Do you get nervous at public speaking?
Posted 3/31/16
No, public speaking is one thing I'm really good at. I crack all these jokes until the audience starts to think that I'm an idiot, then move on to the next slide.

Never ends. Doesn't matter the size of the audience or the importance of the subject, either. I am just as nervous explaining strategy to three gamers as I am explaining business models to a packed auditorium.

However, I've done enough of it that nobody can tell anymore. They think I'm a "natural" and can speak easily to any number of people about anything. This isn't true. I'm terrified every time.

You just can't SEE it.

Sometimes.

I tend to get a bit nervous if the crowd is very large, but it normally doesn't take too long for me to find my comfort zone. My career path has forced me to speak with people and groups I do not know on a pretty daily basis. I have had to do educational demonstrations multiple times. This has helped me overcome most of my shyness. It helps also, that I simply enjoy being around people. Most people never believe me when I tell them I was nervous.

I hate it. I hate public speaking, I hate doing things in front of other people... took me ages to play guitar hero in front of my boyfriend. I think I'm a bit better now but still not great

I`m not a huge fan of public speaking (which is to say I pretty much hate it) but I have a knack for it. Depending on the topic of the discussion I do get nervous, although I would rather speak my mind about something (especially if it is a topic I feel strongly about) than stand by and say nothing. I am used to having to explain things and direct other people to get things done. What really makes me nervous is when I don`t know how the person or group will react to what I have to say. People are crazy, and unpredictable.

Yes, but not to the extent that it's an impediment.

NO.

This is one of my naturally blessed with abilities that I've on the contrary, enjoyed each opportunity I have had at doing them throughout my life.
