    Default I dealt with a bully once

    He took a swing at me. I pushed he down the bleachers. That was the end of it.

    Ps may react differently, but I think that INTJs would do their best to avoid being passively bullied.
    I tried ignoring my tormentors, I mean I would just act like they weren't there and say/do nothing as they gave their worst and all that did was drive them into new frenzies of trying to provoke me. It is not true when adults tell children that ignoring is the best way to go. Better to do as you did and lash back.

    My daddy taught me to give them and the system chances to work propery first. After a few failures I cut out the BS and gave them a chance to either talk to me or talk to my fist. By the time I hit high school I was the one the bullies p34rd. One dumb ass in grade nine was picking on a friend of mine, I told him to fuck off, he invited me to a "friendly chat" after school. I showed up, he didn't. :SaiyanSmilie_anim:

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    If you let them step over you once, its over, they will keep riding over you till you cold cock em one day. I agree.

    Yes. I think when kids bully or mob that they aren't always looking for "reaction" but rather a chance to bond with each other in the group action of dehumanizing and excluding someone.

    They feel close in that moment of having a chosen common target and it makes them feel good. It is a social action as much as anything else.

    It is also about feeling that there is someone "less" than they are and that makes them feel better about themselves. They aren't always exactly like internet trolls who troll for sheer reaction.

    Therefore the conventional wisdom that, "don't give them a reaction and they'll move on" is false. They may not have been looking for reaction at all, but rather a target to focus bonding and venting on.

    Yeah. I personally think the platitude that violence doesn't solve anything is a crock. If someone is bullying, the best thing you can do is come down fast and hard so they know it's going to cost them. Oftentimes that's enough.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Violence - last resort, but not to be excluded.

    Yeah, I was.

    Then a very large bully a couple grades older than me said they were going to beat me up at lunch recess that day...that time I had a plan.

    After that, they didn't mess with me anymore.

    Mine was due to racism more than my personality, though the fact I was a star pupil probably didn't help.
