Am i an intimidating person bb liquidating inc stock
It is very easy for him to come off as confrontational, dismissive, and flat out discouragingly critical.
I once mentioned this to a tenured professor, a professor older and much more senior than I, and he laughed and said, “you know, I was just out talking with him and I felt like I was 12 years old again, trying to please my father.” Now I have heard secondhand that this imposing professor has apparently been told a couple times that he intimidates people and his response apparently was amused bewilderment.
At one of the many schools where I have either taught or studied (I’m being as vague as possible to minimize people’s abilities to accurately guess who I am talking about—please don’t try, it’s not important), there is a powerful professor whose actions show he cares quite a bit about students.
But at the same time his personality is extremely intimidating.
But nonetheless he implicitly scares the crap out of many students with his demeanor and he does not compensate for that in the sorts of emotionally sensitive afraid of him and prevents him from proactively alleviating their anxieties and helping them grow.
I know one student in particular who suffered a lot of intellectual paralysis, with real academic and personal costs, out of fear of his disapproval.
He does not see himself as anyone to be especially afraid of.
In his heart, I would guess that he looks at his accomplishments as good but modest and fairly obscure, in the grand scheme of things.
In short, we need to learn the virtue of graciousness.Classes involve personalized attention to your own ideas and questions.Course content winds up tailored to your interests as lively and rigorous class discussions determine where exactly we go.Sometimes a relatively well-meaning person does not want to superior to other people or, especially, to feel like she is someone who has a lot emotionally invested in being superior to other people.This is likely due in some part to the various social and moral pressures against feeling better than others that I mentioned at the outset.
