#29B THE THREATENING, VIOLENT PERSON

I often am able to get what I want by intimidating and instilling fear in other people, by verbally and/or physically threatening them. Since this succeeds to the extent the threat is believable, I've got a reputation associated with verbal abuse and occasionally resorting to actual  physical violence. (Note: Some who lack restraint use the old threat system, based on “Give it to me or I’ll hurt you” or “Pay me and I’ll quit bothering you.” A more modern approach is to file or threaten a lawsuit.  Of course abandoning restraint is often justifiable.)
