2. If someone is constantly saying things that hurt your feelings, expressly say “that hurts my feelings.”

Watch various interviews with different people, and count the times they use audible pauses like “umm”. Using silence to gather your thoughts makes you come off as more collected.

Alternatively, you can restate the question as you gather your response. — “How did you come up with X as a solution to Y?” “I used X as a response to Y because it made me think of Z, which led to the realization…”

    4 Add work before their name and it will be near the bottom of your contacts and less likely to be scrolled to. Capitals don’t do anything.
    5 It won’t make you come off as smarter, the rest of your sentence will. Also, remaining silent instead of acknowledging someone with an answer, or noise, may come off as rude.
