How your behavior can intimidate people
But sometimes a person has too many of these traits or doesn't know how to control them properly. For instance, being overly honest and straightforward can put a person off or cause misunderstandings with the people around you. Here are the warning signs to look out for.
1. You challenge others
You know for sure whom you can challenge. But is your counterpart ready for this?
2. You are picky

On a quest for true human interaction, you take a long time choosing the really interesting and important ones. But while doing that, you don't notice other people.
3. You avoid fools
You don't want to waste your time on them and you tell them about it directly.
4. You don't strive to be friends with everyone

Many people want to be your friends and do anything to get closer to you. However, such behavior only irritates you.
5. You don't need approval
Everything you do is only ever motivated by your own aspirations, not because you want to get other people's approval.
6. You ignore small talk

You don't want to waste your time on idle talk, so you don't even bother getting involved in many conversations.
7. You are a good listener
You listen but you don't ask questions? It's not a real conversation then! Not everyone can handle monologues.
8. You don't accept excuses

You are more interested in things that were done to complete the task rather than the obstacles people were faced with trying to perform it.
9. You are very energetic

Your nature demands novelty and experiments, and you want tasks to be performed quickly and efficiently. Many can't keep up with your pace.
10. You don't tolerate lies
Your ability to see through people amazes everyone. Therefore, only honest people have a chance of staying around you.
If someone ever gets a feeling that this list is way too harsh and it's too difficult to handle you, don't get upset. There will definitely be ones you can form a perfect personal and work relationship with.
