How to deal with intimidating people dating and rejection
Think about your default response, as much as theirs.
Consider what prejudices you bring to the table as much as what this person might bring.
Here is a list of considerations: Is it because of this person’s reputation?
You may feel intimidated if the person’s reputation precedes them.
Shyness is misunderstood as aloofness all the time. As a sales professional that goes to a lot of networking events, I have been brushed more times than I can recall. As far as I am aware, I am still alive and well (and certainly more successful as a result of still going for it anyway). Like our values, the qualities that intimidate vary for everyone.
Is this the reality, or just the opinion of somebody else who has projected their own feeling of intimidation onto you?To tackle this problem, you need to understand why it is a problem in the first place.Take a look at the relationship you have with this person and how you interact. Similarly, I introduced myself and asked a bit about her and her work. When I shared that he does come across as a little aloof he was surprised as it is the opposite of his intention. A friend of a friend of mine who appears standoffish confided in me one night at drinks he is shy and loves it when people interact with him. Well here is one universal truth, well put by Eleanor Roosevelt, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." And I don't need to meet you to know that there is nothing inferior about you, my friend.
