    Every bully I've ever observed has been an ESxx. No exceptions.

    I think the ultimate bully stereotype would be ESTP, and for victim probably INFP.

    1. What is considered to be the personality type/s associated to a bully?

    Can you rank them from 1, being the one with the strongest tendency to bully others.
    Some stereotypes:

    ESTP - beats you up and steals your lunch money bullying
    ESTJ - mocks you for being weird bullying
    ESFJ & ESFP - "mean girls" type of bullying, cattiness, spreading rumors
    ISTP - sarcastic comments under breath, mocking what seems stupid & unrealistic to them
    ENTJ - psychological warfare bullying...think Jeff on "Flipping Out"
    ENTP - general smartass behavior, putting people other people down to seem "better"
    NTs - online trolling bullying


    2. What is considered to be the personality type/s associated to the victims?

    Can you rank them from 1, being the perfect victim.
    ISFJ - they want to be accepted (SJ), can have a hard time standing up for themselves, and are sensitive. They also express emotion more openly, which can make them targets.
    ISFP - sensitive, often offbeat and attract negative attention because of it.
    ISTJ - they can be "nerd" types
    All INxx - because we are the "weirdos", right? I've never been bullied though. It just doesn't work on me.

    I got taunted for being a smart kid in elementary school so by the time I'd gotten to middle school I was pretty good at kicking ass. I reserved my ass kicking for bullies and spent the next few years of my school career bullying bullies... other than that, I fit in in any social group I wanted to fit in, but I hated other bullies and took a variety of approaches (including bribery, taunting and occasionally kicking thier asses) to teach them their lesson

    from my experience a majority of bullies were ExFJs... their bullying was emotionally driven instead of for any other reason

    I don't agree with this really.

    It's fashionable these days to talk about "co-depndency" and the rest of it - some psychologists even claim that both abusive and abused partners in a relationship can have different varieties of "Narcissistc Personality Disorder".

    It really strikes me as a worrying trend in psychology to pathologize suffering abuse.

    In many cases there really isn't much a person could reasonably be expected to do. For example if you are, like, 10 years old, and some older kids decide to threaten you with a knife for fun, and every time they see you they will give you shit, and you know they have older brothers and "connections" so you may well get it worse if you "went for help"...in that case a "normal" person, wouldn't really know what to do. That's not a sign of unhealthiness.

    We live ina society where "might makes right", we live ina heirarchical and competitive society, so someone is always going to be abused - most people, in fact, are downtrodden. I don't see this as a sign of their "unhealthiness", rather of the unhealthiness of the society.

    The only trend I've noticed (regarding type) is that bullies tend to be extroverts and victims of bullies tend to be introverts.

    That's all.

    I'm fairly sure victims are chosen by their "different" characteristics; height, weight, hair colour, etc. I've always been very short throughout my childhood. I'm approaching 19 and I'm 5'1. Of course I was teased for it. Classmates would occasionally heckle something. Although I'm not sure that counts as bullying. Sure, it was embarrassing, but I didn't really dwell on it. Yes, I'm short. Not much I can do about it, you know? No point in feeling like a victim.

    I wasn't a victim of the bitchy female hierarchy of middle school or high. I hung out with the opposite sex, mostly. I would either grub around for wildlife in the ditches, or play lego bionicle with guys. One of my female friends was really popular at the time, so I was automatically accepted by the girls. After all, if I was a friend, I must be normal, right? That was their logic, any road. They held me in surprisingly high esteem, despite how different I was.

    I suppose type could be a factor. I wasn't very reactive to heckling, but I was known for being aggressive in physical confrontations. During highschool, a jealous former best friend of my best friend at the time appeared from out of nowhere and started bullying me. As in, walking right behind me, sitting behind me in class and tugging on my hair, groping me in inappropriate areas in order to humiliate me. I reckon she's an ESXP. At one point she walked past me in a corridor and shoved me, and then I reacted by grabbing her neck and shoving her against a wall. A fight broke out, which caused an embarrassing scene. I think the bullying ended when I told my ESTP brother about it. He rallied a couple of his female friends and they just stood outside the classroom during a maths lesson, glaring at her through the window. Five minutes from the end of the lesson, they sauntered off. They didn't hang around at the end to hassle her, or anything. It was purely for psychological torment. They only wanted to worry her. Having an ESTP as an older brother has its upsides.
    Um, yeah.

    Pffft, if everyone can be a bully then has anyone seen an INFP bully? Absolutely ridiculous.

    I was a bully at one period in my life. Kind of weird seeing people say ESxP could be inclined to bullying... Awhile back, I thought I was ISFP, but I could not reconcile it with past behavior like this. ISFP's seemed too chill. So maybe that explains it.

    Anyways, I started out as a nice kid, but in the 6th grade, I kicked one of the popular kid's asses (who was a bully himself) in front of a lot of people, and kind of settled on that behavior for the next few years. I saw that being that way got attention.. I ended up being sort of popular. Bad thing was, I started screwing with people for the sake of it.. that's where the bullying came in during middle and highschool. It might have been OK if I left it at simply defending myself like I did when I was in the 6th grade, but I didn't.

    Common bullies = Any E_T_ or E__J. Occasionally ESFP or ISTP.

    Common victims = IN__, or ISFJs.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
