This is a discussion on INFPs as a Talented Speaker (Public Speaking) within the INFP Forum - The Idealists forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; I love public speaking/theatre/acting... because everything I say is prepared and thought out in my head before hand...speaking to people ...

    I love public speaking/theatre/acting... because everything I say is prepared and thought out in my head before hand...speaking to people in real time is so much harder because I need more time to process my thoughts before speaking what I feel/think...more then the average extrovert that is...

    After reading that...I kind of sound mentally retarded. Oh well... it is what it is...

    Ya its soo true, when we do public speaking, we're usually prepared (even if its impromptu, its gona revolve around a certain given topics thats have the least tendency to offence anyone)
    But ya, in real time its much harder coz we have to think fast to reply to someone else bout what we think/feel

    This is true. I've won awards for speaking-related activities (debate, etc) in high school, college and law school.

    PROBLEM
    Being INFP, your social skills are not as great as your Public Speaking Skill. You tend to do things alone, go to the cafe alone n spend very little time socializing.
    I don't see why this is a problem.

    RESULT
    People mistakenly think you are arrogant; not befriending others because u r better than them, like you are more capable than them.
    I've never had this issue.

    Same with me Oh i went to law school too, joined mooting but i didnt quite like it.

    I don't see why this is a problem.

    Ya i shouldnt hv used the heading 'problem'. It maybe is a 'potential consequence'

    I've never had this issue.
    I think, what happens is there are certain people who wudnt approach the talented speakers becoz they might feel insecure just looking at how well these speakers can talk, im just repeating one of the members post in his reply to this thread. there might me some truth in it...coz..i myself do feel insecure to approach speakers who are WWAAAYY better than i am...probably that's what the other think about me, and wrongly thought that they feel im arrogant when thats not actually what they're thinking...

    This forum is interesting,it really gives me new insights n new ways of looking at things. thanx Timeless.

    Accurate for me. Not to brag, but I can be exceptional when it comes to public speaking if I have plenty of time to prepare and practice. I had people coming up to me because they were surprised about this side of me afterward. Unfortunately, it can backfire and I can be the worst and start stuttering, making a fool of myself.

    haha the way i see it, it's not because you guys were prepared; it was likely because there was no actual interaction, hence zilch need for social anxiety.

    I must admit, I can get really emotional when I'm speaking in public (if it's words I chose myself), not realizing how much I mean what I'm saying until I say it - and then as my voice starts breaking, people think I'm nervous. Uh, no... I'm just passionate.
