But more often than not, you find yourself on the receiving end of a different kind of compliment: the old "you're so intimidating" line.Being called intimidating feels like a sneaky diss that somehow makes you swell with pride. Because being called intimidating is actually the greatest compliment you'll ever receive.In spite of the fact that you most likely enjoy your own company, you might also find yourself feeling like you actually repel friendships.
Being called good-looking, talented, friendly, funny or classy is great.For individuals in business to team sports, intimidation is a tactic that can be used to control people as well as instill a sense of fear.However, intimidation works best when you use the right words to gain that competitive edge.When you walk into a room, you give off a vibe that people instantly respond to, like you're just breezing through while your private jet waits outside. Be aware of your impact and know your own strength.Otherwise, you can turn from Christian Grey to Lenny from "Of Mice And Men," and shit will go downhill real quick.The order of words in an English sentence is very important.A change in word order often results in a change of meaning.You are a human being, you feel feelings and you allow yourself the freedom to experience them without trying to hide them.
