In this study, the reasons underlying aggressive or nonaggressive attitudes of employees exposed to mobbing were investigated. For this purpose, employees were identified who aggressively responded to mobbing or did not show an aggressive response to five different mobbing behaviors in the form of ‘effecting the victim’s possibilities to maintain personal reputation, physical health, possibilities to maintain social contacts, possibilities to communicate adequately, and occupational situation’, in the sample of 169 employees in the health sector. It was then investigated via discriminant analysis how personal and working life characteristics could be exploited in the differentiation of groups of aggressive and unaggressive employees. Results have been obtained that the employees who react aggressively to mobbing and who are unaggressive are divided into different groups according to their marital status, tenure, education status, and management status. Finally, in line with the results of the research, some suggestions have been made to investigate the subject of the search with different variables.
