Last few weeks I've been going out talking to random people at different speech speeds. After the talk I asked them to be brutally honest with me -- and tell me what their first impression was of me.
Although answers were influenced by the kindness of most people, they still got me on this interesting conclusion.
When I talk fast I become very energetic and proactive but people don't take me serious. However when I slow down my speech, people do take me very serious but think I'm boring.
Actors and public speakers seem to pull it off to talk slowly and still be really energetic, fun and outgoing.
When I try it my mind just numbs down. So how do they do it?
