The same conditions exist in sociocracy, full-group consensus, etc. It’s to be expected that anyone who is not familiar with formal legislative sessions using parliamentary procedure will be intimidated. Before trying to participate in such a process, people need some training and practice. These are available to the newly elected. The chair can also take a moment to help a new member get the process right. Members consult with each other as well. But like any other process, it can be used abusively as well to embarrass and silence people. But that isn’t unique to Robert’s Rules. That something is intimidating may also be an indication of its power. It organizes deliberation and values contributions of members.
