Situation - You are observing BULLYING
The Bully can make it easy for you to pick their pattern
We are talking here about someone who uses bully-boy tactics. They are in 'destructive or toxic mode'. You disapprove of them because they use rough and aggressive methods.
Bullies hurt others either physically, mentally or emotionally. They can ruin a persons life, just to make themselves feel better. This site is of the view that it is nigh on impossible to 'stop bullying' despite only 15% of the population are 'bullies' - per the Disc classification.
There is one clear pattern here that is the full time bully. And one who wants to fight straight away. Can you pick them?
While spotting a bully is reasonably easy, you will most likely need assistance :-) This website might tell you what but it will not tell you how. Here is how all Disc types react - all sixteen patterns - match the behaviour you are observing.

Likely to bully others: Yes. When toxic, the Director is dictatorial, aggressive, and controlling.

Likely to be the bully as thrives on confrontation. If not the bully, on this rare occasion, is nevertheless still likely to tell the bully to f**k off. Alternatively, is likely to fight the bully and win and therefore take their place. If a Developer sees a person bullying another person is likely to step up and tell the bully to pick on someone their own size. This bully might not back off and the Developer then defeats the bully with one uppercut, physical or oral.
