    This paper analyzes the victim profile of mobbing among a sample of Galician working population, with special attention to gender differences. The results show significant differences between men and women in relation to the mobbing incidence and the type and seriousness of the behaviours suffered. In particular, women are more affected by the processes of psychological harassment than men and they suffer a greater number of behaviours although less intense. In the case of women, the behaviors suffered are more related to the personal sphere, while men suffer work-related behaviours. In both cases, the victims indicate envy as a cause of mobbing, who choose to act passively to attack the aggressor, normally a superior.
