There's an article that covers this paper, i'll copy paste some important parts.

tl;dr Victims of workplace mistreatment may also be seen as bullies themselves, even if they've never engaged in such behavior, and despite exemplary performance. Bullies, on the other hand, may be given a pass if they are liked by their supervisor. There is a bias toward victim blaming.

"The results are eye-opening," Taylor says. "I think they are useful because, given all of these accounts in the media of bad behavior happening, people are often left wondering how can we blame victims, and why do we let these perpetrators off the hook, why do they go unpunished?"

:feelsStudy: @Atavistic Autist You were right when you said psychopaths succeed in today's world.

Taylor attributes the flawed decision making to cognitive biases, such as the halo effect, in which positive attributes mask negative traits, or the horns effect, in which one negative attribute casts a person in a completely negative light.

The researchers performed their work over the course of four studies. The first two studies showed through surveys of employees and supervisors that supervisors tend to view victims of bullying as being bullies themselves.

Studies three and four were experiments where participants evaluated employees based on descriptions of their work performance, as well as how they treated others and how they were treated.

They found that even when evaluators were clearly informed that a victim did not mistreat others, victims were still seen as bullies. In the fourth study, they found that
not only are victims seen as bullies despite evidence to the contrary, but also that they receive lower job performance evaluations as a result of being victimized.

:feelsUnreal: Your behavior doesn't fucking matter. Jfl at people using the just world fallacy these days, like we live in a social meritocracy

The researchers found support in all four studies that bullies were less likely to be seen as deviant when their supervisor considered them to be good performers.

:feelssus:
People get away with treating others like absolute shit. Reminds me of when a kid is bullied at school, he's beaten and mocked all day, grows up scarred and insecure. People will tell him that HIS social skills were bad and the social skills of his bullies were GOOD. Psychopaths who torture you are seen as socially apt, if not outright gifted. What does this say about society?

The study and the media article that covers it



@Selinity

@soymonkcel Didn't you argue with other colleagues about an awful bully who was seen as the good kid?

This goes to show that real-life is just High School expansion pack. Back when I was a teen I believed that as an adult, things will change for the better, and I will get a good job and have a better life than my detractors. Oh how fucking wrong was I.

Many psychopatic/narcissistic bullies use DARVO (deny, attack, and reverse victim and offender) - I think it can give also some insight in this phenomenon.

Cope. In time periods that weren't so socially alienated, psychopaths often got lynched by solidaristic townfolk, and were denounced for their tyrannical behaviors rather than enabled in them.

This happened as recently as 1981 in small town, White America:


Note that nobody in the town snitched on those who killed the veritable psychopath Rex McElroy, despite there being dozens of witnesses! They were united in action and supported his public, extrajudicial execution. His house was later burned to the ground after his degenerate family was forced to flee.

This fully explains why vigilante justice has been stigmatized along with "racism" under muh kkk propaganda, btw. Such things are unthinkable now.
Convince me that this guy was actually the aggressor and not just some ascended incel the town decided to purge because he wouldn't stay in his lane.



He was hated for dating a 12 year old girl (Elena) and married her around the time they were trying to jail him for statutory rape.

IE the type of thing an actual Chad rarely has to deal with: statutory rape laws primarily work against sub-chads who manage to romance less-shallow girls willing to give them a chance. Or maybe even just TRY to: we don't know if they actually fucked.

It's entirely possible that bitter foids who hated Elena just besmirched her reputation (lied and said she had premarital sex with Rex) so she had no other prospects but to make truth of the lie and marry the guy she might've otherwise ended it with once a gigachad came along. Back then your virtue/reputation sort of mattered in terms of marriage prospects.

Elena tried to identify the gunman who killed her husband, does that sound like something a victim who hated him would do once he was gone?

If she was actually a rape victim or abused or something she would be celebrating this not trying to bring her husband's murderers to justice.

Here's the Romaine Henry who accused Rex McElrowy of shooting him with a shotgun:


Not much to look at due to age but I'd be interested to see how Chadlike he was in older photographs.

Why should I trust that guy's side of things though?

I realize sometimes "bullies" are truly bullies and sometimes they might face justice from good people, but I'm very hesitant to accept any narrative like this nowadays since more often than not the accepted and propogated narratives tend to be 180 degrees from the truth.

Sounds like school.

People are nothing more than animals, they do a downright malicious act then try to justify said act to themselves and if they can't justify it they'll simply forgive and forget "my past is my past"

School never ends despite what people tell you. Office politics is just school 2.0

School and work are just part of life. And life is cruel, very much blackpilled.

just a douchebag coworker. shitty construction work culture where yelling and degrading apprentices is normal and you're expected to put up with it as if it's the military. Pretended to be my friend then would shit on me at work. Would shit on everything about me. Call me a pussy for ever questioning safety of what we're doing. he was personal friends with the boss too. Before him I had to work with 2 pack a day smoking alcoholic scumbag who was an asshole too. I asked the boss for a transfer but he couldn't give me one so I quit.

it's extremely hard to swallow, that being bullied by charming and attractive people effectively works as a valid value judgement, making others judge you and rate your performance more poorly, even if the initial superficial reaction is to defend you from the bullying

giga over

Not even objective evidence will change their mind. Halo is everything. Popularity is everything.

i can't get this image out of my head, of the 'good people' coming in to check in on you and make sure you're alright and not too upset about what the bullies said, then feeling disgusted and quickly leaving to go socialize with the popular bullies :lul:
