    The weird thing about height is that i find the taller people are the less aggressive they are. I'm 6'5 and am never really aggressive or intimidating towards anyone, simply because i don't need to be. With some shorter guys they almost seem to think they need to be aggressive to make up for their lack of height (small man syndrome).

    I have a couple of friends who are actually taller than me (6'8 and 7'0!) and they are the biggest softies i know.

    No. I'm quite tall for a girl but obviously shorter than most guys. I don't find "tallness" intimidating at all actually.

    At 5 foot I feel a bit intimidated when I'm with lots of tall people, like in crowds and stuff. With just one or 2 people I don't as much, but I just feel really young (I am usually younger than them anyway seeing as I was one of the youngest in the year) instead.

    If I was intimidated by people that are taller than me, I'd be afraid to leave the house! I'm only 4ft 11 :redface:

    So, no I'm not intimidated by taller people.

    For some reason I find myself more intimidated by people shorter than me. I'm 5'10 so most people hang around somewhere by my shoulder height it seems and I always feel uncomfortable being taller than them, and a bit abnormal so it sends my social skills down the drain. I love being around people much taller than me, I love feeling little for once :o:

    I"m only 5ft...so it seems like everyone else is taller than me anyway. But no I dont get intimidated by those that are taller than me.

    Not really, I'm 5'10" and it doesn't really bother me when I hang around tall(er) people.

    I might get intimidated if there was tension between us and a fight would potentially break out but otherwise no.
