    Disrespectful behaviors are more hostile than inappropriateness, and they are usually aimed directly at another person or more than one person.

    Specific Actions Associated with Disrespectful Behavior; Examples of behavior that indicate disrespect include:

    1. Public humiliation

    2. Criticizing, ridiculing, or dismissive.

    3. Shouting

    4. Degrading other people

    5. Inappropriate sarcasm

    6. Speaking in a condescending or belittling way.

    7. Swearing at another person

    8. Dismissive or negative gesturing when someone else is speaking.

    9. Talking over another person; poor behavior in group settings.

    10. Refusing to speak to another person for specific purposes.

    11. Discounting the person’s thoughts or feelings. 

    12. Stealing credit for work done by other people. 

    Inappropriate behavior is the least offensive of the disruptive behaviors and is often seen as the way a person broadcasts themselves. People who display these types of behaviors are typically mindful of what constitutes proper conduct, but they choose to ignore the limits of acceptability when in the presence of others.

    Specific Actions Associated with Inappropriate Behavior; Examples of behavior that indicate inappropriate conduct include:

    1. Rude, loud, and off-colored remarks.

    2. Inappropriate or degrading jokes.

    3. Brushing or touching someone in inappropriate ways and passing it off as an accident.

    4. Swearing in public.

    5. Shouting out loud but not targeted at someone. 

    6. Exhibiting presumably uncontrollable mood swings in front of the group. 

    7. Publicly displaying gross, undignified but not illegal behavior. 

    Mild bullying behaviors fall on the harsher side of disrespect, and they are aimed directly at another person or persons. Mild bullying behaviors targeted at another individual can escalate into intimidating behavior and more severe bullying.

    Specific Actions Associated with Mild Bullying

    Examples of behavior that indicate mild bullying include:

    1. Regularly ignore by not responding to or acknowledging another when greeting him or her, different from not initiating a greeting.

    2. Ignore communications or requests for anything. 

    3. Dismissive interpersonal communications, shuts down the conversation and doesn’t allow the other person to communicate his or her perspective. 

    4. Impatient with another; not allowing time for two-way communication; creating a sense of power differential.

    5. Blaming without giving the person the opportunity to share his or her perspective. 

    6. Disregard satisfactory or exemplary quality of completed work despite evidence. 

    7. Periodic oversights of leaving a person out of communications. 

    8. Periodic oversights of excluding a person from social situations that would typically be inclusive; and recruit others to do the same. 

    9. Sharing inappropriate information about another; leaving out information about another that casts him or her in poor favor. 

    10. Trying to intimidate and control another through interruptions, contradictions, silent treatment. 

    11. Ridicule, insult, play jokes on another person. 

    12. Limited insight to treatment of others; not aware of how others experience bully’s interactions. 

    Moderate to severe bullying differs from mild bullying in that it reflects a dominant style that consists of recurrent and persistent negative actions toward people, which involve a perceived power imbalance and creates a hostile environment. Bullying becomes moderate to severe when the instances of abuse increase in frequency and personalization; the key is intent to harm or humiliate.

    Specific Actions Associated with Moderate to Severe Bullying; Examples of behavior that indicate moderate to severe bullying include: 

    1. Routine public responses that are dismissive, shun, shut down, ignore, or respond condescendingly. 

    2. Dismissive interpersonal communications, shut down a conversation and not allow the other person to communicate his or her perspective. 

    3. Ongoing misinformation, forgetting to share need-to-know information which makes the other person look foolish or humiliated by not knowing.

    4. Sabotage and creating a situation of impossible demands whereby the other person is left out or will fail to meet expectations. 

    5. Spreading rumors, half-truths or blatant lies about another person; denying the behavior. 

    6. Acting impatient in a way that treats the other person as incompetent. 

    7. Excluding specific people from social interactions that would typically be inclusive; appears intentional to others; recruit others to do the same. 

    8. Publicly ridicule, insult, make jokes about person in his or her presence. 

    9. Routinely blaming and criticizing. 

    10. Intimidation by glaring, acting forceful, interrupting, shutting down another person, also includes contradictions and silent treatment. 

    11. Falsely accusing another of errors that are not actually made. 

    12. Singling out another person in condescending way. 

    13. Yelling, screaming, or throwing tantrums in front of others to humiliate the person. 

    14. Retaliation for the person asking for help. 

    15. Little to no insight to treatment of others; not aware of how others experience bully’s interactions; no apologies for difficult interactions.
