  • Never intentionally. I am a strong woman with convictions and beliefs, I express them ...but do not force them upon others. Some people find strength intimidating.

  • Yes. I do NOT do it on purpose it just seems to happen. I agree that it is pretty funny though.

  • I do think I intimidate people when I speak my mind; know more about what we are doing or talking about than they do; get upset. Now, I am working on not being intimidating on the first and third examples but I make no apologies for doing and knowing my job well and then some. I have alot of experience and I am doing some simple lower levels jobs than I could so I have a healthy balance between family and work. I don't believe in "dumbing down" to make someone else feel comfortable.

  • YES. It can be funnny. But not always. You have to be careful. You walk what you teach.!

  • I don't think I do. Some people think I'm being snobby because I don't smile all the time but I have never been one to intimidate someone.

  • Not usually. I'm really laid back. I've been told I look mean sometimes. And its always when I'm thinking about something. I guess I have a mean thinking face. lol

  • I can and usually know when I am doing it. My education normally is the most intimidating for others. For people I like, I tell them I'm no different than them. For people who try to walk all over me (normally men bc I'm a female) I allow them to know what's up and don't mind intimidating them to keep my place in life. I'm just as important in this life as anyone who carries that gential appendage that men think rules the world.
