    There is a bullying forum at:
    http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/grou...nline/messages

    I have introduced Personality Types into the discussion. It seems that all sorts can bully or be bullied.

    However, the worst ones (my view) are ESTJ and ESFJ. The INXP is less likely to notice until the bullying gets very severe. Other bullying types identified have been ENTJ and ENFJ and even ISFJ (by Poison Pen) and INTJ (by secret underhand conniving).

    So far ISTJ and INFJ have been moderately OK, although I suspect at least one ISFJ.

    If the ESTP decided to bully (and they may do it using agents) they are likely to be very dangerous. I supect two of these using a ESFJ and ISFJ to do the dirty work on their behalf.

    I was never bullied at any point in my upbringing.

    It's possible that it was due to my always being the "new kid" every time we moved, though.

    In high school, some of my classmates told me about halfway through the year that they thought I was a psycho at first cuz I didn't talk much for the first few months of class.

    I was quiet but very assertive. I think people were curious about me. Sometimes, a brave jock would try to engage me and I'd brush him off. I definitely wasn't bullied. Not part of any group either.

He then said that being treated unfairly probably lead them to being more T and valuing justice over anything.

    I can’t find anything that in the literature that mentions this, so where the heck is he getting this (out of his ass I presume). Also, I would think that being picked on could possibly make you more of a feeler and in touch with the emotions of others because of how much emotional crap bullies can put you through. Then again, his argument makes sense to me, so have at it. What was your type and when you were a kid were you a bully, a victim, a bystander, etc…
    Nah, I don't think so. I had a bully for all of 1 week in the third grade... until I whipped her fat ass. However, even before then, in preschool, I was obsessed with fairness and equality. I didn't have older siblings to bully me, so that's not it.
    So nice try, but no. That may be the reason you can't find anything supporting that theory in the literature.

    He went into his pants, cut some of his pubes and sprinkled them on my head. I was absolutely stuck on stupid and started sputtering. I threw a piece of paper of him, called him a bitch ass bitch and pouted the rest of the class.
    They only did this once right? That was definitely mean, and if he kept doing it, I would say you had a bullying experience.

    I had a guy wipe his nuts with a napkin, and then my mouth with it. He only did it once, and annoying as it was, I didn't considering him a bully. I didn't like him. But he was more a troublemaker than a bully.

    I think bullying is when someone gets into a routine of picking on a particular person.

    mmh actually if I take this definition then I was a bully too.. I constantly "stole" stuff from a certain female classmate and she hated it but I kept doing it.. I was a 11 year old stupid, but I didn't think I was really hurting her.. maybe I was.. someone should have just told me .-.

    anyway I stopped when on a bad day THE WHOLE CLASS ganged up on me, stole all my stuff and started throwing it around......... that really felt like bullying, I almost cried because in truth I'm a very vulnerable person... bastards! But I deserved it lol..

    I think this is true. My INTJ dh says that he was bullied in school until he grew his hair long, adopted a heavy metal style of dressing, and learned to act crazy. He says people will leave you alone if they think you're crazy. Plus he grew big. That brings up another interesting thing to ponder - what it's like to have been bullied as a kid but big and tough as an adult. Inside, is there always going to be a vulnerable, bullied kid? I think there is.

    By God, I would've killed that kid (not literally of course, but at least inflicted some form of intense pain). I remember in the ninth grade this older kid thought it would be funny to toss some ranch salad dressing (they served it in little cups) at a couple of freshmen tables, and some happened to have landed on my backpack. The general grossness and insolence of it made me so angry that I got up and threw a cafeteria chair back his way. Being a generally quiet girl with good grades, all I received was a warning and some slight admonishment. He got a suspension (not that I think the punishment necessarily matched the crime, but it was satisfying nonetheless).

    Would they bully, though; or give the cold shoulder?

    This would be very interesting to hear about. Any former victims of bullying that grew up to be huge and or mean looking? What do you think of it?

    The only reason I started this topic is because my INTP friend and I observed this young kid, that we really like, in our communitty being bullied and wanted to give him some good advice. Then next thing you know, we are disscussing the kids type, guessing he is an INTJ (14 years old) but who knows, and wondering how to do him a favor.

    Eventually, I just scared the crap out of the little 17 year old picking on him, but I kinda felt like a bully because the kid was really seriously trembling when I got him. I did not hurt him or anything, I just grabbed him and barked all kinds of orders at him and other scary stuff, but the kid was really shook up. The bullies dad is my dads friend, so it didn't get too bad or anything, but I hope I don't cause any negative emotional effects in the bully, or cause backlash for the other kid.

    I don't know... but anyway, that is why I wanted to hear some bullying perpictives and thank you for all who shared.
