    Default NFs: good public speakers?

    Just curious. There are days I have trouble carrying on a coherent long term conversation one on one but I can get in front of a crowd of hundreds and do really well.

    ENFs are often natural public speakers. INFJs can be good if they develop the 'persona' they want to take on in front of a crowd. INFPs probably struggle the most - at least to start off with.

    At least, those are my observations in general.

    Well - depends on the topic. If its something I know something about or want to share with others - and its a group of people I'm familiar with - I won't be sick.....

    Anything else - I might pass out cold.

    I'm pretty good at public speaking. Provided I care about the topic, am fairly well prepared, and have sufficient energy to keep "extroverting" the entire way through.

    My ENFJ is an outstanding public speaker.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    The thought of public speaking makes me ill and so does the preparation for it. But once I get up there something clicks and I'm a whole new chatty, entertaining version of myself.

    I have stunned professors and classmates this way given my general silence during the entire semester.

    I'm generally decent with it. I think I'm probably a lot more comfortable than a lot of my peers, although I don't do it often enough to have really refined the skills to be great. The comfort is there though.
