  • I usually just ignore and act like the bigger man, it always worked, that's why I was never bullied in school, cause I projected the "I don't give a fuck about what you're saying about me", so they stopped, and now if someone talks shit about me I just do the same.
    My worth isn't measured in the words of other people, it's measured in what I think I'm worth, so I couldn't care less what they think.
    This has always work cause people realize that what the other person is saying, is nonsense, cause if they see I don't care, they won't care either.
    I will only step up and confront the person if what they're saying is gonna really affect me personally, like for example telling my girlfriend that I'm cheating, or that I'm saying stuff behind her back. Stuff like that.

  • I can, but I usually avoid confrontation and conflict. I prefer to just walk away.

    • Good answer, I agree. I tend to step in if I see an injustice going on such as racism or bulling.

  • Absolutely. I don't need to pull it out often but the last time I did I walked away happy with a grown ass man crying. Didn't lay a finger on him.

  • Yes, I believe I know how to do that. Although it's restricted to certain areas only, but yes I can do that if I think it has to be done. I won't care who is in front of me, even if they are my parents, if I have to stand up for myself than I will.

  • Yes. Although usually if it's a stranger or some random dbag I don't care enough to say anything back. They're welcome to think of me as they like; their opinions don't really weigh much on my pride.

  • I can. I can stay pretty damn calm, that tends to throw a person off that your not rattled. I also have a knack for seeing a person's vulnerability.. So if the worse case scenario comes to play I can shut em down real quick. It can be pretty harsh, so I use it only as a last resort.

  • Well, normally yes because I can be a sarcastic person normally just use that to my advantage to show them how foolish they sound insulting others.

  • I don't really bother sticking up for myself unless it's absolutely necessary. Most of the time I ignore whoever is insulting me, unless it's constructive criticism. Sometimes, I can't see my own mistakes, so it's helpful if someone understands my mistakes and point it out. I get really pissed when someone else is getting hurt or abused, though.

  • I try not to get involved in "verbal warfare", but sometimes people blow things out of proportion. Especially if they disagree with you on something. Usually it's over dumb shit too.

  • Depends on the person who's insulting me.
    With most people I believe I can stick up for myself, but some are so intimidating that I become a pussy I guess. But in most cases I do try. I don't like letting people walk all over me.

  • Yes I have always stood up for what I believed in. If the other person just won't listen or the argument goes on for to long. I just say screw it. They are just going to keep being stupid and it's pointless to argue anymore. Still I will never let anyone push me around ever. Even as a little a kid I would never let anyone push me around. So I will always stand my ground even if nobody else will.

  • I thought you meant physically at first, but when I actually read your question I got excited. Physically I'm kinda weak and have never even been in a real fight. That doesn't matter anyways. I'm pretty much known for standing up for myself. Most of the boys in my school have little to no respect for females so I got bullied a bit. The thing is I'm very smart and have a way with words. I don't know how, but I have a comeback for pretty much any insult. I'm pretty good at insulting people. My friends always make fun of me because when I argue with people I insult them with a smile on my face and like the happiest voice possible. It's weird, but effective. So I don't get bullied anymore and I'm pretty much queen of the rejects. It's pretty easy for me to make friends with the weirdos because I'm a weirdo, but when they're geting bullied they always come to me because I'm always ready to deliver a verbal attack.
