[pgvgjznf] Learning to intimidate

Intimidation is an important skill for success in various cultures and subcultures.  Where do people learn it, and in particular, practice it during the process of learning?

For many things, one enters the world in the most subservient status, so not an appropriate venue for practicing intimidation: child subservient to parent, new employee subservient to bosses.  Then, one can imagine lack of opportunities for first-hand practice in intimidation preventing advancement, so a feedback loop.

Learning by intimidating younger siblings.  Or perhaps male siblings learning on female siblings.  Not everyone has siblings.

Obviously, schools.  But policies against bullying may prevent people learning this socially important skill.

Of course, the fact that it is an important and socially useful skill is a larger problem.

Previous similar, learning cheating and deception as life skill.
