Being Unable To Articulate Your Thoughts

Being Unable To Articulate Your Thoughts
  • Many introverts face difficulty in being able to articulate what is in their minds into words.
  • Introverts process information in a much deeper way, trying to think of the exact word, and this prolonged word-retrieval exercise makes them ‘freeze’.
  • Introverts like to chew on ideas and are not vocal about their deep, inner thoughts.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Stress, anxiety and any sort of pressure to divulge, recall or remember certain information can be a mental lock, interfering with memory.

When your mind goes blank, one can try the following:

  1. Be calm and relaxed, practising quietness for a few moments.
  2. Buy yourself some time.
  3. Let your mind wander and naturally unlock your memory in a relaxed manner.
  4. Do not feel embarrassed and tell the person that you will get back to them by text or email, as you are engrossed in something else right now.

Due to the way their brains are wired, introverts make great writers, able to express themselves in a more comfortable and relaxed manner, as they take their own time to build a great story or narrative.

Many introverts prefer text messages or email over phone calls, and are great at journaling and blogging.

Like in a computer hard disk, information that is retained for long periods of time is in our long-term memory and is not easy to recall reflexively, as it is outside our conscious awareness.

Our short-term memory (also called working memory or active memory) is smaller in size and recalls information in an instant.

Introverts seem to favour long-term memory over short-term memory.
