    To be properly intimidating, you probably need to be either really freakish and insane or to be a directing personality. And Most ENTPs are informing personalities (I believe they CAN be directing, as I disagree that being a certain type specifies what your communication style is 100% of the time, but normally they'd just be informing). Although they may be able to intimidate some timid Behind-the-scenes people with their strong energy.

    I think that's as far as any ENTP can go. maybe just being loud in general.

    I can intimidate - mainly when at work, either throughh communicating too passionately, or having all the arguments covered off and be literally runnign 3 minutes ahead of others thinking. I have been told in one specific job - that I finished an major launch too quickly, and was too creative - OH DEARY me I cried myself to sleep that night

On certain subjects in which I have expertise, I take the effort to cut them down, but they don't back off easily because the need to be right can be stronger than the need to accept the truth.
    This roughly parallels my impression of certain ENTPs. It's more annoying than intimidating, especially when some ENTPs get all aggressive over any little thing. I'm often scratching my head as to what the hell that person's problem is. Plus half the time I can't tell if the person is being serious or just playing around - which makes it more annyoing from my perspective. Plus all too often they try to lecture me on stuff I already know, but yet address me as if I didn't know anything.

    What other traits did you encounter when they acted like this? Was this there natural state of being, or were they stressed when you saw this attitude?

    Well certainly any attempt to diffuse the situation failed and basically seemed to encourage them to act more aggressively. They would also insist on some particular negative assestment of myself and would not accept the possibility that they were wrong or mistaken. No everything I said would be twisted around to support their preconceived notion, and/or made to look more sinister than it actually was.

    I really wouldn't know in all honesty about them being stressed. In each case it kinda blew up suddenly and out of nowhere, so at times it caught me off guard.

    Hm, oh well, sudden outbursts could be linked to stress I suppose. Maybe they felt threatened by you? Thank you for your contribution!

    No problem. Threatened by me? Interesting to hear that, although then again people have told me I can be intimidating myself.
