    just something I feel applies to me tremendously. often i find myself more comfortable/confident in words and ideas behind a keyboard, this might not strike anybody as unusual, given the keyboard provides you with the ability to refine, edit, copy, re-think et al, but when it comes to real life situations, i tend not to be able to efficiently express my ideas/thoughts into words, which is really quite frustrating- especially when it leads to me inadvertently saying in some cases the actual opposite of what was intended, thus loosing composure/confidence and ultimately adopting a negligent attitude to my thoughts, which is invariably hampering my development.- is this due to me becoming prone to having to perform on a writen/typed platform? i'm not sure about you, but throughout my education the emphasis wasn't on speech, but a vomit of wiki/google information moulded into an acceptable 'essay'.

    it's not the case that i'm absolutely unable to compete intellectually in real life. relatively (as i believe a lot of us suffer from this 'condition') it's not too severe- it's just the inescapable thought that i'm underachieving- and that there's no real solution to it, but is there?

    what are your thoughts?
