These exact people yeah of course most would never say these things IRL but this is who they are deep down inside. These will be the people who are associates with you and who will be partners at the firms you work at. If you can't deal with them here you need a new profession. Some professions tend to attract kind, uplifting generally happy people. Law, especially the type of people that are shooting for the top law schools, tends (I said tends not always does, clearly there are some nice, happy people on TLS, just in the minority) to attract a-holes. Get used to it.
I am an ornery poaster because I have low self-esteem.
Bullies truly don't have low self-esteem. They actually have much higher self-esteem, which is why they bully.
(Random collection of social psych studies on self-esteem, figured it'd be good to know)
I'd say sometimes true, sometimes not. After years of working with teens, I've seen plenty of bullying driven by low self-esteem
