ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at a study that found that sixth-grade bullies tend to be popular and psychologically strong. Their victims, however, are miserable, lonely, unstable and socially marginalized. These findings fly in the face of previous research that has suggested that bullies actually suffer from depression and low self-esteem.
