I am curious what kind of connotation does the word 'Commanding' have. Does it have the same kind of connotation as a leader has of 'strength' and 'maturity'? Or does it have a negative connotation of a 'controlling' and 'bossy' person? Take the example of the following sentence. He has a commanding persona.
Edit: Well, a google search gives me the following sentence here. The previous sentence was self-made but, the term seems to be in use. I don't know where to research about connotations so, this is the first place that I came to. Nevertheless, I did search the term in dictionaries and thesauruses and got words such as 'imposing' (google search definition) and 'dominating' referenced. Wondering if anyone here has any insight. There might as well be no negative connotations attached but, I wanted to know if there were.
