How to become intimidating

Even as it’s understood that inevitably greatness requires beating out competitors in one arena or another, we certainly should not think of ourselves as better than people or be motivated by a general desire to outclass people in general.

New classes start up every month and you can join existing groups of students if you want.

I know one student in particular who suffered a lot of intellectual paralysis, with real academic and personal costs, out of fear of his disapproval.

But when informed that he intimidates people, the professor in question apparently took it as an opportunity to reassert his modesty to whomever he was talking to and (I would imagine) to himself as well.

Course content winds up tailored to your interests as lively and rigorous class discussions determine where exactly we go.

Classes are flexible enough to meet the needs of both beginners and students with existing philosophical background My classes require no outside reading or homework or grades–only a once weekly 2.5 hour commitment that fits the schedules of busy people.

It is easiest for powerful people to unthinkingly hurt less powerful people because in those cases ramifications to the powerful are least likely to come or are least likely to be potent should they come at all.

One thing I have noticed is that an internalized sense of false modesty helps people underestimate their own power.We all know of many ways that powerful people can hurt others deliberately.But sometimes powerful people hurt others inadvertently because they underestimate their power and do careless things which cause harms they never expected, and sometimes never notice even after the fact.My online classes involve live, interactive class discussions with me and your fellow students held over videoconference (using Google Hangout, which downloads in just seconds).Classes involve personalized attention to your own ideas and questions.So she might avoid indulging in feelings of great superiority because such feelings make her feel vainglorious or selfish or megalomaniacal or arrogant, etc. But when you do not viscerally of those power differentials and their possible perils.
