    I typically stood up for other kids (to the point of interposing myself when someone was trying to bully them), but I did once stupidly play "keep away" with someone else's sneaker while he was crying and yelling for it back, right before one of the throws ended up losing the shoe in the pool.

    About right then, my dad showed up, beat my butt, and that was the end of that.

    Not sure why I did it. I remember being caught up in the moment. I think I also would have felt guilty afterwards, anyway, even if my dad had not walloped me good for it.

    I was bullied a lot more myself, since I was in band and was the class smarty. I remember once when I had crutches in middle school, the other kids would take my crutch and pass it to the other end of the room and/or take off the rubber cap on one of them and do some XXX things with it and not give it back. If I didn't get the highest grades in class, people would make fun of me; and if I did get the highest grade, they'd also make fun of me.

    I did not bully nor was I bullied.
    I'm sure I threw a mean name out here & there, as was done to me as well, but I never targeted anyone & was never targeted. To me, bullying is more like repeated targeting of a person or a very escalated incident if it's isolated. I never engaged in that. I was pretty much a loner though.

    Everyone else covered the philosomophizin' of bullying, so I'll leave that alone and answer the question.


    No, but I defended myself by countering in disproportionate ways, usually unexpectedly or in unexpected ways. That kept everyone away from me, for good and for bad; and so I didn't have anyone to bully or a peer group to impress through bullying anyway.

    A very minor, but very much characteristic, example -- There were some bologna-hecklers at one of my temporary schools (new kid, blah blah etc.). I was once passively and contentedly sitting down in the hallway, when one of the more insecure, aloof kids, who'd never bothered me before, said some such-and-such at me as he was walking on by. I immediately and silently spit right at his feet in the hallway. He got the message.


    I remember some folks in high school demanding that I do their homework for them, and I don't think they expected me to refuse; I called their bluffs. I'm pretty sure that in one instance or more I did it for them and got them poor marks.

    I also challenged quite a few people to fights. Nobody called my bluffs, either

    I don't think I have bullied. I was on the receiving end so much during my school years, it wasn't really an option. I've said nasty things to people, mostly in self-defence (or as a pre-emptive strike) to people that were bullying me. There are a few times I can remember being unkind to innocent kids too, though - which I remember vividly with guilt.

    I am also ashamed at how I stood by and let others be bullied in front of me. I should have done more to stop it considering how horrible I knew it felt. I think I was just glad it wasn't happening to me and just kept my head down so as not to draw any further attacks in my direction. You sort of end up like a dog that's been beaten so much, that it just cowers in fear.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    I was too shy and timid to even consider bullying to be an option.

    I was, however, bullied a little bit. I recall a neighbor girl not liking me and throwing a worm in my hair as I was getting on the school bus when I was in first grade.
    I suppose I was a little weird as a kid.

    I still have bullies in my adult life. Some people just never grow up. Most of my bullies have been ESTPs. Mostly females. My current bully at my workplace is indecipherable. I can't seem to place her type. Nor why she dislikes me so much.

    I'm shocked to see that some INFP's have bullied others.

    I tended to be the person who was much too open to believing in the good intentions of other people, and as such, I was a pretty good target for bullies. The only problem though was that I wasn't a weak victim, at all.
