To answer your question, we need to make a journey into psychology, otherwise any answer will be superficial - "because an idiot". All that I will describe in the future is the interpretation of behavior from the point of view. psychology. First, let's start with the fact that the troll, as a rule, is the same person as we are - he is subscribed to mountains of people, publics and other content generators. But he does not answer everything and everyone. Among these mountains of information, he isolates something "of his own" - to this he will respond. And this is "his", as a rule, what causes an internal conflict in him, what worries him psychologically, an unresolved question within himself, or what is a personal war for him.

Trolls and haters are of different categories and, depending on this, their motives come - for convenience, hereinafter all will be called trolls. I will describe the most popular types of them and why they behave this way from the point of view. psychology, and if you are too lazy to read everything, choose the type that you need:

  1. trolls girls / women. Precisely beautiful, normal girls, not Karin-barbie and those who can be put in the garden as a scarecrow. So, if a beautiful girl is trolled / insulted by a guy, then most likely because she liked the girl, but objectively too tough - well, he will not have such a girl, or so much money, or his wife is not beautiful, but beauties in his life will never be, or has already sent him off like this. And now, instead of good words addressed to her, what is called "substitution" in psychology - desire is replaced by anger. He will most likely write to such a girl not as many guys often do: "Oh, what a beauty!", "Will you take a walk with me?" and so on, and "whore", "skin", and how much she sucked on her fur coat. The same thing happens when a girl writes nasty things to a girl: look - what is it? - Dissatisfaction with yourself, your appearance and your life, or fear of changing it. Envy. It is easier for her to write nasty things and focus her attention on the envy of others than on her problems with herself. Or to fish out other people's shortcomings (after all, there are those who write about shortcomings - "you are pimply", "and you have a hunchbacked nose", "terrible") - this means that a person either has problems with self-esteem, he envies some things, objects, appearance, or he himself has external flaws and, in order to calm himself, he begins to look for them from others and poke them at them. This is very similar to bullying at school - teenagers bully each other to smooth out the severity of their own adolescence, their own, as it seems to them, imperfections - they look for them from others.

  2. religious trolls. It can be not only a religious person, it can be quite an atheist. By the way, note that there are a lot of aggressive people among religious people who believe, a lot of abuse, including obscene ones. It would seem how a believer can have so much anger, rage, hostility? Why with tz. psychology, they so vehemently defend their views? After all, there are religious people and atheists who pass by debates on the topic of religion? If a person fiercely sucksHe sets his own term. it means inner doubt - he doubts his beliefs. Inside there is a conflict on the topic of religion - either the person does not fully believe, or does not fully believe. And he pours his inner experiences into the outer world. He wants to drag another to his field, so he will be calmer in the fact that he is not mistaken. Why do psychologists think so? Everything is very simple: understand, if for you, within you, any issue is resolved, you will not raise it. You look at the dispute and most likely pass by - there is no dispute for you. In fact, you do it every day, you just don't notice. If you stumbled upon a discussion of a film that you think is Mr., but it does not cause a storm of emotional problems in you, you will not convince everyone in the comments to the post about him that he is Mr. - you decided everything for yourself - scroll the tape further ... Or, for example, you do not sit on the forum and do not argue with someone that the earth is round, or, conversely, flat - for you this is a settled issue.

  3. political (well, he can't live without protecting the president like Dartanyan, the State Duma for him is a detachment of velociraptors or, on the contrary, the best thing that could happen in his life - he was sucked in by a political swamp along with the sofa and he cannot get out of there anymore ). What drives such a troll? He does not riot in the square, does not go to sign papers, no. Thus, he: a) merges aggression; b) shifts the responsibility from himself to the authorities: "there is no responsibility for me - this is power"; "I do not decide anything - this is power", "if the power were different, then I would be normal, I would achieve more in life." The famous joke about Obama who broke all our roads and pissed all the entrances - that's just about that.

  4. ardent homophobes. Such people who are frantically added to all groups devoted to minorities: for or against them, who write and write, they are banned for obscenities and insults, but they still cannot calm down - they are simply shaken. What is it? This is also an internal conflict - people, as a rule, are men, want to distance themselves from homosexuality in this way - they say, I'm not like that, I'm a traditional man, I'm all so macho! The second reason may be (again, from the point of view of psychology) - an unresolved question about his orientation, but only a very deep question - a person internally tries to justify his heterosexuality, to convince himself of it. If we are talking not about a man, but about a woman, then homophobia may be associated with fear for her child, she is afraid that her child will become gay or lesbian - note that most often homophobic women on the Internet are those who have families, children. And in this way they "protect" and at the same time calm themselves - their child will not be like that.

  5. professional trolls. If you are successful in your business and they are not, then they will get to you. As a rule, these are envious people who have: the same profession as yours, their own business as yours, and so on. But they don't have your success. Their vibe is silent, their offices are empty, there are zero orders, etc.And so, since this creates a lot of free time, they pour their anger on you - it’s you their clients are sitting and working on their orders. You eat their bread, to stake you! You are not a pro! And here they are.

  6. intelligent trolls. The most dangerous predator in the vastness of srachs of all stripes. As a rule, their ratings on the sites are high, they have knowledge, so what is itching to do then? Raising self-esteem. Plus do not forget - trolling and ridiculing others is sometimes the same way of earning money as selling whites at the Kursk railway station, this is income.

7. other. Why do they do this - the answer is either above, or ask a question about the motive.

The motives of the troll and any hater are deep, but if we ask why people do it, then as a rule the answer will be what I described above. How not to react to a troll, negativity, etc. on the Internet? - reveal the motives of a person, but not out loud (in print), reveal for yourself and move on. If you are attacked by a troll and another hater, this means, as a rule, that with you something is just fine. You have everything on the ointment. And remember the phrase Zhvanetsky: If you argue with an idiot, he most likely does the same!

I believe that people assert themselves at the expense of the Internet. Since they understand that the person on the other side of the monitor is far away and cannot punish the offender physically, he can behave, that is, be rude, swearing without getting foul.

Answer 3

Yes, out of ordinary boredom and routine, most topics on the Internet exist only to let off steam.

To stir up a stranger with the mother, offer your intimate services, etc.

Don't take this seriously.

Because, unlike the real world, ugly behavior in the virtual world does not threaten a person. You can behave whatever you want, say whatever you want, especially if you do it anonymously. In the real world, such behavior would quickly lead to an escalation of the conflict and its transition to another plane, but on the Internet you can show aggression without worrying about coming in the face or getting a subpoena.
