Gandalf chooses his behavior according to whatever the situation calls for [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin had also gotten angry, stood up and bellowed just a few minutes earlier when the dwarves had gotten unruly over how many dragons Gandalf had killed.

It seems to be the customary way for the leader to assert dominance and keep order at a dwarf meeting.

Notice how different a manner Gandalf assumes at the White Council meeting.

And before he went into Rivendell, he spoke of their task requiring tact and charm, and there he was, the charming dinner guest at Elrond's table.

There are moments like that in LOTR also, where he tailors his behavior towards people (for instance, Theoden) according to what the situation calls for and what he wants to accomplish.

In Bag End, he chose that display of power at that particular moment because it was what the moment required.
