Have you ever felt intimidated by a prospective partner/friend/any person, or an actual partner, why? how does this effect your relationships?
Is there a stigma attached to 'feeling intimidated'? (i.e. insecure) is feeling intimidated a natural thing, and not necessarily a reflection on a person's self worth?
Have you ever been told you are intimidating?
Have you observed intimidation in your experience in society?
We're talking here of certain characteristics, rather than someone who intentionallly intimidates in order to gain something, or to dominate.
I'm interested to glean some opinions on this for my own personal social research I guess...
I recently heard a conversation regarding it, and how it effected the people in their relationships. A few claimed they had never found a mate because other people are intimidated by their confidence and 'intelligence'. And they are constantly 'dumbing theirselves down'. Another mentioned that they knew a person, who only dated people who were 'lower' than them, in terms of status. Another mentioned they were too tall.
