Is there a workplace violence ‘type’?

Is there a certain profile of people who commit acts of workplace violence?

There is no perfect profile. Men, women, young and old commit workplace violence. There are, however, some commonalities that are seen in many of the cases. Often the people who commit these acts are angry, withdrawn, loners, may have a history of drug/alcohol abuse, have trouble getting along with others, following rules, and accepting responsibility for their actions. They are unable to deal with circumstances in their lives and will often experience a triggering event such as a divorce, death, or termination before they commit their acts.
