What is intimidation?

Intimidation is when someone influences your behavior by instilling fear, threatening negative consequences. Intimidation can occur physically when someone's "comfort zone" is crossed or threatened. One form of this is when someone literally corners you and verbally threatens you. Intimidation can also take a verbal form, such as blackmail, manipulation, or when someone puts you under pressure. Unfortunately, both forms of intimidation occur in the workplace. Sexual intimidation also falls under this category. Download logfile. more.
