Most people would refer to what you've described as "bullying".
I've noticed it throughout my life, most markedly in school - where the name calling and insults are more concise and direct. It's very painful to
go through, especially when one doesn't understand WHY they are being attacked.
It's almost as if some people are hardwired form the beginning to get a competitive edge over others by starting to program their victims with a
negative self image as early as possible.
The best thing to do is just avoid these people.
They DO exist, what you're discussing IS valid. Great post!
