Many may think that bullying just relates to the school yard bully who pushes the smaller or unpopular kid around, yet the truth is that bullying and victimisation comes in many guises.
Types of Bullying
The Physical bully – action orientated and often includes hitting or physical violence or damage to property.
Sadistic or narcissistic bully – often completely lacking in empathy and often appear to have high self esteem but cannot take criticism.
Verbal bully – uses words to hurt or humiliate another person. The effects can often be more devastating than physical bullying as the lack of visible scars may lead others to dismiss allegations of bullying.
Impulsive bully – the bullying is not planned but more spontaneous and opportunistic.
Imitative bully – this type of bully is very much influenced by the surrounding social climate and likes to follow others and can also be manipulative.
Stressed or unintentional bully – this bully reacts badly to stress or confusing change and will relieve their stress by victimising others.
Cyber bullying – this is often reported in today’s internet society and can include hateful emails, verbal bullying or ridicule on social media and cyber stalking.
Corporate bullying – victimisation may occur within the workplace with employees being used as scapegoats, singled out for constant unwarranted criticism or undue pressure or restrictions put upon them. In practice, it can involve heavy-handed tactics like physical intimidation, humiliating public reprimands, excess criticism and ridiculing beliefs or personal characteristics. It can also be more subtle, such as failing to give credit when it is due, delegating only menial tasks, nitpicking, name-calling, excluding someone or giving them ‘the silent treatment’, playing practical jokes on the same person, blocking job opportunities and spreading rumours.
Very often a single bullying or victimisation attack can scar and cause loss of confidence in dealing with what was before a simple action. Prolonged bullying can cause psychological problems such as depression or anxiety.
