This post shared with us on Facebook from Stop Bullying in the Workplace describes exactly what a serial bully/sociopath is.
“The serial bully is a convincing, practiced liar and when called to account, will make up anything spontaneously to fit their needs at that moment. He has a Jekyll and Hyde nature – is vile, vicious and vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses; no one can (or wants to) believe this individual has a vindictive nature – only the current target of the serial bully’s aggression sees both sides; whilst the Jekyll side is described as “charming” and convincing enough to deceive personnel, management and a tribunal, the Hyde side is frequently described as “evil”; Hyde is the real person, Jekyll is an act.
fails to fulfill commitments.
poisons peoples’ minds by manipulating their perceptions and when called upon to share or address the needs and concerns of others, responds with impatience, irritability and aggression.
He is an arrogant, haughty, high-handed know-it-all.
He is mean-spirited, officious, and often unbelievably petty.
He is mean, stingy, and financially untrustworthy.
He is greedy, selfish, a parasite and an emotional vampire.
The serial bully often fraudulently claims qualifications, experience, titles, entitlements or affiliations which are ambiguous, misleading, or bogus.
