    都不同吧!

    intimidating 令人望而生畏 只是讓人因為不安 所產生的自我防衛感

    程度上 還是 controllable 的範圍

    例: The little boy was intimidated by the policeman.

    frightening 是指嚇到有點會發抖的

    程度上 還是 beyond one's contraol 的範圍

    本質上 是從心裡怕出來的感覺 也不太一樣

    例: The little boy was frightened by his father's violent discipline.

    The little boy was frightened by the thunder.
