According to Psychology Today, Bullying is a distinctive pattern of harming and humiliating others, specifically those who are in some way smaller, weaker, younger or in any way more vulnerable than the bully.
Bullying is not garden-variety aggression; it is a deliberate and repeated attempt to cause harm to others of lesser power. It’s a very durable behavioral style, largely because bullies get what they want—at least at first. Bullies are made, not born, and it happens at an early age, if the normal aggression of 2-year-olds isn’t handled well.
This bad experience can happen in schools, campus, workplace, streets or anywhere else.
So, how can people deal with it? How can we stop a bully?
In this video, Brooks Gibbs explains bullying in the most simplistic terms: Dominance behavior. He provides a simple solution to bullying as well: Don’t get upset.
