Does Bullying at school make people try to understand and use logic more

I just had this idea this morning trying to think why I spend so much effort trying to understand things and people in general.


I thought maybe it was from childhood being bullied by people and trying to figure out the reasons behing there behaviour. I noticed that some people to not try to understand things and maybe this was because they where bullied less and therefore just do things without trying to understand.

If as a child you are a bully you think less about things and are more confident and also thought appear more dum to the average person but you have more success with other things. Most IT ppl if there are programmers use the logical side of there brains but most have been bullied at school. The bullies seem to be more emotional and agressive and think less.

Is there any evidence than being bullied makes people more prone to be understanding and logical people?
