    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.

    is the poor jerk who wanders out on air
    and then looks down. Below his feet, he sees
    eternity, and suddenly his shoes
    no longer work on nothingness, and down
    he goes. As I fall past, remember me."

    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.
