Often intimidating

Some socially awkward types have the problem of being a bit too uneasy around certain types of people.Here are the big ones: When someone is intimidated by really outgoing people it's that they're worried about having to talk to them and feeling really overwhelmed and like they won't be able to keep up or know what to say.

A lot of employees are intimidated by their managers, or students by their professors.

Someone may also be nervous around police officers, high-status professionals like doctors and lawyers, religious authorities, or employees who have power in a particular establishment, like bouncers or bartenders.

Some people feel uncomfortable around their friends' or partner's parents.

They may be really outgoing as well, which can add in all the problems from the point above.

I find their intimidating aura shrinks when you just have more experience with them.

You get used to them, start to see them as normal people, and learn firsthand that they have flaws and quirks and insecurities like everyone else.

What also helps is improving your own confidence and social skills.

You then see these people as closer to your level, rather than them being on a pedestal and you feeling you're a walking example of lame, awkward unworthiness that's lucky to even be talking to them. If you know someone is mean-spirited or gossipy you're going to be on guard around them.

Though sometimes we mistakenly think that everyone who dresses or acts a certain way is going to look down on us.
