Abstract: 
Although knowledge on the psychosocial (mal)adjustment of bully-victims, children who
bully others and are victimized by others, has been increasing, the findings have been
principally gained utilizing a single method to identify bully-victims. The present study
examined the psychosocial adjustment of bully-victims (as compared with pure bullies and
pure victims) identified by Olweus’ global measures, peer-nominations, and a profile method
based on Olweus’ multiple measures of bullying/victimization forms. The sample included
17,586 students from grades 3 to 8 (9 to 15 years old) in Finland. Bully-victims formed the
smallest group, whose subjective experience of maladjustment differed from that of bullies,
rather than that of victims. Both the prevalence and the relative maladjustment of bullyvictims
varied across identification methods, gender, and school level.
