On the bullies among us

"I simply do not think that yelling, swearing, threatening or belittling will get you to the place you want to be faster than kindness, understanding, patience and a little willingness to compromise."
Rachel Nichols
And yet it all too often seems that we're surrounded by Type-A types who think nothing of yelling, swearing, threatening and belittling, often to the degree that to do so is absolutely normal to them.

How do people like this succeed? And why?

Um ... I think maybe it's because our society values product and money more than human relationships.

Which is awfully sad.

I think Patti is right.. Those that yell, assert beyond appropriateness know that its worked for them in the past... think about it, if u have someone being brassy, that would definitely make me move out of their way. I've known people like that, and its a learned behavior.. yep, it goes back to what they have witnessed from those they look up to..
