Man subconsciously considers the person or persons as a threat to himself and is afraid of his behavior and personality because of his successes. Researchers believe that threat is a kind of communication, and when a person threatens another person, he wants to convey his need to him. People who face shortcomings and fears in their lives threaten others to eliminate the potential danger. A normal person with a healthy mind not only bullies or threatens but treats all people well and happily.
The threat should not be given by threat, but by decisive methods and with full courage can stand against the threat of the people. In this section, we will describe appropriate ways to control individuals against sociological threats.
Methods of controlling communication with threatening people:
Speak confidently, firmly, and honestly
Sentences that convey honesty and start with the word “I” prevent the other person from defending themselves and also show your strength. Combine these phrases with someone else’s tacit approval. Some people want to be heard and feel comfortable that you respect what they say.
Practice and repeat with others
You may think that small circumstances do not make much difference in improving your fears. But surely defending yourself in trivial situations prepares you to face-threatening people and stand up for your positions.
Focus on bullying
Focusing too much on what you want from the bully will increase your anxiety and prevent you from communicating effectively with him. To succeed, think about whether he is stressed or excited. Does a cup of tea or coffee help him? The reason for the other party’s aggressive and threatening behavior may have nothing to do with you.
Ask yourself these questions to see if they have helped you. Some common behaviors, such as saying a few polite sentences, can disarm them and even build a good, long-term relationship with you.
Plan to express the content
The feeling of danger suppresses the human mind and causes sentences to be forgotten. You do not need to write the text and repeat it word for word, especially when your behavior should be normal.
Prepare the mind to interact with the threatening person
In life, many of us compare ourselves to others and feel safe in being good or superior to others. In this situation, the person is a threat to us that can defeat us, and one of the best ways is to avoid comparisons.
Note that there is no basis for comparison. Certainly, you and someone who feels insecure are different in terms of skills, talents, and personality. Therefore, it is not possible to assess your or that person’s recovery. Man is not inherently error-free, and you may not be aware of the mistakes of others.
Review your positive traits to rediscover your problems and self-confidence. Maybe you do not know the person you consider a threat to yourself or in the age of cyberspace; that person does not show his true self, and maybe if you know him well, change your mind and treat him honestly.
Use appropriate body language.
Dealing tactfully with the person you fear shows him that he can not put pressure on you. Psychologists believe that proper physical condition increases self-confidence. Make eye contact and smile when resting. Scientifically, “mirror neurons” in the brain respond positively to elements such as facial expressions and empathy. For this reason, with acceptable and appropriate behavior, you can achieve your desired goals.
