Why are people afraid of me?

This is something i’m really confused about. It has been something that has been mentioned to me a few times over the last few months and i’m genuinely confused on why it is.

What has been said to me was that when people first meet me, i scared them. I’m not really sure why, i don’t feel like to put off a scary vibe. Maybe it’s because i’m tall so people are afraid of heights or something. I have done some research and found that there could be some reasons why people are scared of me.


This to put it simply is the fear of giants or tall people. This could be the reason why people are afraid of me, they might have a genuine fear of tall people. For those of you who don’t know me i stand at 193cm or just over 6 foot 3 inches. In a study done in 2011-2012 it was found that the average height of Australians for males is 175cm (5ft 9in) and females is 161cm (5ft 3in). So as you can see for most people i’m a whole 20 to 30cm taller than them. This could be the reason why they are scared of me.

The first time they see me was during basketball game

This one is self explanatory with the reason coming down to them seeing me play basketball and being scared of me. You see i’ve played basketball for years and have even played for State Representative sides and the position i play might not help either. The position i play is center which for those of you might not know is the tallest on the team (typically), with this position comes a certain need for aggressiveness. It’s my job to defend the ring and to get rebounds so sometimes i have to be a little mean about it. This point proves that you don’t judge a book by its cover…or that i should be less mean on the court.

I look grumpy

This one comes courtesy of my lovely wife who mentions that i look grumpy most of the time. I assure you i don’t do it intentionally…it’s just my face. Although i do see how people would see this and assume i’m mean but it’s just my face. This one i’m not to sure about as i don’t think it’s true but who knows.

There you go here are my ideas to why people are afraid of me…what do you guys think? do i look scary to you? If so what is the reason?
