Do you rehearse what you're going to say before you call someone important?

Whenever I'm calling someone that is important or about an important subject I'll almost always go over what I will say in my head. I hate being unprepared or stumbling on words!

Anyone else do this or am I just a perfectionist weirdo?

  • No, you're not alone! I do the same thing. I even rehearse conversations in my head just in case a certain topic comes up. I don't really know why I do it, but I guess it's good to be prepared. So I totally understand you!

  • Lol yes I kind of run over things in my mind and think how they'll go.

    I think about what they'll say and how I might respond.

    It makes things less awkward for me.

  • Sometimes... but you have to be careful not to overdo it. If something is too rehearsed, it can come off as shallow or empty. But on the other hand, if you don't think about what you're going to say and you just kind of blurt it out - it can appear thoughtless. It's really a fine line...

  • Yes, definitely. I still end up stumbling a bit but at least I know what I want to say. If I'm just calling a friend, though, probably not... even though I rarely call my friends.

  • More than that, I make notes on my laptop about it.
