    I trust you

    For a presentation is it more important to convey the information in picture or text during a presentation when you use PowerPoint? I am leaning towards going more visuals with less text. I like steve jobs presentation style.

    Topic is scientific/ecology type presentation, audience will be a variety as far as education (some lay people, some with phd's) all of them know little to nothing on the topic I am presenting.

    I have done presentations before but for some reason I feel unsure how to present the info I want to share in the most effective way.

    I am wasting too much time trying to make this right and I can no longer think straight like a normal human being LOL please help.

    Thanks

    If you're presenting to a lot of ENTJs then you might want to make the presentation more visual with less text and explain the topic of the slide to the audience yourself. I've noticed that ENTJs especially tend to become kind of annoyed when presented with a Powerpoint presentation that puts up a book on each slide. I've seen some people ask for a downloadable copy of such a powerpoint then they'd simply leave the presentation so definitely maintain your value as the presenter by not putting EVERYTHING on the slides.

    imo A presentation's value is the chance to create new beliefs and memories in your audience, that benefit your goals.
    In business, I'd say it's to project credibility that you are the one to come to, people can learn the specifics after.

    Who is your audience
    Laymen and PhD non-experts, large or small crowd (proximity to the screen?)
    What is their purpose and expectations
    ...mandatory attendance?, personal interest?, to become engaged in local issues?
    What are your goals
    Is this just to create awareness/learning, are you aiming to build relationships with the audience? are you hoping the audience will make a change in their behaviour as a result of the presentation? encourage others to study in your field etc, build a reputation/network as someone who can apply their knowledge to real-world vacancies etc

    A design process could be:
    1. Select the Belief/Memory to instill in the audience
    2. Budget Presentation Time to cover the primary beliefs/memories
    3. Project the Belief/Memory with 'communication tools' (story, pictures, models, text, humour, emotion, group exercises, body language (hand-eye-posture-movement-habits etc), personal recognition, questions, greeting before the presentation, appearance of not frequently checking your notes, scientific credibility signalling (references) etc ... you get the idea)

    tldr: Pictures are generally better than text.

    Visuals > text.
    Use text only as bullet points, if possible.

    Use both of these to emphasize your oral presentation. Think less in terms of visual “props” and more in terms of connecting with your audience. You mentioned Steve Jobs—what made his presentations great was his infectious enthusiasm for the product and his ability to captivate his audience with his storytelling.

    Not ENTJ but I had to do this a lot. The best advice I can give is :

    Make it a conversation.

    Not telling to actually interact with the audience, but to talk to the audience as you make your presentation. You can just imagine yourself talking to a friend in a restaurant, about all these so fucking important scientific/ecologic thing. Like oh bro, listen to this this and that ! You so MUST look at this *throw visual*, well to simplify it's kinda like *throw a joke that sums it up* ! You can make it formal or course, but that's the gist of it.

    The only difference is that you don't just have one friend listening to you, but one whole room. Don't forget to make eye contacts, not only to get the audience engaged, but to see their reactions. You'll instinctly know what needs to be corrected and when. That also adds to the "conversation" thing.

    Also if you suck at visuals, use them as little as possible. Visuals keep the audience away from you, if you put too much texts, they'll read it and not listen to you. And that's a presentation, and the big bonus compared to an article or video you can look on internet, is that there's a live human being here, a-k-a you.

    Good luck !
