Introverts, stutterers and nerds in the spotlight

Overview

Films about outsiders are high in Hollywood Course: Recently seen as "The Biggest Showman" and a few years ago "The King's Speech". Such films have long since ceased at the most well-known international awards ceremonies.

This shows that we are in a state of social change here: even as an introvert or stutterer, you can go far - and that's why we need such role models and maybe even the somewhat chatty Hollywood movies.

The Kings Speech - from the king who stuttered

Overview

"The Kings Speech", that's what I saw recently and was thrilled. Because the content really encourages courage - and not just stuttering people, but also many more introverted natures who want to get a voice in a loud world or even have to work due to professional circumstances.

What exactly is it? "The King's Speech" is a British biopic of director Tom Hooper from the year 2010, in the Colin Firth the British King George VI. represents. The film won four Academy Awards 2011 awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.

Looking for a new job?

Overview

The real sticking point of the topic: The film deals with the career of the British King George VI. from the self-doubting stutterer to the dignified head of state, who had to give Britain and the former colonies courage during the Second World War.

Because Georg VI. suffered since his early childhood on the teasing, which he was exposed by his stuttering: "He should perhaps seek a new profession," advises speech therapist Lionel Logue the later Queen Mum in the film.

Away with fear!

Overview

Such sayings, whether we stutter or not, we have somehow all schonmal: "Let that be better, you can not!" Or "You can not do it anyway" are such typical well-meaning advice. And always from people who do not trust us what we want to do anyway.

In my opinion, too many people fit into this judgment, and from that point on, they are guided by your fears instead of simply doing what they want. In other words, you simply resign!

Beyond yourself

Overview

George VI. was lucky - because he had no choice. When his brother Edwart VIII renounced the throne for an unrelated relationship, he became king - including public appearances. And that meant to the shy man that he was practically forced to overcome his fears.

In principle, I am not a fan of the British royal family, but I think the film showed very nicely in moving pictures that even reserved, insecure people who believe in themselves can outgrow themselves and achieve a lot. If only you overcome your fear!

"Because I have something to say!"

Overview

Or as it says in a review of the film so aptly:

We suffer with Bertie when he does not speak a word in a speech at the Wembley Stadium and fears with his speech to the nation in which he announces that England will participate in the Second World War.

In no scene does that mean that the movie is not just about stuttering, but more about finding your own inner voice: "Why should I waste my time listening to you?" "Logue asks the king. "Because I have something to say!" Says the king.

Courage also for other stutterers

Overview

By the way, the film has now drawn circles and also makes other stutterers courage: Stuttering teenagers in the US hope for example that the film helps to dismantle prejudices against the talking. Unfortunately, they still exist.

No wonder it's the 80. Oscar ceremony 2011 then also called "And the Oscar goes to, The Kings Speech '". The film was awarded four of the five Oscars in the major categories: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Collin Firth had also won the Golden Globe for Best Actor.

To encourage and be a role model: Despite stuttering in politics

Overview


But stuttering also plays a role in German politics. Malte Spitz shows that even with this handicap you can be politically successful. He was from 2004 to 2006 Political CEO of the Green Youth and 2006 to 2013 assessor in the Federal Board of Alliance 90 / The Greens. From June 2014 to May 2016 he was a member of the national executive committee of Alliance 90 / The Green North Rhine-Westphalia.

In an interview he spoke about the multiple Oscar-winning film and about the way he wants to be in public with stutterers. The example shows: Only have courage and believe in yourself.

    Shyness and introversion are such important issues that are often forgotten in this noisy world. Thank you.

    It has always been very difficult to find appreciative work with a handicap.
    Whether, a language problem, can not hear, be different - where in the media, the perfect man about us probably 90% against. Get out of isolation and other support groups, find that there are other strengths. Not everyone is an insane genius, the genius in each one has to be teased out. Sharing - the one who sees nothing with the one who hears nothing - how do you cope? Encourage creativity in the group, talk to each other, write to develop or reject ideas. This regularly. Weekly, challenge and force. "We said that you bring the concept today! Where is it? "" Yes, I know, you're getting dirty and moving on? "
