The Psychology of Being Bullied

We will explore the reasons why later on in this article, but most frequently, those who bully others are looking to gain a feeling of power, purpose and control over you.

The easiest way of doing this is to focus on something that is unique about you – either preying on or creating new insecurity with an intent to hurt you either physically or emotionally.

What happens is, we, as the people experiencing bullying, start to internalise it and we become self-critical. We want to understand the reasons why we are being targeted and we start to blame ourselves.

As a result, we try to change or mask that unique characteristic in order to avoid the bullying. We dye our hair, bleach our skin, date people we aren’t interested in and cover up our bodies like they are something to be ashamed of.

It starts to affect our behaviour and the ways in which we see ourselves, which in turn, can go on to impact both our mental and physical health.

The way we see bullying is all wrong. It isn’t because we are different in some way.

The Real Reasons Why People Bully Others

In a recent Ditch the Label study, we spoke to 7,347 people about bullying. We asked respondents to define bullying and then later asked if, based on their own definition, they had ever bullied anybody. 14% of our overall sample, so that’s 1,239 people, said yes. What we then did was something that had never been done on this scale before; we asked them intimate questions about their lives, exploring things like stress and trauma, home lives, relationships and how they feel about themselves.

In fact, we asked all 7,347 respondents the same questions and then compared the answers from those who had never bullied, those who had bullied at least once and those who bully others daily. This then gave us very strong, scientific and factual data to identify the real reasons why people bully others.

It also scientifically proves that the reason people get bullied is never, contrary to popular belief, because of the unique characteristics of the person experiencing the bullying. So, why do people bully?

Stress and Trauma:

Our data shows that those who bully are far more likely than average to have experienced a stressful or traumatic situation in the past 5 years. Examples include their parents/guardians splitting up, the death of a relative or the gaining of a little brother or sister.

It makes sense because we all respond to stress in very different ways. Some of us use positive behaviours, such as meditation, exercise and talking therapy – all designed to relieve the stress.

Others use negative behaviours such as bullying, violence and alcohol abuse, which temporarily mask the issues but usually make them worse in the long-term.

The research shows that some people simply do not know how to positively respond to stress and so default to bullying others as a coping mechanism.

Aggressive Behaviours:

66% of the people who had admitted to bullying somebody else were male. Take a minute to think about how guys are raised in our culture and compare that to the ways in which girls are raised. The moment a guy starts to show any sign of emotion, he’s told to man up and to stop being a girl.

For girls, it’s encouraged that they speak up about issues that affect them.

For guys, it’s discouraged and so they start to respond with aggressive behaviours, such as bullying, as a way of coping with issues that affect them. This is why guys are more likely than girls to physically attack somebody or to commit crimes. It isn’t something they are born with, it’s a learned behaviour that is actively taught by society using dysfunctional gender norms and roles.

Low Self-Esteem:

In order to mask how they actually feel about themselves, some people who bully focus attention on someone else. They try to avoid any negative attention directed at them by deflecting. But know they might look in the mirror at home and hate the way they look.

There is so much pressure to live up to beauty and fitness standards that we are taught to compare ourselves to others, instead of embracing our own beauty.

They’ve Been Bullied:

Our research shows that those who have experienced bullying are twice as likely to go on and bully others. Maybe they were bullied as kids in the past, or maybe they are being bullied now.

Often it’s used as a defence mechanism and people tend to believe that by bullying others, they will become immune to being bullied themselves. In fact, it just becomes a vicious cycle of negative behaviours.

Difficult Home Life:

1 in 3 of those who bully people daily told us that they feel like their parents/guardians don’t have enough time to spend with them. They are more likely to come from larger families and are more likely to live with people other than their biological parents.

There are often feelings of rejection from the very people who should love them unconditionally. They are also much more likely to come from violent households with lots of arguments and hostility.

Low Access to Education:

Without access to education, hate-based conversation directed at others may be the norm. They may not understand what hate speech is and why speaking about people in a derogatory way is not appropriate.

Relationships:

Finally, those who bully are more likely to feel like their friendships and family relationships aren’t very secure. In order to keep friendships, they might be pressured by their peers to behave in a certain way.

They are more likely to feel like those who are closest to them make them do things that they don’t feel comfortable doing and aren’t very supportive or loving.

  • Why do people bully?

    Bullying is always the consequence of feeling not worthy, feeling of shame, being afraid of looking weak etc. Bless you guys and good night from Norway. Bullying is also the result of an upbringing without any discipline. I would have to disagree with the majority of these reasons.

    According to our latest research, 1 in 2 people have experienced bullying in some form in the last 12-months. And trust us when we say, we know how difficult it can be to go through it, especially if you don’t fully understand the psychology of bullying.

    As a result, we try to change or mask that unique characteristic in order to avoid the bullying. We dye our hair, bleach our skin, date people we aren’t interested in and cover up our bodies like they are something to be ashamed of.

    It starts to affect our behaviour and the ways in which we see ourselves, which in turn, can go on to impact both our mental and physical health.

    The way we see bullying is all wrong. It isn’t because we are different in some way.

    The Real Reasons Why People Bully Others

    In a recent Ditch the Label study, we spoke to 7,347 people about bullying. We asked respondents to define bullying and then later asked if, based on their own definition, they had ever bullied anybody. 14% of our overall sample, so that’s 1,239 people, said yes. What we then did was something that had never been done on this scale before; we asked them intimate questions about their lives, exploring things like stress and trauma, home lives, relationships and how they feel about themselves.

    In fact, we asked all 7,347 respondents the same questions and then compared the answers from those who had never bullied, those who had bullied at least once and those who bully others daily. This then gave us very strong, scientific and factual data to identify the real reasons why people bully others.

    It also scientifically proves that the reason people get bullied is never, contrary to popular belief, because of the unique characteristics of the person experiencing the bullying. So, why do people bully?

    Stress and Trauma:

    Our data shows that those who bully are far more likely than average to have experienced a stressful or traumatic situation in the past 5 years. Examples include their parents/guardians splitting up, the death of a relative or the gaining of a little brother or sister.

    It makes sense because we all respond to stress in very different ways. Some of us use positive behaviours, such as meditation, exercise and talking therapy – all designed to relieve the stress.

    Others use negative behaviours such as bullying, violence and alcohol abuse, which temporarily mask the issues but usually make them worse in the long-term.

    The research shows that some people simply do not know how to positively respond to stress and so default to bullying others as a coping mechanism.

    Aggressive Behaviours:

    66% of the people who had admitted to bullying somebody else were male. Take a minute to think about how guys are raised in our culture and compare that to the ways in which girls are raised. The moment a guy starts to show any sign of emotion, he’s told to man up and to stop being a girl.

    For girls, it’s encouraged that they speak up about issues that affect them.

    For guys, it’s discouraged and so they start to respond with aggressive behaviours, such as bullying, as a way of coping with issues that affect them. This is why guys are more likely than girls to physically attack somebody or to commit crimes. It isn’t something they are born with, it’s a learned behaviour that is actively taught by society using dysfunctional gender norms and roles.

    Low Self-Esteem:

    In order to mask how they actually feel about themselves, some people who bully focus attention on someone else. They try to avoid any negative attention directed at them by deflecting. But know they might look in the mirror at home and hate the way they look.

    There is so much pressure to live up to beauty and fitness standards that we are taught to compare ourselves to others, instead of embracing our own beauty.

    They’ve Been Bullied:

    Our research shows that those who have experienced bullying are twice as likely to go on and bully others. Maybe they were bullied as kids in the past, or maybe they are being bullied now.

    Often it’s used as a defence mechanism and people tend to believe that by bullying others, they will become immune to being bullied themselves. In fact, it just becomes a vicious cycle of negative behaviours.

    Difficult Home Life:

    1 in 3 of those who bully people daily told us that they feel like their parents/guardians don’t have enough time to spend with them. They are more likely to come from larger families and are more likely to live with people other than their biological parents.

    There are often feelings of rejection from the very people who should love them unconditionally. They are also much more likely to come from violent households with lots of arguments and hostility.

    Low Access to Education:

    Without access to education, hate-based conversation directed at others may be the norm. They may not understand what hate speech is and why speaking about people in a derogatory way is not appropriate.

    Relationships:

    Finally, those who bully are more likely to feel like their friendships and family relationships aren’t very secure. In order to keep friendships, they might be pressured by their peers to behave in a certain way.

    They are more likely to feel like those who are closest to them make them do things that they don’t feel comfortable doing and aren’t very supportive or loving.

1 Tip to Feel Better
United States

My passion is to help people overcome feeling "stuck" in unhealthy patterns by facilitating real, healthy changes through self-discovery and practical applications.

Bullies act to assert some dominance over others because it makes them feel better about themselves and their choices. They bully you to improve their self-esteem by suggesting they are better than you. Of course, someone who is bullying you is not better than you. They are probably insecure, and it's unfortunate they haven't discovered another way to comfort themselves.

Bullying is often an expression of the bully's self confidence, or lack there of. Bullying is often used as a mechanism of escape from the difficulties of one's life by creating difficulties in another person's life that the bully controls, due to the fact that the bully's own difficulties are seemingly uncontrollable.

Bullyng has a lot of reasons. But the most common one isn't about you, but about them. They need to feel important, to feel like they are in control and are better than everyone else, so they choose to treat a person like nothing. Bullies are the weak, and the bullied are the strong ones.

I Think people bully because they have nothing else to do with their life, so they get amusement by bullying.

Its never about you! It is always about the bully... Bullys bully people who are better than them, people who have something they dont have... And always remember people who talk behind your back are where they belong... Behinde you

It has nothing to do with you. They are insecure about themselves and are using you as an outlet for this.

Bullies are trouble-minded people that are experiencing issues in their personal lives and that do not know how to properly solve them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you and being bullied is something you should not take onto yourself.

They do not bully you for your faults. They bully you because its an outlet for themselves. It gets better.

Some of the reasons why bullying takes place include institutional and cultural causes as well as social and family issues. The personal history of someone who bullies others is also a reason why they do so. It is not uncommon for kids to bully other kids in order to feel like they have some power in this world.

Because they are selfish, they have nothing better to do and target people unfairly and cruely. Don't let them dominate you!

Because they are weak and they see you as an easy target. They use you to make themselves feel better and its wrong but they don't realize it and the worst part is, is that they won't they are a bully until they finally stop being one. So they spend their days harassing others to lift up their own spirits. Which truly they probably have many insecurities and this is what they do to cope with them. No matter how wrong it is they believe it is ok and nothing is wrong with a little teasing. And anyone tears shed by the bullied is, in their mind, just plain over dramatic. So this gives them more and more leverage over someone and no one sees a way to end it because they have built up this wall of defense. And this wall of defense just keeps on shooting down anyone in sight. Breaking them down into pieces and destroying who they are. So when they bully you, its not because of anything you are doing wrong. Its actually the complete opposite. They see you as more than them and they can not handle this. So they must shoot you down before you shoot them down.

They bully you because they are jealous of you. They want to have your life and they are upset that they don't.

I think every bully has a different motive. Some bullies may be jealous or upset with themselves. Others may be going through a difficult time and want attention or just don't know how to deal with their situation or emotions.

People bully sometimes because of doubt, sadness, and even depression. The harm caused makes them laugh, and even point at you.

Because they have nothing better to do with their time. Or they have problems in their own life and they want to take it out on the first person they see.

some people bully because they cant handle their own emotions and could possibly be having problems in their own life so choose to lash out on other people without thinking what cimpact it has on others lifes either that or they are jealous of you... stand up ignore them and try carry on in your life i know it is hard but once they think it isnt affecting you and your not bothered they will stop xxx

Some people bully because they have things or problems they are going through that then they bring it out on you! There is nothing wrong with you! You are AMAZING!!:)

Because they feel bad about themselves and they think hurting you will make them feel better about themselves

Bullying is normally caused from the bully having problems of they're own, causing them to take it out on others.

People bully for several reasons, the main reasons being that they themselves have low self esteem, or are dealing with problems at home. They take their frustrations out on others. :)

Many people bully because of their past. Some of the worst bullies have been through the worst. You never know what anyone is going through. Sometimes they release their anger, frustration, and/or sadness through giving it to others to either release it or make someone feel what they feel.

Look it's being the fundamental law of nature that powerful dominates the timid !! They do bully you because you do allow them. In my opinion The time they come to bully you must answer to them with complete energy so that they dare not to disturb you again.

They bully you because you're high class. If you weren't they would bother. Don't feel to bad about being bullied, just pity them as they keep you on your pedalstool by keeping you relevant.

Bullying is a behaviour, it is something people learn. Bullies may also be bullied themselves, or they were bullied at one time or another in their lifetime. People bully because it makes them feel superior to others. They might get power and strength from bullying others. People bully to get attention. They think that it makes them popular, or that bullying may be a way to fit in. Bullying doesn't make someone popular or cool, it just makes them mean. People who bully are often scared about something about themselves, so they try to scare others to hide their feelings or pick on others so they won't get picked on first.

Because you get bullied. Don't tolerate such nonsense under any circumstances! You need to stand for yourself. Once they get to know that you have a voice too and they cannot intimidate you so easily, they might back off themselves.

They feel weak, inferior and inadequate, so they bully others to prove their strength, superiority and power. They feed off the energy of other people's fear and intimidation, and steal power from others in order to feel more powerful.

Its because they are jealous of you and envy you for what you have ad what they want. Its also because they are being abused at home and when they get to school they seek power by picking on smaller kids to make them feel better about themselves. Bulling shouldn't happen in schools but they happen more then they should. Stick with a group of friends that will help you. Cause bullies don"t like to fight bigger groups. Instead they want to bully the person individually because it makes them feel better and stronger due to them trying to hid what they actually feel.

They can bully you for many different cause like thinking your more approachable and other aspects too.
