There is nothing more annoying than people who are always happy and like everyone. Once I build up a little credit with such a person, and we're past the first impressions stage and they know I'm competent, I relax. It's much easier than that awkward dating back in high school.Intimidation (also called cowing) is intentional behavior that "would cause a person of ordinary sensibilities" to fear injury or harm.It is not necessary to prove that the behavior was so violent as to cause mean terror or that the victim was actually frightened.Alternatively, intimidation may result from the type of society in which individuals are socialized, as human beings are generally reluctant to engage in confrontation or threaten violence.Like all behavioral traits, it exists in greater or lesser manifestation in each individual person over time, but may be a more significant "compensatory behavior" for some as opposed to others.
