How many times are you judged by the way you talk, dress, or a drive a car? How many times daily you judge someone and their appearance by the way they walk or talk to you?
We live in a judgmental society which kills all the creativity we have within us. Why is that? Simply because we are good in following trends.
Have you ever noticed that there are judgmental tendencies present even in marriages? We marry a person having an idea of how they should look like, and then we do get marry them, we somehow refuse to accept the differences they have. So, we basically start judge our partner and even try to change them.
With this being said, it becomes clear that we live in a judgmental world. However, instead of letting judgmental words affect us, we should learn to cope with them and avoid worrying too much about the way other people perceive us.
This article focuses on intimidating people, who are typically seen as rude. However, a real kindness lies behind this tough exterior. To understand this better, here are 10 traits of intimidating people:
1. You always speak the truth
Honesty is one of your priorities and an essential part of your character. You always speak the truth and when you say that you are going to do something and set your mind on it, you will do anything to follow through.
2. You are open minded and willing to do new things
People are so closed off some times that when someone comes along and calls bullshit on their way of thinking, they don’t like that.
You are open to hearing points of view and arguments for both sides of the story. And that makes people uncomfortable sometimes.
3. You create solutions in an innovative way
You are anything but a follower. Instead of focusing on the problem, you focus on the solution and eventually get things done on your own.
4. You are direct and straight to the point
You cannot stand lying and deception of any kind. You value honesty, straight-shooters, and people who are direct like you.
5. You are strong-willed
You are extremely strong-willed! You are focused on things that matter to you and prepared to go to dramatic lengths to make them happen.
6. You hate complainers
Complaining is something that makes you mad, you would rather work alone than with someone who spends the whole day complaining. You don’t have time for their shit and will not pick up their extra weight without letting them know where they can shove their complaints.
7. You are kind
As mentioned in the very beginning, those who see intimidating at first are extremely kind people. People may be judgmental and judge you by your exterior as you don’t waste time and succeed in anything you set your mind on.
8. You don’t make small talk
To you, small talk can be a bit annoying. You do take the time to deal with it often and would rather be sitting alone. You only want to partake in conversations with meaning. If someone cannot have a real, deep and meaningful conversation with you then most likely they do not even converse with you at all.
9. You are wise
You are innovative and open-minded, which often makes you surpass your peers. You do have a revolutionary way of thinking.
10. You don’t tolerate willful ignorance
You are open minded, yes, but you will not entertain anyone who is judgmental. You will either walk away from them and their ignorance or lose your patience with them and let them have a piece of your mind.
