“There are several pieces on your blog about people who get bullied, but not on bullies themselves. I was wondering, how do you think this shows up in a chart? Most of the people I’ve run into who exhibit this behavior are very aggressive, power hungry, and lack a basic respect for other people – they treat them like objects (to be controlled). What I’m talking about is extreme and vicious, cut-throat, will not stop at anything to in type behavior. I’ve seen this in the work place, and it frequently shows up
as domination, manipulation, intimidation – your average adult bully. What’s your take on this behavior?”
Thanks for the question, it’s a good one. I have thought about it for several days and am sorry to say I have no answer. At first I thought it was because I don’t know any bullies. I have had to deal with them but it’s always been swift and I have no birth data. I guess you could say I am not interested in bullies… they bore me.
But as I thought about this some more I’ve pretty much concluded this is not something you can see in a chart. It’s sort of like mental illness. People point to this or that in a chart and offer a diagnosis but I don’t think there is anyway to tell how someone is going to use the energy they have available to them and I am a prime example.
People have free will, that is all there is to it.
