    No. I've had friends say that they're not sure if anything can really rattle me. icon_confused.gif

    I agree except with meeting new people. That can be intimidating.

    Very intimidating. Some people judge you entirely off of your first impression.

    It depends to be honest. If I'm stressed out or incredibly busy, I might be. Under normal circumstances no, I have no issue with striking random converstaions or working out in the guy across from the guy whose arms rival the size of my tiny waist.

    Then again, I'm apparently intimidating to at least a few.

    Not often, but it depends on the circumstances and whats happening.

    In a general social setting.. almost never. I love challenges. I have to be caught by surprise and when I'm not in a positive mood.

    Not very much. Depends on my evaluation of the situation, like facing a 300-pound red-neck drunk in a bar could be intimidating, but facing the average person rarely is, nor even the famous & powerful.

    Instead, as someone wrote above, I'm often told that I'm the one who's intimidating, which has lost me some nibbles at gay clubs. So I take "countermeasures" to appear non-frightening, even to the point of acting a bit sillier than I already am (and that's a lot), and always trying to wear a smile in social situations.

    it's not often I get intimidated by anyone there have been.. erm.. a few cases where I have been by guys who have come onto me, but it's been a massive turn on hahaha

    Otherwise no, I don't get intimidated by people.

    I used to be really bad with meeting people........Then I had an epiphany. If we meet and you don't like me, well tough s**t. icon_cool.gif

    You should try it. It feels good.

    Just looking at some of these posts and having a small lol, because the OP is asking "are you easily intimidated" but not what the intimidater is, which could be a person, a situation, an institution, etc. but the focus seems to be on other people in these replies.

    When I was younger, yes, now not so much. I think it comes with age that you stop worrying so much about what others think

    I'm not easily intimidated. It's something I learned a long time ago. There are folks here that do name calling, say things that aren't true, and all that, but, I understand the source; that those folks are ignorant; insecure, and don't get either intimidated, nor engage in that game.

    I've learned that often some of the most rewarding things are when you walk into, through, above, and beyond, your comfort zone.

    We do things not because they are easy, but, often, because they are hard.

    I've been known to "spank" the bully on a few occasions, and I often help the less fortunate.

    Yes

    I project a 'don't talk to me' buffer zone around myself as a defense mechanism.

    I am for sure. Something I've had to work hard on, and still do. Especially in my job, I have to encourage collaboration, make decisions that others disagree with, and give LOTS of critical feedback to a creative team. Gotta fight off intimidation to be effective.
