A truly confident person does not intimidate others.
I’m sad to say that I was in my 40s before I understood how to handle intimidation. A person who needs to intimate others, is typically a weak and insecure individual. You have to realize that in order for them to feel better about themselves; they have to put someone else down.
A truly confident individual, with inner strength, does not do that.
Therefore, the knowledge that the person who is trying to intimidate me, intimidates anyone they can – not just me, and the knowledge that they are personally insecure, gives me the strength I need to not be impacted by their attempt at intimation.
In other words, once you understand why someone behaves the way they do, it is much easier to persuade oneself to avoid becoming a victim or target of this person’s insecurity. Learn more persuasive skills.
