    I am guessing almost everybody has bullied someone unintentionally but few in a truly malicious intentional way.

    Yeah, I feel like this has to be true, right? But I have a hard time with this question then. Like, how do I know?
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I think I was 'bullied' by an ENFP 7w8 for a brief period. The ENTP 7w8 was much more douchey and malicious though.

    No, I never have, but I have tackled a few bullies and brought them down a size or two.

    To my great shame, yes I have. In sixth grade, I transferred to a new school. It was full of kids who had been kicked out of other schools, and those kids were pretty mean. There was one kid fatter than me, and he also had bad personal hygiene, but he was incredibly smart and actually a really nice guy, just awkward. He was the constant target of the rest of the class. I was so terrified of those kids and so grateful not to be at the bottom of the social ladder myself that I did not protect him as I should have. I remember at one point the entire class was learning some medieval dance to perform at a festival, and my one friend and I giggled about visibly avoiding pairing with him. A teacher took us aside and I will never forget her admonishment. She told us that she knew we thought of ourselves as kind people, but that we were not being kind to this boy. It really struck a chord with me and I've been much more aware of bullying and such ever since.

    Not always aware enough, though. Bullying is insidious. If it weren't, then I'm pretty sure almost everyone would admit to it. There is a strong sense that the bullied person brought it on themselves by refusing to conform, which sounds ridiculous and everyone would condemn it if it were always easy to recognize that dynamic from the inside.

    No, I never did as that would have required a social group or an understanding of social nuances that I never achieved.

    Instead I was on the receiving end from the moment I entered k until I left that school system in 8th grade. A fresh start in a new country worked wonders.

    I remember bullying one kid growing up. We later ended up being friends.

    Did he agree to that on his own volition?

    I guess so? I guess we'll never really know! Maybe he tried to be nice to me for the sole purpose of not being bullied and being able to drink milk with his lunch.

    He probably still has nightmares of kyuuei circa 1998, and instilling a great fear in him, to where even the mention of your name sends a pulsating wave of terror to travel throughout his circulatory system like city traffic.

    You walk past him, and he catches a glimpse of your eyes for a second, and begins to scream internally till his lungs collapses, yet deep down knowing it's imperative he maintain his outer resolve. You turn, grab cheese sandwich (with the crusts cut off) tenderly crafted with love by his mother, and throw it at the wall behind him. You shatter the stillness in the air, and the cafeteria erupts into a frenzy, like a crowded Roman coliseum, intensely fixated at the spectacle, anxiously waiting for the first drop of blood to trickle down to the ground, all in an effort to quell their insatiable blood lust.

    You then proceed to bring into the light all of his innermost secrets, exposing the hidden scars of shame and betrayal brought forth by his Father's recent infidelity, as the lunchroom echoes with the sounds the unempathic laughter of his classmates, reverberating from the walls like shards of jagged ice piercing what sense purity remains in his soul.
