Default Do you intimidate others?

Do you intimidate others? I know that I do because of my size. Take for example last week my baby sister brought home her new boyfriend. I am pretty sure I scared the crap out of his by my size. Awe it felt so good to do so!!!!!

I am not intimidating. At least not until I get pissed off.

No.

And, I do not go out of my way to inject this into my personality.

Intimidation has its place (depending on how one defines it, and circumstances), but its not one I strive for.

At 5' 7" (LOL) 168 pounds, I am not intimidating physically---with my cloths on. Take it off, then its another ball game we play, again on how you define it. But, I do what I do, NOT TO IMPRESS OTHERS, its far more rich than this rather shallow reason.

I do not and will not respect big guys whom go out of there way to intimidate people on a regular and continuing basis. There is far too much hate and "inappropriate" intimidation in this world.

I DO respect a big guy whom is humble, tender, smart, and walks around helping others; it is this sort of guy when you look at him...you already know he is huge and strong, without the person throwing it in your face. The person who walks around carrying himself like this, (to me) is a much better person, not to mention, much stronger as a individual. The big guy in green mile is an example of what I am speaking--bless his heart.


Peace


Don

i was a bouncer at a club in college so i had to add intimidation stares to my facial expressions. I'd never tried to intimidate anyone so my boss said just think sad thoughts and scowl. It worked. Now my wife always says don't scowl in public you ll make babies cry.

I'm not worried if I intimidate anyone. I will say though that over the years I have learned to bark when someone tries to run over me.

I was raised to let the tire run me over. Now I tell the car to move.

Losers intimidate in my opinion. Your effect should be felt just by your presence and not by your size per se. Just saying.
