Does everybody need to repeat themselves when they talk to someone? either because they can't hear you, or what you say doesn't make sense to them?

Yes. I become anxious so when I speak, sometimes what I say seems quite muddled up. At times I am also very quiet and do get asked to repeat it as well.

This happens to me all the time! I get very nervous when I talk to people so almost always I have a hard time putting thoughts into words so I wind up muttering or explaining something the wrong way, and people will ask me what I mean or for me to repeat it, then I get even more anxious and think that I'm sounding like an awkward idiot. Ugh, vicious cycle, LOL.

Yes, I have to repeat myself once or twice - sometimes more, and it's annoying. Sometimes, when I'm nervous, my words would run into each other where others did not hear me correctly and thought I said something else.

When I get nervous I speak with a completely different voice to when I'm 'safe'. I sound so much quieter, and speak very fast. I also sometimes talk with a slight accent different to my own, although nobody notices, I think. So I do get asked to repeat myself a lot. That really makes me panic.i get my words mixed up, and can't explain myself.

Yes, it drives my brother crazy because he has to repeat himself to me so many times. I just don't hear him, my mind is off doing its on thing and I won't remember him doing something and I will question him and says, "You just saw me do that." My attention to detail does not exist anymore and as a designer it has killed my work, I have lost at least 3 jobs because they didn't think I was paying attention.

When having a general conversation or interview I have to prepare what I am going to say as I worry it will not get across clearly or misunderstood. When chatting with family I have to repeat myself as they don't understand what I am talking about its like I am speaking in a foreign language but in my head I no what I saying! Thinking about this makes me not speak in public so I do not get in this situation and embarrassed.

Absolutely. I talk so quiet and I don't even realize it. I'm naturally softspoken so when I'm feeling nervous, it worsens so much.

Yeah I'm the oppsite of you two, I often mumble or don't speak clearly or loudly enough and people always ask me to repeat myself, it irriates me, I wish I could just be like everyone else. And yes sometimes I have a hard time getting across what I mean, and end up in a twoddle.
