Study co-author Todd Kashdan, a George Mason University psychology
professor, explained the characteristics of a bully with SAD. "If a
bully fears being evaluated by other people, uncomfortable starting or
maintaining conversations, lacks adequate skills for forming or
retaining relationships and is anxious around other people for those
reasons, these thoughts feelings and motives might explain why they are
hostile, aggressive and defiant.
"If you think about it, a great strategy to avoid being rejected is to
reject everyone else first. This allows for the illusion of being
accepted, of being in control, of being the king lion or queen bee."
For treatment, Kashdan said the key is determining what motivates the
"If they have antisocial tendencies, where they lack empathy and
remorse, we would proceed very differently in attempting to help the
perpetrator change their behavior than if they were socially anxious,
where they lash out at other people to avoid being rejected themselves.
"Bullies are not a homogeneous group of people with the same goals. If
we can help them satisfy their need to belong and feel connected, their
need for bullying will decline."
