Public Speaking for Introverts: Jonesing for the Zone

Extroverts' Rocket Fuel Can Be Introverts' Kryptonite---and Vice Versa

Use Quiet Time to Zone In

What do you do during your quiet time? You might like to review your notes, if even to go over your first few lines. You might like to meditate or just take a few deep breaths. Or you might like a quick multimedia buzz by tuning into some soothing or inspiring music or a video on your iPod. Or bring a poem, a picture, or some other touchstone to help you ease into your zone.
