Default Too quiet speaking to other people?

Hi,

Are you also asked to repeat what you've just said, due to too quiet speaking? :?:

I have sometimes the feeling I'm either ignored or not loudly speaking, so that other people either don't pay attention to my words or simply don't hear them... :? It's pretty embarrassing.

I've a colleague who also speaks very quietly, but he rather doesn't have the SA. He's simply shy, I think.

Cheers for you all!

I'm really not so stupid, it only seems so.

When I'm feeling nervous or around people I'm not comfortable with I'm very quiet. I can remember more than one occasion when I've said something and literally no sound came out lol... That was embarrassing. And I used to have to repeat myself a lot when I was at school.

But when I'm around people I'm comfortable with I'm not quiet.

This happens to me all the time! I talk so quietly that people say "What?" And I have to repeat myself. It is so awkward and embarrassing that I just stay quiet and end up saying nothing just to avoid the embarassment.

I agree.

I find it difficult to produce a 'normal' level of volume- I'm either too quiet (so I get asked to repeat things), or too loud (people then ask why I'm speaking so loud!). :evil:

hey i've got the same problem. if i feel down and uncomfortable i would just mumble quietly and people just don't understand what i'm saying. when i feel confident i'm speaking real loud
