    For example, today someone asked me for change to buy food, i said i got nothing. Even though I was carrying a kfc sweetcorn I didnt realise.

    Thats an example... also phone calls, sometimes I leave one thinking **** why didnt I ask...

    I want to think like how they want us to think in an exam, and I want to think effectively in suprising situations

    You just have to cope with it. It is difficult, but as soon as you are confronted with an uncomfortable situation you need to immediately try your best to respond to it. And sometimes you won't have very much time. I just go along with whatever is easiest. E.g. someone asks me to do something - I try my best to do it. I only reject if I have a severe moral reason to do so. You have to dismiss your own feelings and just focus on what needs to be done.

    This same thing happens with me - but it's annoying because it happens too frequently. Maybe that's a psychological trick though - maybe I'm just focusing mainly on the things that went wrong. On the other hand, something has helped me. I've sharpened my saw.

    The big thing I do is hesitate before I answer. This gives me some crucial seconds to think of some stuff before I say things without thinking. It helps to talk a lot and get into these kinds of situations as well - you'll be quite used to them and not only that, but the experience of talking face-to-face can help with spontaneous talking.
