Introverts, stutterers and nerds in the spotlight

Films about outsiders are very popular in Hollywood: recently seen “The Biggest Showmann” and a few years ago “The King's Speech”. Such films have long since been awarded at the best-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

“The Kings Speech” for example, which I recently watched and was thrilled. Because the content is really encouraging - and not only stuttering people, but also many introverted people who want to get a voice in a noisy world or even have to due to professional circumstances.

What exactly is it about? “The King's Speech” is a British biography by director Tom Hooper from 2010 in which Colin Firth portrays the British King George VI. represents. The film won four awards at the 2011 Academy Awards in the categories of Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Original Screenplay.

Looking for a new job?

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 George VI. suffered from the teasing to which he was exposed due to his stuttering: "Maybe he should look for a new job!" advises speech therapist Lionel Logue of the later Queen Mum in the film.

Away with fear!

We have heard such sayings, whether we stutter or not, somehow everyone has heard: "Let it be better, you can't!" or "You can't do it anyway" are such typical well-meaning advice. And always from people who don't trust us with 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

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.

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

"Because I have something to say!"

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 is it that the film is not just about stuttering, but above all 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

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 that the 80th Academy Awards 2011 also called “And the Oscar goes to 'The Kings Speech'”. The film was awarded four of the five Oscars in the main 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

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 it is a language problem, not being able to hear, being different - when in the media the perfect person is probably beaming towards us over 90%. Get out of isolation and seek out other self-help groups, find out that there are completely different intensities. Not everyone is an amazing genius, the genius in everyone needs to be tickled out. Exchange - the one who sees nothing with the one who hears nothing - how are you getting along? Promote creativity in the group, talk to each other, write to develop or reject ideas. Do this regularly. Weekly, challenge and force yourself. “We said that you would bring the concept with you today! Where is it?" "Yes, I know you are dirty and go on?"
