Checklist: Are You a Bully?

by Saoirse O'Mara

Have you ever wondered if you are a bully towards other people, maybe unconsciously, without even realising it? How can you notice that you are? Here is a checklist:

  • Do you snap at people?

  • Do you complain if you have to wait somewhere, e.g. in the supermarket?

  • Do you make jokes about other people?

  • Do you talk about other people behind their backs?

  • Do you order other people around?

These above are all characteristics of bullies. I bet everyone of us has done at least one of these things every now and then. However, if you know that this is bullying, you can watch yourself in the future and avoid bullying others anymore.

Let's all do something against bullying by beginning with ourselves!
