    Whenever i engage in some sort of argument or debate with my friends, I always find I can't convey my thoughts out in a verbal way properly. Whenever I do talk, I always get this mindblank and I start to automatically panic because I can't think of what to say quickly enough compared to my friends. I recently had an interview for a gap year placement and I remember I took my time with the answers I gave so I could think them through properly. But even then, my mind goes blank and stays that way so I end up having to say some stuff that doesn't make sense.

    Anyone know how I can be more articulate and get rid of these mindblanks? If anyone knows of any places/ courses which help you with things like this it will be a massive help
