ressentiment.

    And it is so ugly, it must be disguised as a joke.

    And calling it a joke puts the victim off guard.

    But such jokey behaviour is the norm here.

    It provides the perfect cover for bullying.

    Bullying is in large part why I act, look, and behave the way I do.
