Trying to analyze your intimidation away probably won't do a ton.The first time someone ever has to go to their boss to ask them a question they may feel really scared.
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.
Like they may start getting weak in the knees when they have to talk to someone at their school who drinks under age, occasionally skips classes, and who once tagged a mailbox with a marker.
In this case someone may need to just get more experience with the world and see that tons of otherwise good, nice people often skirt the rules in one way or another.
Sure they may be a little rougher around the edges than average, but they're hardly going to beat you down just for talking to them or being in the same nightclub.
Someone who's socially inexperienced may be a bit too afraid of the world and see anyone who comes across as the slightest big thuggy as being super dangerous.
They may speed or park illegally, smoke under age, or buy a fake ID so they can get into bars.
Maybe they're a tad adventurous and daring compared to some people, but they're hardly sketchy supreme bad asses.
If we're shy, we may assume everyone is constantly looking for a reason to critique our flaws.
