Again, I want to take this annotation a step further to connect it to the curriculum we have been studying in class, PVLEGS. Susan seems to navigate the element of voice with ease as she uses projection along with pauses to help make emphasis on certain pieces of her message.

Paul H (Nov 09 2021 11:25AM) : Speaker Move at 2:34 more

Cain takes 2.5 minutes to illustrate her camp experience with Poise, Voice, Life, Eye Contact, Gestures, and Speed/Pacing. That’s almost 1/6 of her entire speech or about 15% which we have said is appropriate for an EXORDIUM. This is exactly what an exordium does and can do.

Throughout the whole Ted Talk, Susan was never really standing still, She never really sat down. She was always moving, across the whole stage. Her voice stays at a good tone throughout the whole Ted Talk too. It gets a little high when she started to sing for a brief moment, but it went back to the same tone

Austin D (Nov 09 2021 11:38AM) : General consensus of "The Power of Introverts" more

So to start, Susan carries herself very well throughout her presentation. The poise is very strong here and you can tell she cares deeply about the subject based off of the life in her voice. The addition of visual aid is also a great strategy in keeping your audience engaged. Her exordium was a great transition into her presentation as well. Gestures were strong and weren’t pointless and weren’t flying all over the place with no real representation of her voice.

Grace C (Nov 09 2021 12:29PM) : moves more

She uses “moves” like talking about how introverts are usually smarter people and get better grades, how some of the smartest and most inventive people worked alone, how he best students are mostly introverts, religions that work alone are the most loving, and her three calls for actions; Stop the madness for constant group work; go to the wilderness be like buda and have your own revelations; and take a good look at what’s inside your own suitcase and why you put it there. These moves solidify her throughline.

Reese G (Nov 09 2021 12:36PM) : Eye contact more

Lauren T (Nov 09 2021 12:37PM) : PVLEGS more

As I completed part B of the assignment and looked at the different times in which Susan used elements from the acronym PVLEG, I noticed there is no set time for any element. Susan constantly uses Poise as she presents herself on the stage, she appears both calm and collected and avoids nervous habits. Voice is something Susan comes across naturally as she uses projection to ensure her message is loud and clear. Life, the entire message conveyed by Susan is based on the power of introverts and personal life experiences. Eyecontact, Susan never fails to make eyecontact with her audience as it keeps them engaged with what she is saying. Gesture, as several classmates made note of, Susan made use of her body language to guide and emphasize her message using her hands often to help bold her statement. The final element is speed, and Susan talks at a swift but smooth pace, not too fast nor too slow. She also makes use of pauses which seems to allow the audience to engage and appreciate what she has to say along with emphasizing what she has said.

Lauren T (Nov 09 2021 12:38PM) : Add On more

She pauses after saying there’s no correlation to having a good idea and being a talker. She makes her point with some humor.

“Much Better for everybody to go off by themselves, generate their own ideas freed from the distortions of group dynamics, and then come together as a team to talk them through in a well managed environment and take it from there.”

Emily M (Nov 09 2021 11:29AM) : Poise: Walking more

This is one example from the speech in which Cain is pacing across the stage. She does this periodically throughout her speech and this creates purposeful movements that add value to her speech. In moving from one side to the other she is able to address all people in the audience but does not stop speaking as she walks as that would be distracting from the message and audience interpretation.

Now I don’t really think this fall under any of the categories of PVLEGS but I just thought it was very important to mention the use of visual aid. For starters, it is a great callback to her exordium and keeps the audience engaged. It also traps this sense of wonder and mystery for the audience.

She has this suitcase full of books which is a gesture, but it also shows how her personality is still the same. It connects bag to her summer camp story as well. She’s still the girl who loves books even as an adult.

At this time, Cain shares her own personal example of her grandfather who was a Rabbi but still struggled with eye contact even though he was speaking to the same group of people every week for over 60 years. While she is sharing this though, she maintains eye contact with her audience and that makes the speech more engaging. She has continually used eye contact throughout the speech to engage the audience.

Although she uses eye contact during the entire talk, I think it’s easy to see here. This is her main point, so she’s really looking at them so they hear her. You can also see her looking at the audience when they clap for her and she thanks them.

She has maintained a constant tone and voice level throughout the speech yet here she whispers her conclusion of “to speak softly”. This displays how in a similar way that being louder could emphasize a point however, in this case, it was a much better decision to whisper as she it telling the audience to speak softly. In a way, she is demonstrating what she wants them to do although it is not something that they are unaware of and also holds a great metaphorical meaning rather than a literal one.
