Intimidation is when someone influences your behavior by instilling fear, threatening negative consequences. Intimidation can occur physically when someone's 'comfort zone' is violated or threatened. One form of this is, for example, when someone literally corners you and verbally threatens you. Intimidation can also take a verbal form, such as extortion, manipulation, or when someone pressures you. Unfortunately, both forms of intimidation occur in the workplace.
