Generally, intimidating others boosts another person's fragile ego or feeds into their imposter syndrome.
Some of the behavior may appear as put downs, over talking, towering over someone, death-grip handshakes, and friendly-looking touches that are actually painful.
While some of us intimidate with words, there are others who choose to do so with actions (like transferring or firing) and a few others use Silence as a technique. I had a boss who would ignore me when I didn't do exactly as she instructed.
My peers and I would question her tactics. We didn't feel safe with her. She would attempt to humiliate us when others were around.
