I wouldn’t say scare, but there are definitely some clients who I dread speaking to due to rudeness/abrasive personalities

No, my client counterparts are very nice.

No my client counterparts have all been great, even some of the more executive level leaders I interact with on engagements are keenly interested in talking about our work streams and research. If you have clients that scare you I would talk to your manager about being moved to a different engagement, that is not normal

Yeah sometimes. But it's less about the client actually being scary and more being nervous about being the "expert" they're paying so much $$$ for. Nervous about not knowing an answer or being wrong.
