Psychological bullying - what is it?

Psychological bullying can be defined as any intentional and targeted mental violence.

Sometimes people may feel that they have been mistreated because something happened that caused them emotional harm, but this would generally qualify as bullying only if it was done purposefully, especially with malicious intent.

Psychological bullying - what is it?

Reasons

People have many reasons to bully others, including personal gain, revenge, and self-esteem issues. Those who suffer psychological intimidation often have emotional problems that can continue for many years after the violence occurs.

One of the most common tactics used during psychological intimidation is to personally attack people. When this happens, the bully can joke about some weakness or physical deficiency in the person. This is often done in front of other people for Comedy purposes or as a way to raise a bully over his victim in the eyes of his peers.

Another thing hooligans often do is target the issue of differences between people. For example, a bully can make fun of a person's religious beliefs or race. Usually, a bully will rely on this tactic only if he can find some obvious way to distinguish the victim from most of his peers.

Psychological bullying - what is it?

Some bullies choose a more indirect way of harming the victims. They can rely on rumors and hints, and can often even spread deliberate lies about someone. In some cases, this can be done without the knowledge of the victim, when the bully tries his best to keep his identity secret.

Children are generally familiar with the problems of both physical and psychological abuse. In adults, physical bullying still occurs, but the psychological type is usually more common. This is partly due to the fact that the penalties for physical violence often become more severe for people as they grow older, and prison is possible.

Physical and mental abuse

Psychological bullying - what is it?

These two types of violence often go hand in hand. In fact, physical violence can almost be seen as a kind of psychological abuse, because it also has a traumatic psychological effect.

In addition, most physical bullies rely on the same tactics as psychological bullies to further torture their victims in addition to their physical attacks.

What usually separates them is that while physical intimidation almost always includes a mental component, psychological intimidation can potentially occur at all without any physical component, and in many situations it does.
