It feels good to be in charge and have others do what you want. If you do not have influence, you have power, and physical force of bully does this.

Usually people bully because they themselves have extremely low self esteem. Picking on someone else usually gives them some sense of satisfaction because they like to make others feel bad so they themselves can feel better. They thrive on negative emotions.


Answer by  pilot (204)

There are several reasons why some people bully others. The first and obvious one is because they are taught that it is acceptable by their parents or friends. The second is that they are insecure with themselves and their own self-image and they make themselves feel better about themselves by making fun of what they see as weaknesses in others.
