Often, nervous tension interferes with the perception of information. We do not understand the essence of the question, we answer inappropriately, we skip whole sentences or, without hearing enough, we rush to answer.
At such moments, the psyche is controlled by fear, it enters a person into a fight or flight state (hit or run). So try to slow down the natural reactions of your body and listen - this will allow your interlocutor to also feel significant.
Presentation is the most important part of the interview. Speak calmly - measured speech reduces the degree of experience. But the measure is important in everything, retardation is also not welcome.
It is advisable to discard complex sentences and speech turns, let your presentation be accessible and understandable, without a set of abstruse or cliched words.
