8 Signs You Have A Strong Personality That Might Intimidate People

Strong Personality Might Intimidate People

Not everyone has the ability to handle a strong personality because at the end of the day it intimidates people, and they hate it. People with strong personalities are mostly misunderstood for a lot of things, because of how they are and the vibes they give off. Sad, but true.

Many people think that you are a dominating person. Or you are rude. Or you are snobbish. At the end of the day, these are just judgments, assumptions, and presumptions, and it is far from the truth. You might have a strong personality, but on the inside, you are a gooey cream roll. It’s just that people don’t care enough to delve a bit deeper and see that side of yours.

Here Are 8 Signs You Have A Strong Personality That Might Intimidate People

1. You never entertain excuses.

A person with a strong personality never accepts excuses, and they never let other people waste their valuable time with stupid things. If you want to get something done, you will go ahead and do it, instead of constantly whining about it. You firmly believe in creating your own destiny rather than waiting for everything to fall on your lap.

You should never have any doubts about yourself when you are not making excuses. You are an incredibly strong personality who believes in walking the walk, and not just talking the talk.

2. You are choosy about who gets to be a part of your life.

When you have a strong personality, you never depend on anyone for anything, nor do you let anyone tell you how to live your life. You appreciate your loved ones, but at the end of the day, you control your life, and how you will live it is up to you. People who understand that, respect that and never tries to control you are the ones who get to be a part of your life.

You don’t just let anyone come into your life; they have to be worth your standards, which are very high by the way, and there is nothing wrong with that.

3. You don’t have time for small talk.

You absolutely hate small talk, and you purposely try to avoid it as much as you can. You do not want to waste time talking about people when you could be changing the world. Small talk is for people who never try to make their dreams come true and always focus on irrelevant things, which is completely unlike you.

You would rather talk about things that are important, and deep. You love deep conversations where you will get to know the other person on a more intimate level. Meaningful conversations are something you always look to have with people.

4. You hate ignorance and insensitivity.

Ignorance, idiocy, and insensitivity are things you deeply despise, and you choose to stay away from people who embody these traits. Your strong personality is not the result of being dominating, but because of years of gaining knowledge and intelligence. You are sensitive, thoughtful, and smart, and that is what sets you apart from everybody.

You are always trying to be better than the previous day, and are constantly working on yourself to be better. So, when you see people being judgemental, idiotic, and cruel, you do not engage with them in any way.

5. You are a good listener.

Anyone with a strong personality ends up being an amazing listener, and never tries to monopolize conversations. You will always try to put your best foot forward and try to understand what the other person is going through without trying to lecture them or make it about yourself. Always trying to be there for people who need you says a lot about you as a person.

Not everyone can be a good listener, so give yourself a pat on the back for this!

    As I was reading this article, I remembered what an aide had said to me after I moved in to this assisted living facility. She said that another aide was “afraid of you” and she and I couldn’t figure out why. No one else seems to be afraid of me. But now I can see why as I read this article. I just plain don’t take crap off of anyone. But, that is their problem and not mine.

    I have a strong personality so I can agree with all but insecurities people try to find weakness so they can put a light on them but I have to not let them know for that reason alone some say I have trust issues but I say being cautious

    The fact that the illustrations in all these articles are always women says a lot. If it’s only women we’re talking about here, I know and have raised ‘strong women’ who are not always easy to be around. They’re strong as hell but mean as hell too. Sometimes you just have to walk away from mean.

      Agree: Unfortunately some don’t know how to recognise the line between self preservation and complete lack of empathy and compassion and tolerance for the weaknesses of others. You can walk away with dignity or you can beat your way out by destroying everything in your path.
