Bullying. Why would someone who is self-confident bully others?


I think it doesn’t make any sense. Does it mean that bullies have a poor self-esteem? They feel that, when they bully their victim they would gain a better self-image. Why they don’t know that, through bullying, they’re damaging exactly this positive self-image? Are bullies that stupid?

    Thank you for answering dashingscorpio. It sounds plausible. Kids bullied at home don't know anything better as bully at school or somewhere else around.

    :):):) Yes, you're radical: however, you're right to some degree too. When bullies cause suicides (see Amanda Todd) they deserve a penalty. No question.

    Lisa, thanks for answering. I understand bullies - in your answer - as the Nazis (or something similar). But still, when I'm better than others and bully I probably don't believe that I'm better than others... Is there something right in my thought??

    I don't know if anyone is really self-confident. I think, I'm ... to some point... :-) Ctrane, thanks for answering, yes bullies are sad individuals.

    I agree with you, because a bully's power resides in the "silence" of the deed. Once it is out in the open, there's no fun and no gain, just consequences.--Deb

    James-wolve, thank you for your answer. I would like to know if there is any medication to resolve this imbalance in the bully's psyche. Probably there isn't.
