How to avoid Bullying

Don’t be bullied in the work place, learn how to assert yourself!

There is a very simple thread to the theory I am using to define bullying. Bullying is one specific behaviour, whatever scale it happens on or in whichever style it is delivered. All acts of bullying share some simple characteristics. My job here is to define those characteristics to guide you in this book’s most crucial task, which is so you can learn to identify when you are being bullied.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, as you might not believe me. Bullying is not personal. It has the pernicious ability to seem to be very personal, as the bully requires a scapegoat and therefore has become adept at one thing only: to identify what someone is sensitive about. The only way they find these sensitive issues is by using the scatter gun approach. There is nothing too sophisticated in a bully’s research methods. The lines of attack are dictated by the sensitivities of the receiver, not by the opinions of the deliverer. Jealousy often plays a part in the motivation for someone to bully another person.

People say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. I say bullying is the lowest form of communication. In my book (this one) bullying falls below pulling faces in the communication leader board. It can be easier to recognise characteristics in other people when they exist in ourselves. Everyone who gets bullied will display bullying behaviour. I would give inanimate objects a very hard time when I was younger. If I had thought about how unpleasant I was being to a table or a door frame that had just jumped out at me and bruised my arm, I might have been able to tell when people were being unpleasant to me.

Had UK Government Put Public Interests First, Might We Have Averted Disaster

Boris Johnson’s Government’s focus seems to have been on big corporation interests from the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, thinking they could “flatten the curve” after contact tracing and quarantining had been dropped. After John Newton predicted a million cases, the government abandoned its contact tracing in favour of a 3-4 month national lockdown. Could […]

Creativity Will Always Be Important for Humanity

I’ve felt for years the western world, particularly, is making it increasingly difficult for visual thinkers to survive. Creative people tend to be solution finders, problem solvers, thinkers, observers, investigators and inventors. This might mean that creative people design their own processes into their work. Therefore following a new unfamiliar process on its own is […]

Voyage of Discovery about Nutrition

Almost finished Tim Spector’s book Spoonfed, which is a detailed overview of human nutrition from a GP and nutritional scientist’s perspective. If only every GP needed to study nutrition as Tim Spector has. Spector’s book demystifies every area of the modern diet from gluten, animal and plant protein, gluten, fibre, caffeine, alcohol, water and shows […]

We Must Keep Our Wits About Us

I watched #Brexit – An Uncivil War on Netflix last night and thought: how easy society is to manipulate. How can we feel ourselves being boiled like frogs? How did Michael Gove, Dominic Cummings end up in parliament and Nigel Farage become an MEP. The reasonable thinking that existed up til 2016, fought for by […]

Understanding Adults with Dyspraxia in Education and at Work

This morning I had a conversation with a tutor that left me feeling somewhat alienated and disorientated. Conveying how I work to plan my progress to someone who doesn’t think as I do takes a huge amount of energy and feels unrewarding and unproductive.   Today, a Google search for anything about strategies for work […]
