I have real trouble with this. I ramble far too much. People get so impatient with me because I really can't get to the point. Or it will be because I explain it in a really bad way and then someone jumps on me and says exactly what I said in a different way that's easier to understand but as if they thought of what I just said.
It's mainly through verbal communication that I have these problems but it can happen when I'm writing a post or during a conversation on msn. It's really bothering me because I really can't express myself properly. When I'm calm and comfortable I'm not so bad but most of the time I feel socially awkward and I don't feel very sure of myself. It doesn't help when peopel talk over me because they are getting impatient with my rambling.
I have read that having difficulty articulating thoughts and intuitions is a common trait in INFJs so I was wondering if there were any INFJs that have overcome this problem and could share some advice? It's really knocking my confidence, to the point where I just don't participate in discussions even when I feel strongly about something or if I have something interestng to add.
