Are you self-conscious when people watch you perform certain tasks?


What tasks are you self-conscious about doing in front of others? As a left-handed person, I don't like people watching when I do tasks in the kitchen or other physical tasks that I approach differently than other people. But I am certain that there are right-handed people who are self-conscious when other people are watching them. I noticed a man who was trying to pull his 5th wheel RV into a spot who simply was getting in a worse and worse position as others gathered around to guide him in. If you are self-conscious when people watch you, where do you think that feeling originated.

    MB, an idea that worked for me. The next time you walk into a meeting think to yourself, "I'm an AUTHOR. Hundreds of people read my work and even though training is what you do, this "secret" will make your whole body take on an air of confidence.

    My mother used to say "We wouldn't care so much about what other people thought about us if we realized how little they do :)

    Hey CJ, thanks so much. If I ever watch you golf, I promise I'll never watch on the first drive :)

    Good catch. I was going to write "upset" or "nervous" or "embarrassed" for the question, but "flustered would be a much better word. I had to laugh at the scene you painted. Those of us with small families couldn't handle all that. You're a saint!
