are you a hippy-haired 6'4 heavyweight man with a heavy accent physically different in apearance from the main ethinicty of the local population walking around with a chinese looking 5 years old boy and a petite blond woman who looks like a teenager (even though she is in her mid 20's) and wears too much makeup?
...cause apearently that will do it... learned it the hard way.
Holy shit. You just described me. We must be twins.
over the past few months, I've been described by various people (especially coworkers... even ones visiting our office on business trips!) as intimidating... even by people who like me... I really have no clue why
what makes a person intimidating?
should a person realize this?
You don't seem intimidating to me but your probably just on the ball with everything at work. You don't have to be a dickhead to be intimidating alot of people will judge you simply on your body language.
You and I or the lot like us see competence as a challenge and a game. The rest of the litter who are rather touchy, insecure, lazy, tend to see qualities like yours as a direct threat; a bit of airing their dirty laundry and saying "you're not good enough" without saying a word. Being yourself happily is in direct conflict with everyone imitating everyone.
Just curious, did it happen while you lived in Brazil?
Maybe you look like you know too much? Just a half baked theory.
