Default Re: Rate your conversation/speaking skills with this scale

Then there's times when I capture people's attention, not just those I'm talking to directly but even other people around. People will stop and focus on what I have to say and everything just 'flows' naturally, with clarity, and precision. Authoritative but relatable.

I guess I'm weird.
They completely contradict each other. "There is carry over" is key from the OP. That said..

#4 says, "The person you are talking to usually speaks more than you do" while #8 says, "This person almost always leads his conversations".
#4 says "On average, you'd say the person you are talking to is definitely better at holding a conversation than you are, even if only by a little" while #8 says, "On average, you'd say you're definitely better at holding a conversation than the person/people you're talking to".
#4 says "You feel the person you're talking to often feels uncomfortable" while #8 says "You never feel like the person you're talking to is uncomfortable"

Unless you're just talking about day to day(which now that I read the rest of your post I think you are), but still, "On average" and "usually" is key.
