I'm the one who gets intimidated instead of doing the intimidating.

I'm not very intimidating, pretty girls aren't intimidating if they don't try to be. Plus I'm hyper self conscious and am afraid of people physically bigger than me(most people), though mostly just guys.

I'm only intimidating whenever I'm in a court room.

Yes, I am. I seldom try. I'm usually in a mellow or serious mood, so I often don't feel like it. Yes, I consider me being intimidating a good thing, because people are more likely to take me seriously, and I can use it to my advantage as a defense/attack. It puts off some people and has resulted in unwarranted fear on more than one occasion, but I generally prefer my solitude or a small group, and I can easily dispel any false impressions if need be.

FYI: My face + generally quiet and solitary nature is the most common reason why people find me intimidating. I look like I'm scowling/glaring when I'm not smiling. Just me staring off into space tends to be interpreted as hostile, even if I'm actually day-dreaming about velociraptors running and leaping about my location. The second most common reason is me getting annoyed and/or angry.

I'm not naturally intimidating at all, nor do I try to be, and while I'm prone to being intimidated, I've found that it's extremely rare for people to try to do so. People tend to show me a fair bit of respect. I'm guessing either because I always do the same for them or because I act like the stereotypical smart guy that I am and they don't consider me a safe target. Either way, my social experiences usually go quite smoothly despite my inherent cowardliness.

As for whether intimidation is a good thing, it rather obviously isn't. I disapprove of any unilateral decision, and intimidation is one of the primary methods of bringing about such a thing.

My mother once told me I walk around with an expression on my face that makes me look like I'm about to kill someone.
Really I'm actually quite a bubbly person, I just have a really unpleasant neutral expression.
So I'm accidentally intimidating until you speak to me.

What kind of intimidation
These two type of intimidation:

(both main characters in Toradora were intimidating in their own way)

Or this kind of intimidation:

(Makishima being intimidating in looks, charisma, brains and fighting skills)

There are also the funny, sarcastic, rude, out of touch types of intimidation.

I tend to be polar on this.
Sometimes I laugh like a pirate and other times I giggle like a little girl.

I've been called scary. I'm not terribly tall (5'11" / 180cm), but I'm pretty muscular as a result of fighting (zero weights). I've become convinced over the years that it gives off a vibe. Wide shoulders, probably a weight-balancing swagger, controlled movements.

That being said, I have a wide humor streak, am quick to smile, and love physical contact. Touching arms, back pats, hugs, people trust me because while we're interacting I use body language to make them more comfortable. It completely offsets however intimidating I looked before I opened my mouth.

The dichotomy pretty much has to exist because it doesn't make sense to others that both versions really are me.
