i was being told several times by friends and associates that i talk so animated. LOL. they would always tell me that it seems that i have all the expression on my face when i talk and you tend to listen. i used to take it as an insult but eventually i realized that it is more of a compliment... LOL. are you animated as well or your too lifeless when talking with others?

Hello kenchiprincess! Normally, I am not that animated. However, when I deliver my lectures in class or when I am invited as a speaker, I talk with all the animations. I find it as a good strategy so as not to bore my listeners. It is a great strategy to keep their attention on me. At the same time, being animated when I talk helps me emphasize on certain points that would otherwise be misunderstood or taken in the wrong context.

hello there, being a teacher or a lecturer requires vitality and life so that you would be able to catch your listeners attention and to fully convey with them your thoughts and idea and avoid misunderstanding. that is a really cool strategy. thanks for sharing and have a great day!!! keep on molding minds!!!

Haha, when I get hyperactive I can be! I think it's really sweet when people are animated when they talk - it's like they are telling the best story ever!

this is a good question. I always talk with full expression and even have a loud and high pitch voice that would attract the attention of neighbors. sometimes my friends reminded me to low my volume for I am talking so loud. I am offended sometimes when they would tell me that while I am talking because I am unaware of it. That is just the way I am relating my point.
