Tips for the 1st Area: How You Should See Your Audience
The way in which you see your audience represents, in general, the main cause for which people are afraid of public speaking and are overwhelmed by emotions when they have to speak while in front of many persons. And, since it is the fundamental cause for this problem, I decided to deal with it first. Then, we will deal with the other three major causes. So, with respect to the first reason, here are the precise things, regarding the manner of seeing the audience, which make the timid or shy persons to run away from speaking in public:
- They tend to see their future or actual listeners as being far superior to them, in most aspects, especially with regards to the social, professional or financial status. This impression is given mainly by the confident and relaxed look of the members of the audience; in the case of the father of the groom speeches, the audience is represented by the wedding guests and the other attendees.
- They think their listeners are very critical of them.
- They have the feeling that their audiences expect them to be perfect.
- They think their listeners are very interested in what they are going to say.
