Acute, intense stage fright?


You do not have to go to the hospital with stage fright, but it can still put you off track. Excessive stage fright often gets you just when you’re already nervous. And when it increases to a certain extent, it assumes an intensity that is beyond the stimulating effect.

A typical example: The moment before you have to step in front of your audience, the fear is so intense that you want to cancel it or suspect that you can only complete it to a limited extent.

Typical symptoms of stage fright and speech anxiety


Symptoms of excessive stage fright or speech anxiety or performance anxiety hinder the speaker. A successful performance is then unfortunately rather questionable.

Much more helpful would be a positive-excited state that does not distract too much from the performance, the audience and the speech.




1. Your thinking and the cognitive symptoms


The thoughts revolve around fears, worries, and fears that arise …

  • on your performance
  • on your rating
  • on how the audience rates you.

Devaluing thoughts, as well as one’s claim to performance, can be so strong that in the worst case one feels worthless if the speech does not correspond to one’s expectations. The thoughts and fears can occur before, during or after the speech situation and differ in intensity.




2. Emotional symptoms


During stage fright and speech anxiety, we are overcome by a series of emotions. Unfortunately, there are almost always negative feelings. The emotions range from mild discomfort to panicked emotions:

  • anxiety
  • strain
  • excitement
  • nervousness
  • panic
  • mourning
  • unrest
  • uncertainty
  • despair

What feelings do you associate with your stage fright? Are there temporal or situational changes?




3. Physical symptoms


Due to the fear, the body is on alert. The sympathetic system of our autonomic nervous system releases the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and epinephrine.

But as we are not like our ancestors in the wilderness quickly flee or fight the danger, unfortunately, these substances provide no helpful contribution. Instead, there are unpleasant physical reactions such as:

  • tense muscles
  • increased pulse
  • high blood pressure
  • blush
  • memory problems
  • faster breathing
  • sweat
  • stomach, intestinal problems

Everyone has their typical physical reactions that bother him the most. Interestingly, primarily the thoughts and feelings that accompany us with the physical symptoms that make them so unpleasant, embarrassing or anxious.




4. Behavioral symptoms


Typical symptoms of behavior:

  • Speak
    • The voice becomes too soft, monotonous, shaky.
    • The voice is higher than usual.
    • The speech flow is disturbed.
    • The speed of speech is too fast, too slow or halting.
    • Slips of opinion are increasing.
    • Word-finding problems
    • Stress suffers from bad breathing.
    • Breathing becomes superficially fast, hectic, flat.
    • The throat feels weird and it is often cleared.
  • The facial expressions become rigid and immobile, often masklike.
  • The body movements are hectic, angular, awkward, stiff, immobile.
  • The usually skilled handling of tools and instruments is clumsy.
  • View
    • Eye contact is avoided, is restless, often very rigidly focused on the manuscript.
    • The view is lowered to the ground or directed to the ceiling.

Some changes in behavior, such as clearing off the throat, are consciously noticed, while others are typically unaware of other changes, such as rigid facial expressions.
